Ithaca College hosted an open forum to discuss Dining Services concerns with the campus community March 4 in the Klingenstein Lounge.
A petition circulating social media calling for changes to Ithaca Colleges dining practices has garnered over 500 parent and student signatures in recent weeks.
Though the Terrace Dining Hall at Ithaca College underwent major renovations this year, it has experienced new problems with staffing and operations. Jeffrey Scott, Sodexo area general manager, said attendance in the dining hall has been up about 10 percent so far this semester, which he said could be attributed to the renovations. However, the dining hall experienced a shortage of student employees and is also missing a chef manager.
