Did anyone really eat there anyway?
Written by Bwog Staff
In other news, Wien residents awoke to a cordial email from Housing & Dining today, apologizing for the shut-down of the building’s food court. In its place, Health Services and friends are moving into the arena (perhaps adding to the onslaught of mental institution jokes about the building).
As a gesture of reconciliation, Dining Services is offering Wien residents “$5 FREE DINING DOLLARS” to use on campus at their favorite venues. The email also states that the typical sandwich at Cafe 212 costs $5.95. At least there’s the candy corn?

Dear Wien Resident,
As you know, the Wien Food Court has closed. Construction has begun in that space to accommodate the relocation of several Health Services Departments, Alice! Health Promotion Program, Administration, and Insurance. This move, scheduled for early next year, will result in service improvements for students: additional examination and consultation rooms will be added to the 3rd and 4th floors of John Jay, creating more same-day appointments, as well as confidentiality; the new configuration of the insurance department will also create more privacy. Additionally, the Office of Disability Services will become much more accessible by moving from the 8th floor of Lerner, which is not ADA-compliant, to the 7th. This will give Counseling and Psychological Services room to add more private exam space.
At Dining Services, we understand your need for convenient daily sustenance, so we’re giving you, Wien resident, $5 FREE DINING DOLLARS to try at your favorite campus dining location.
If you want something nearby, look no further than Lenfest Cafe, right next door on the second floor of Greene Hall. It offers a great seating area, chef-prepared sushi, and daily specials, such as hamburgers and chicken sandwiches straight from the grill! Lenfest Cafe welcomes undergraduates and Dining Dollars.
If you are really missing the Food Court, don’t despair – the Mill Korean has been relocated to Mudd’s Carleton Lounge. The hot lunch buffet is only 38 cents an ounce!
And new this year at Cafe 212 – get your salad or sandwich made-to-order with an unlimited choice of toppings at a fixed price of $5.95 for sandwiches and $6.50 for salads.
To get your $5 FREE DINING DOLLARS, simply visit the Customer Service Center in 118 Hartley Hall, Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm. Offer expires Friday, October 5, 2007. Plus, if you purchase $100 or more Dining Dollars while you’re there, you’ll get an additional 10% in FREE Dining Dollars!
