The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh took another step April 29 toward bringing a new dining option into Reeve Marketplace. The Reeve Advisory Council, which is comprised of students, faculty, staff and alumni and recommends policy and strategic direction for Reeve Memorial Union, voted in favor of investigating alternative options that might include an Asian-themed eatery.
“The decision made by RAC is an example of shared governance at its best,” said Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Petra Roter. “We know students are excited about having a new option for dining in Reeve Marketplace and are pleased to be able to pursue another dining alternative for our students that will include a variety of options, including vegan and vegetarian meals.”
Reeve Marketplace primarily serves students living in the residence halls.
The next step in the process is for the University to finalize details for bringing a new dining venue to campus before the fall semester.
“A variety of factors are considered when determining which franchise to bring to campus,” said Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services Tom Sonnleitner. “Among those are sustainability, meal price point, cost of construction, labor and other operational costs, and the product mix in the Marketplace.”
