What is Table Talk?

Table Talk is a program that allows students and faculty to provide feedback to Dining Services.

Once a semester, student managers and staff in each dining center are available during meal service to answer questions and hear your comments about our facilities and food. Guests can make a suggestion to staff or fill out a customer comment form, while entering a lottery to win $25 in Dining Dollars.

Then What Happens?

Your input is important and we regularly make changes to our menus and service model in response to student requests. For example, we’ve changed hours of operation at dining centers, increased the number of vegan and international entrees on our menus, and boosted our sustainability initiatives based on what we’ve heard at Table Talk events.

Table Talk This Year

For the Fall 2020 semester, Table Talk will be a virtual event. Unlike previous Table Talks, we will not be set up in the dining centers. Instead, students will have the opportunity to send us their feedback through a survey. The survey will be open for 48 hours to ensure everyone has time for their voice to be hear. All survey participants will be entered to win one of five $25.00 Dining Dollar vouchers.
