Fair meal plans are not on the menu
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Students are fed up with what and how they are being fed. Purchasing a meal plan is mandatory for students who live on campus, which is nothing radical, but students at the University of La Verne are sick of being forced to pay large amounts of money for meals they do not use and do not always want. At the beginning of this school year, students...

Take dining comments seriously

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. “Oh…this is gross, I can’t eat this,” one student said. Other students just bash the food while it sits on their plates untouched. “The chicken is so dry, it is like sandpaper... 

Dining hall should remain open

Dining hall should remain open
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Over spring break, many students who live on campus stayed in housing for the break for different reasons. Many athletes involved in spring sports stay as do other students who live far away and cannot afford to fly home. 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,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read with interest the well versed comments about how easy it is to “sneak into” Davenport by having someone open the back gate (“Too easy to eat free at Davenport,” Nov.1).

<i>Commentary</i>: Vegetarians are people, too
Veronica Orozco, News Editor 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.

As a vegetarian, I know the struggles of... 

Food service workers, unite

Food service workers, unite
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Some Bon Appétit employees have complained that they feel pressured to work before and after clocking in. It is illegal and unethical to make an employee work for free. If claims made by Bon Appétit employees are true and they wish to organize a vote to form a union, then we support them. The employees are tired and say they have asked management for the right... 

Time to give Barb’s a chance

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. Outside of the prepackaged yogurts and sandwiches, Barb’s cooks up a small amount of Mexican-American food, each item Bon Appetit claims is organic and locally grown. It tastes good and the...
