  1. Dinning Hall on East Campus

    If you were to build a dining hall on east campus I believe more students would purchase dining plans and also if there were to be a second floor hang out area such as the crows nest or a east campus "starbucks" it could facilitate a growing community for upper class students who may otherwise withdraw from involvement.

      Shelbi,

      Thank you for your suggesiton! I have contacted the CNU fellows to set up a meeting to discuss about your big idea! The Crow’s Nest was created by the CNU fellows so hopefully we can get this idea into a reality. I will let you know what I find out and what the way forward might be.

    • Einsteins needs to be revamped

      I have worked as a Barista before and those who work at Einstein's are horrible. They are rude, slow, and do not know how to make a majority of their own menus drinks. I literally heard them say that they just "bs whenever they get that order." Additionally, their coffee and expresso is burnt and left sitting there all day and completely overpowers whatever else is in the cup. All the lattes taste the same. All the baked goods are tough, and undercooked. As well as the food. When the staffers are on their shift they talk to each other…

      • RA's Should get to pick the meal plan they get.

        Not many people eat every meal in the dining halls. And its not fair that RA's have to have the 19 meal plan with no dining dollars. All of the 10, 14, and 19 meal plans cost the same so why do RA's have to have the 19?

        • Commons needs buffalo sauce dispensers like Regattas

          Commons needs to have the big buffalo sauce dispensers like Regattas. This buffalo sauce inequality is a travesty.

          • Nutrition Facts

            There's no readily available information about the dining hall's nutrition in their meals.

                • Set up a system for us to give feedback on dining hall meals!

                  Sometimes I really love the way they cooked a meal a certain way on a particular day or certain item I'd love to see more of and I'd love to be able to express that to the dining hall staff.

                  • Dining dollars

                    We need more variety of options to use dining dollars. For example, a smoothie bar or salad place!

                      • More vegetarian alternatives

                        the day I get to have a buff chick wrap with vegan chicken will be the day I feel like I really am a CNU student. More transparency on ingredients in foods would also be helpful. I've definitely got food in the dining halls and it secretly had meat in it.

                        • More Dining Dollar option! Or at least keep bistro open later than 3pm

                          Eating the same food is getting boring! I think opening another coffee shop and some more side restaurants. Schools like JMU and Tech set up carts all over campus that sell food and accept Dining Dollars.

                          • SUPER SIMPLE- Einsteins Menu on Captains app. Please. It used to be. Now it's not.

                            It'd be way more convenient to know what my options are without having to awkwardly walk up to the menu. Plus it's super easy.

                              • Second Coffee Machine

                                There should be a second, maybe even third, coffee machine in Commons. At breakfast the coffee line can get really long and it is annoying to not be able to get your coffee in the morning. More coffee machines would easily solve the problem.
