Cost of stolen dining hall dishware adds up at University of Michigan
Dining halls offer more than meals to college students: They're also places where a cup, fork or plate could seem to be in easy supply.
According to a recent story in the Michigan Daily, students who took those items and other dining hall dishware cost the University of Michigan a lot of money last year.
In the last fiscal year, U-M spent about $40,000 replacing dishware that went missing or broke, according to the Daily report.
Who pays for that? University officials underscored that it's the student on meal plans.
