ATHENS, Ohio (March 27, 2007) -- Beginning Monday, April 2, Dining Dollars will no longer be accepted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at West 82 food court and Latitude 39 in Baker University Center. During those times, they still may be used in campus dining halls. The change has been made to provide high-quality and efficient service to customers.
"The Dining Dollars program has been so successful in Baker that the demand is exceeding capacity during lunch hours," Assistant Vice President for Auxiliary Services Christine Sheets said. "We decided to limit Dining Dollars in order to better ensure the prompt, courteous, high-quality service to all patrons of the food court."
Dining Dollars was introduced in January to give meal plan holders additional flexibility and an opportunity to experience the new center. Holders of 14-, 20- and Super meal plans can spend up to $100, and 10-meal plan holders can spend up to $50 this quarter at any of the Baker dining facilities and in selected other locations. Dining Dollars is not a feature of the Block 20 meal plans.
Dining Dollars are accepted within the Baker University Center at West 82, The Front Room Coffeehouse and Latitude 39 (excluding alcohol purchases). They also are accepted at all dining halls on campus (Boyd, Bromley, Jefferson, Nelson and Shively), Boyd and Shively grab n' go locations and Nelson Restaurant.
Meal plans will end Saturday, June 9. Any remaining Dining Dollars balances will not be carried forward.
Ohio University Dining Services will continue to fine-tune the food court and other operations within Baker Center and across campus based on student consultation and feedback, and sound business practices, including high quality service and financial viability.
