  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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?

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

  5. We need to name a study area, reading room or waffle station after the amazing Miss Virginia. The sweet lady who make everyone delicious omelets in the morning. If you don’t know who this is or disagree please drop out now…..

    More about the special lady herself: https://blogs.cnu.edu/2013/11/miss-virginias-omelets/

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

  7. Instead of creating plans for swipes per meal per day, allow three swipes per person per day and at the end of the semester or year, charge student for what they used.

  8. We think that the Chick-Fil-a Express on campus in the DSU should definitely serve sweet tea like a normal Chick-fil-a. CNU is seriously lacking in good sweet tea and it is upsetting that we have to go off campus to get some quality sweet tea.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Why don't we have normal to go cups in the dining halls????? If you want to get a drink to go from either of the dining halls then you have to use a coffee cup!!! We have to go boxes, why don't we have to go cups....?

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

  14. If there were 4 industrial blenders in regs where the new salad bar is, we could have smoothies or milkshakes. I feel like this would be a good way to use the unwanted bananas and other fruit.

  15. 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.
