New cafeteria signs cost money, help students

Diners will have no problem navigating their way through the cafeteria thanks to the new signs posted in the dining hall during fall break.

Tanya Sieber, assistant director of dining services, said the goal was to have the new signs in the cafeteria before the start of the school year, but the funding was not approved in time.

The total cost of the signage was $900.

“The signs will serve the future students and groups who are visiting campus and don’t have a clue where to go in the cafeteria, without us having to stand out there like traffic directors,” Sieber said.

Since the cafeteria has gone trayless, Sieber said the dining staff has rearranged a lot of the food stations to make it more convenient for diners. She said the signs make it easier to find things, such as the baked potato bar, when the room is full of people.

“We want the dining hall to be more user-friendly,” Sieber said.
