Barbara’s Place has been the alternative to Davenport Dining Hall for many students, especially commuters. Currently, students are upset over the lack of options since Barb’s has eliminated its daily specials. Say goodbye to all of your favorites and embrace the taqueria every day except Wednesdays, which are now strictly for Mongolian food.
Students are fed up with what and how they are being fed.
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.
I read with interest the well versed comments about how easy it is to “sneak into” Davenport by having someone open the back gate.
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.
