Eat & Greet

The Dining Advisory Board (DAB) has a new initative which seeks to encourage students to put down their phones and engage with new people during meal periods, specifically at Hill. Members of the DAB, Class Board of 2022, and the Hill House Council will be in the dining café promoting the program this week 

Students who may be dining alone or in a small group, can grab a stanchion at the cashier station and place it where they are sitting which signals other students that they are welcome to join them.  The hope is that more students engage with each other during meal periods, as well as fostering a greater sense of community within the dining café.
