Why this petition matters

Started by William Lefebvre

Dear Umass Lowell students, 

Dining options are limited at the moment here at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Especially on North Campus where there are currently no open dining halls that accept meal swipes (excluding the Cumnock Meal Exchange through Grubhub). Along with this, Hawk's Nest Cafe has been closed which limits students on East Campus, especially those in University Suites, with dining options. 

Opening Southwick Dining would allow North and South campus majors while on North Campus to eat with a meal swipe without having to go to UCrossing or Fox Hall on East Campus. The opening of Southwick Dining would also reduce stress on Fox Hall, UCrossing, Cumnock Hall, and The McGauvran Center during peak dining hours, such as lunch. 

Students with both limited and unlimited meal plans will benefit from the opening of both of these halls because it allows for the use of fewer Riverhawk Dollars and an increase in meal swipes. With a good percentage of tuition being a meal plan, it would be nice to have ample options to use meal swipes on all campuses.

Moreover, please sign this petition to persuade the Univerisity of Massachusetts Lowell and Aramark, our dining service provider, to re-open our dining halls (because we are being charged the same price no matter what). 

Thank you! 

Go Riverhawks!
