Barbara’s Place and Davenport Dining Hall are filled with familiar faces, workers and students greet each other as they see each other for the second, third time a day. But a fresh new face can now be spotted, as ULV’s dining halls welcomes the new general manager of Bon Appétit, Heather Podsakoff.
Students got the opportunity to ask 15 members of administration about hot topics such as tuition increase, the parking structure for next year and food at the Pajama Power Hour town hall meeting Monday night.
In the Davenport dining hall during lunch and dinner time you will hear it. The occasionally unhappy student will moan and groan about how the food of Café Bon Appétit does not satisfy his or her hunger or taste buds.
Our spring break is only one week long, so why do the people left on campus have nowhere to eat? Both Barbs and Davenport are closed for the week, leaving the students to buy food off campus.
Students want another on campus eatery, and 10 out of 16 students asked in an informal survey think that the University community would benefit from a deli-style sandwich shop.
A typical functioning kitchen for any restaurant consists of a counter, an oven, a food station and a refrigerator. The types of food available at the establishment usually revolve around what type of equipment they have to work with, but at Barbara’s Place this is not the case.
Neither Davenport Dining Hall nor Barbara’s Place list nutritional facts about the meals offered, and many students feel their meal choice would be altered if those facts were posted.
In most universities, there are always students complaining about the food in their dining halls. At the University of La Verne, there is no exception. Complaints about flavor, preparation and lack of variety are always mentioned and sometimes worked on, but one thing that is never changing is the lack of options for vegetarians.
Inside the Campus Center during, lunch and dinner hours, students line up curving off to the left of the counter, making the small space seem hectic. But the crowd isn’t from Barbara’s Place crew not caring.
Among the changes on campus to accommodate the historically high number of traditional undergraduates, Davenport Dining Hall has undergone some renovations.
