Ithaca College students can now use Bomber Bucks to purchase food and nonfood items on campus, regardless of whether or not they have meal plans.
Four students attended an open forum to offer feedback about the change in meal service providers hosted by Ithaca College Dining Services Oct. 15.
While the new dining services have the potential to revolutionize dining on campus, with that also comes the risk of worsening the program.
The event included a panel of representatives from the college that discussed the future of Dining Services and addressed concerns brought up by the students.
Moving forward, Dining Services should extend this initiative to all dining halls and keep these anti-contamination areas open during all hours.
A new area located in the Campus Center Dining Hall opened at the beginning of Spring 2019 to provide a way for students with food allergies and intolerances to safely eat in the dining hall.
Ithaca College Dining Services has shown improvement, while many local Ithaca restaurants have committed critical violations with the Tompkins County Health Department.
