To make Union more sustainable, I propose that Union College should expand dining options on campus.
I, for one, frequently visit local eateries for meals when instead I could choose to stay on campus. No, its not sustainable for me to do so, nor is it eco-friendly. But occasionally my stomach overrules the voice in my head. I get tired of the same, bland dining hall food, or of the same 12 options shared between Reamer and Rathskeller.
I think its also obvious that, compared to other schools, Union lacks a variety of dining options.
RPI, in addition to its dining hall, has a Moe’s and an on-campus pizzeria.
Cornell, according to a recent study, has nearly 30 different on-campus eateries, and ranks 5th-in the nation in terms of colleges with the best food.
Take a poll of Union students. I think the vast majority would agree that Union could stand to add some dining variety to on-campus life.
Having to seek a change of pace for a meal off-campus shouldn’t be necessary. And it sure isn’t sustainable.
