Four Western Michigan University students who eat in the Valley cafeterias say that the hours and the food selections are too limited, and the employees are discourteous.

Justin Sanders, 18, an accounting major at WMU, voiced his distaste of the hours, which are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekends.)

“Why does the café close so early on the weekends? We are grown as hell!” said Sanders.

Larry Johnson, 22, a business major at WMU, disagrees with the limited food selection.

“They should have a bigger selection of food and condiments. It’s too repetitive. They have the same stuff every other day,” said Johnson. Johnson described how tired he is of the same stale burgers for lunch and the hard pancakes in the morning.

“It should at least be freshly cooked!” said Johnson.

Dakia Tinsley, 20, a pre-med major at WMU, feels the workers aren’t doing their jobs well enough.

“Some of the workers are too unfriendly and it seems like they slack… the cups and spoons be having smudges on them too; it’s just nasty,” said Tinsley.

Ollie Wilkie, 19, a physical therapy major at WMU, summed up his dislike for the system’s lack of food.

“It seems like this system is set up for middle-schoolers. I do a lot of my eating late, and this carryout isn’t enough for me,” said Wilkie. Wilkie is referring to the late night dinner system in which students receive a bag of chips a sub, a piece of fruit, and a drink.
