Lack of variety, lagging lines and inflated prices have been some of the biggest red flags about Sage
Dining. Here are some solutions that could solve all of these problems. A diverse diet is a good diet.
However, the cafateria has few options. The only food available on campus is provided by Sage
and while the food served is above average, the menu has become very repetitive. This has caused the
menu to become dull and somewhat boring.
The first solution that comes to mind is to put some vending machines around campus. While the
inside vending machines may not be best in terms of nutrition, it would be a cheaper way to get
Another issue is the amount of time wasted waiting in line. This is a self-inflicted wound by the
student body, as the only reason the lines have been moved is to prevent stealing. However, throwing
away valuable time is unfair to those students who do not have the impulse to steal.
The best way to fix this would be to make the punishment for stealing more severe. One way to
discourage stealing could be making the students pay for their thievery, but not with lunch
detentions. Instead of working for the school during a Saturday detention, they could instead work
for Sage during the ensuing week to repay for their stolen items. The last issue that has been
discussed is the extremely high prices. While Sage Dining is unlikely to change their prices, cheaper
options should be available. Perhaps they could have two cups sizes and a thriftier combo option.
