Stop the installment of the new Baldwin Wallace dining plan

While the new system that is looking to overtake the current Jacket Express system looks okay on the surface, there are many problems with it that limit students' success due to financial need. One problem is the cancellation of a rollover from the money put into the dining plan to tuition fees. Many students use this money in order to manage paying their tuition, myself included. Another issue includes the price of class materials, which often exceeds the "flex money" that is put into the plan. This means that many students will be paying additional money out of pocket just to attend a school that is already very expensive. Even in cases where the flex money isn't completely spent, the limited amount means less freedom for students to choose how to spend their money around campus, as most of the money is likely to go strictly towards textbooks and class supplies. While these are not all of the problems in the new dining plan, they are some major concerns that should be addressed. I propose that the new dining plan implementation be delayed until a more serious discussion is held with a majority of the student body to gather input and hopefully come to a conclusion that can help both students and the school.
