  • New Durable Signage for CompactorsNew Durable Signage for Compactors

    Campus Dining worked with Campus Operations and Maintenance to develop new signage for the compactor and recycling program. The new durable signage replaces laminate signs that needed to be replaced frequently. The signage is in both English and Spanish to make sure all trained staff can make sure they are following the established procedures and using the equipment properly and safely.

    On Friday, October 30, 2015, maintenance of the hood exhaust systems in the West Side Dining kitchen's cooking areas occurred including duct work that extends to fan blowers on the roof, cleaning of all five exhaust units and installation of twenty-four access panels that will make future cleanings easier and more thorough for efficient and safe food service operations.

  • Jasmine


    The rear hallway off the kitchen was bare concrete. We had it epoxy coated.

  • West Side Dining Hood Project

    As most customers probably noticed, the exhaust hoods over the grills at Bob's BBQ and International Market are not functioning well. Exhaust of smoke is slow and the hoods' grease filters are not properly draining.

  • Safety Warden Training

    Safety Warden Training

    West Side Dining is the only stand alone dining facility on campus. As such, it has to take on much of the responsibility for on-site facility management and this extends beyond food services. Campus Dining managers recently participated in the University’s Safety Warden training. During emergencies, campus dining managers can now respond in a manner that will safeguard customers and staff until University emergency support services arrive.

  • Trash Compactors

    Trash Compactors at Dining Facilities

    On Tuesday, September 30, Campus Dining held a training on the proper use of trash compactors at dining facilities. The proper operations of these compactors helps keep our facilities clean and pest free and also provides an opportunity to train staff on up to date best practices for the safe operations of these large pieces of machinery.

  • Union Deli A/C

    New Air Conditioners in the Union Deli

    The FSA recently purchased brand new air conditioners for the Union Deli. This new equipment will ensure that the air temperatures throughout the Union Deli will help Campus Dining maintain all the food product at the correct temperatures throughout day. This compliments the recent purchase of new refrigeration equipment in the Union Deli that keeps the grab-n-go and deli products at safe temperatures as well. Together, these new equipment purchases allow our customers to feel confident that the food they are purchasing is being kept ready and safe at all times.

  • West Side Dining Blinds

    New Blinds in West Side Dining

    When West Side Dining was designed, the morning sun rising over Nobel Halls was not accounted for and was causing a big distraction to staff and customers at breakfast time in Corner Cafe. FSA has installed remote control blinds on the upper windows to resolve this problem.

  • Corner Cafe

    Resurfaced Condiment Stand at West Side Dining's Corner Cafe

    The tray rails at the condiment stand at Corner Cafe were resurfaced and smoothed out to enable customers to safely rest their drink on a flat surface.

  • West Side Dining Salad Bar

    West Side Dining Salad and Soup Bar Size Change

    Those who used the fresh self-serve soup and salad bar at West Side Dining probably noticed that it was impossible to reach salads, dressings and soups towards the back. When the salad bar was originally constructed, the contractor inadvertently made it too wide. Over the summer, FSA implemented a replacement countertop to the salad bar for easier customer access.

  • Traditions Lounge
