Big Brother or Concerned Mother?
Written by Bwog Staff
Dining Services can play the role of mother when needed. The question is whether or not the mother is a kind one that gives you unlimited fro-yo, or an overbearing one that tells you things you already know. A tipster too busy indulging in Chipotle to deal with lines at the Action Station sent us this e-mail of dietary admonition that will help you decide:
Our records indicate you are a current meal plan participant, however we show very little usage of your meals. Dining Services is committed to providing the community of students, faculty and staff with great dining experience. We are concerned that you are not receiving the balance diet needed to be at your healthiest. We ask that you communicate with our registered dietician, Kristie Koerner. She is here to offer individualized assistance for students with food allergies, food sensitivities, or any other food concerns.
In addition, our onsite Managers are here to help you if you have any concerns and questions.
While many people in fact eschew mandatory, parent-enforced, or fin-aid applied meal plans for healthier options, there are times when something more serious is happening. The Blue & White wrote a piece on eating disorders, on-campus treatment, and the administrative hurdles that students may encounter.
