Food for Thought
Our dining survey, which will be available from October 24th through November 4th, is an annual survey in which we hope to gain some insight into what is going on at our dining halls. The dining survey can be taken in a multitude of ways, such as through our URL, which will be on our Instagram and Facebook accounts, the email link that will be sent out, or scanning the QR code at our dining hall or cafe to get to the survey.
The purpose of the survey is to provide a way for those who use our dining hall and retail locations to have a voice and let their opinions be heard. We want to use this information to know better how we can serve each person at our dining halls. Those working and preparing everything often don't have the same perspective as those enjoying the food. That is why it is imperative that we use this survey to gain information and knowledge that we may not have otherwise. We try to create a safe atmosphere with the survey by making it anonymous.
Survey users do not have to provide their names or personal information if they do not want to. If any of our survey users want to, they can include their email and name, and they will be entered into a random raffle drawing for an Amazon.com gift card.
One big thing here at Roberts that we wanted to emphasize this time is getting our survey out to our faculty as well. Many professors come to our dining hall often to eat with their peers or catch up with an old student of theirs. In past years, many of our faculty haven't known that they also have a voice we want to hear. They have been under the impression that it is mainly for our students when it is for both the students and faculty. As such, this year, we will be greatly trying to get our faculty's opinions so we can also serve them better.
Along with the survey, we use our suggestion board to hear things more often from the student body. Students can leave opinions or suggestions on our board so we can address things more quickly. Between the survey and our suggestion board, we hope to hear the student body and faculty better to provide our best possible service to them.
