Campus Connection Interview with Christen Flowers
For our very first episode of Campus Connection: A Carolina Housing Podcast, we invited the Director of Dining, Christen Flowers, to chat with us! We got a glimpse behind the curtain of how Carolina Dining Services plans and decides on new food options for students, and got some insider information on what new restaurants and food shops are coming soon to UNC!
If students have thoughts or opinions on what dining options they would like to see on campus, they can join the Student Dining Board. The Student Dining Board is a student group that meets weekly during the academic year to discuss anything related to the food program at UNC Chapel Hill. The board includes members from RHA, Student Government, Graduate and Professional Students, At-Large members and key staff members from Dining, Student Affairs and Housing. This opportunity allows students to have a voice in the decision-making process of selecting food concepts.
If students aren't able to join the Board, they can attend focus groups to share their thoughts, or just reach out to CDS directly through social media or their website!
To learn more about how CDS operates and about what new food concepts are coming to campus, listen to the full episode wherever you get your podcasts!
