My question tonight concerns the university’s food service -What was the cafeteria experience pre-COVID? Were students allowed to eat as much as they wanted with each meal ticket? Our son and his roommate are telling us that they are not getting enough to eat. The packaged food that they get with each meal ticket, with no seconds allowed, is not enough food for growing young men. That necessitates them having to constantly leave campus to supplement their food intake, which also increases their exposure to the potential of the virus in the community. What adjustments can the university make in order to provide a more substantial meal to the students so that they can stay healthy and be better able to concentrate on their classes?

I've been hearing some about starting classes On Campus soon. What is the latest on that?
Travis & Stephanie Guse
17:29
second question _Also, another cafeteria issue to address - allowing students to pick up food for their roommates or friends can make life a lot easier for those students whose schedules may not allow them the flexibility to go the cafeteria during the food service times. For example, music major students have rehearsals and private lessons that may be scheduled during meal times that would mean they have to forgo eating which is not a good thing. We would appreciate the university addressing this and provide some solutions to better serve their students.

I agree with Travis and Stephanie regarding dining concerns. Male athletes are not receiving enough food and are supplementing with food purchased off campus.

Just wanted to give feedback about the check in process - everyone was welcoming and the process went smoothly. Really appreciated the process. Thank you!

Travis & Stephanie Guse

our son and his roommate are not even athletes - they are just hungry, growing young men;-)
Jennifer Sedgwick

My daughter's perception is that most social events are happening Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Is that correct, or just her perception? She has class Tuesday and Thursday night, and feels she is not connecting.

and hours of operation as well of the cafeteria.
Beth Hawkins

yes. Megan is hard to understand.
Lara Dyer

If a student (living off campus) has an in-person class followed shortly by a class that is not offered in-person (due to instructor choice) will good wireless internet and work space be available on campus for that student to attend their following class?
