Letter to the editor: Panel values student input on dining plans


To the Editor:

Dining is an important part of student life at the University, and we understand that students feel strongly about their choices.


That’s why the Board Plan Review Committee has been working for two years to develop recommendations for campus dining options that meet the diverse needs of undergraduates. We’ve been listening to students throughout the process and continue to do so.

The draft document that was the subject of a Daily Princetonian article on Thursday highlights some — but not all — of the recommendations the committee has developed.

We are eager to share more about our recommendations with students and continue to gather their feedback.

The committee is holding three focus groups on the recommendations next week. For information, visit the committee’s website,

On the site, students can also review an updated draft of the recommendations — which include plans for a reduced-cost option for co-op members — and submit feedback.

We look forward to hearing from you.
