The initiative allows students to share their food preferences through voting boxes present in this university’s dining halls.
Several first-generation students gathered at the 251 North Dining Hall on Wednesday for a dinner hosted by the university’s Residence Hall Association.
Dining services hopes the new initiatives will introduce students to new cultures and bring students together over diverse cuisines.
The new station serves halal food that is certified by the Islamic Services of America. The food is prepared and cooked on surfaces dedicated for halal foods.
Dining Services changed the dining hall’s menu this year and upgraded the smashburger and ice cream station.
The dining hall was deemed unsatisfactory in cold holding temperature and food contact and surface equipment.
The dining hall is closed on Fridays and Saturdays.
