Dining services extend hours

April 14th, 2011

Starting April 26, Java City, in the ground floor of the library will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The available food will be standard sandwiches, salads, fruit cups and parfaits along with coffee drinks and smoothies.

Beginning next semester, the Schott Dining Hall will be open at 9 a.m. for a continental breakfast. Also, The dining hall will be open until 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Java City’s new hours will make lunch more convenient to students who have class in the Dolan Science Center. It also provides an alternative to Einstein’s, which is usually busy between classes during the lunch hours.

The extended weekend hours of the dining hall will enable students to eat without having to wait until 11 a.m. for brunch to begin. The uniform closing hours will eliminate confusion as to when the dining hall closes. These extended will also allow students to eat three meals on Saturday and Sunday, rather than being restricted to brunch and dinner. This will increase the value of a meal plan because students will be able to use all of the meals they pay for that would normally be wasted.

It can be argued that a more full breakfast should be served instead of only serving continental breakfast. In addition to this, the gates to the dining hall should not close before closing time, as it is often closed preemptively.

The extended hours of Java City and the Schott Dining Hall will be convenient for the JCU community, and it will facilitate an alternative to previous meal options.
