Student Advisory Committee

Students who serve on the Dining Services’ Student Advisory Committee have a voice in decisions that affect the quality of student life. This committee of 20 or fewer students meets every three weeks with Dining Services directors and other staff members to provide suggestions, advice, and feedback regarding dining facilities, policies, programs, services, and staffing. The administration takes recommendations made by this committee seriously and often acts on the committee’s input immediately.

Past projects the Student Advisory Committee helped develop include the Flex plan, sustainable dining options, D2 at Dietrick Hall, West End Market at Cochrane Hall, and Turner Place at Lavery Hall designs and names, menu item selection, and much more.

Early each fall semester an email invitation is sent to all Virginia Tech students who have a dining plan asking them to consider applying to the Student Advisory Committee.

To be eligible for consideration, a student must live on campus and/or have an active dining plan, be available to attend in-person meetings, and be genuinely interested in providing input on dining issues.
