Dissatisfied with the dining experience at Siena?
Some students would say “yes.” That’s not to say that there aren’t redeemable qualities or dishes that students love. However, how many students are upset with the choices? If you’ve had these same thoughts and feelings, then the Dining Committee is the right group to join!
Student Government conducts different committees each year, and it has decided that a Dining Committee is needed for open communication between Chartwells and the students.
“We want to open lines (of communication) between Chartwells and the students,” said Gabby Beveridge, vice president of Student Government and the student chair of the Dining Committee. “They haven’t been super understanding of the students’ needs in the past, and so we’re hoping they can understand better.”
While Beveridge brought up the idea of this committee to Student Government in early October, not much has come from it yet. According to Beveridge, the committee was getting details in order, like which senators would serve on the committee. There are two senators from each class who serve on Student Government and two at-large senators. Their responsibility as a senator is to attend all the town hall and allocation meetings, as well as serve on one committee.
While there are five senators who committed to serving on this committee, only one person has really been responding with Beveridge. They were scheduled to meet as a committee this past week to go over structure, an advertising plan and ideas for Chartwells. She said they hope to talk with an actual representative from Chartwells next week.
This year, Chartwells has a new director, and he has had previous experience with many different schools.
Beveridge said Chartwells is “very open” and thinks it may have ideas for improving the dining service and experience.
