Outlook on the hUB for Spring 2012 semester

As the second week of the semester is almost over with and everyone is settled in, the staff at Sodexo dining services have been hard at work in order to make the spring semester a successful experience for UB students. Many new menu items have been added and several improvements have kept the hUB running fluently.

When the hUB opened its doors last Sept. 22, the idea was for Sodexo to try and get accustomed to having a main area on campus for students to eat and relax in a convenient central location rather than in different locations including Knight's End Cafe, which was located in the Student Center.

Sodexo Resident Dining Supervisor Corey Baker said that the new changes being incorporated will benefit the student body.

"Right now, you can get anything you want in here that you got in Knight's End before," Baker said. "We took the student's advice [on what items they wanted], put it in there and it's here."

Some of the new menu items that are being offered consist of Jamaican beef patties, chicken tenders, grilled cheese and mozzarella sticks.  Bagged candy has also been another top selling item. The hUB is now offering more weekly specials at Grill 155 with more options such as shrimp and sauteed items. Another possibility is that different sandwiches may be offered at Star Ginger down the line.

Richard Groves, a Sodexo food service supervisor, said that the hUB will operate on many different levels in order to run smoothly.

"I am going to change up the menu by having more varieties and we are going to think of ways to embrace the commuter students with the way they are going through things economically," Groves said. "As we go along, things will get better for everyone."

 Baker said that he will be available for students to be able to talk to him on Wednesday nights from 9-10 P.M. and voice their concerns or opinions about how they feel about the hUB in general. He mentioned that the grill was the most visited station last semester.

"Our three main cooks at Knight's End, Tisha, Bill and Angel have given the student's excellent customer service and I think they should expect more great things with a variety of food this year," Groves said. "Come and eat and enjoy the food."
