the truth about dining at GW
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm just giving you my experience, my truth of the food system at G W. Without further ado, I'm gonna break this up in the three parts. The good, the bad and not the ugly because we're positive people around here Before I get in this video, I just want to say this is in no way bashing G W or their food system. These are just things that I personally believe that could be improved or things that I personally don't really like about the new system and that I like to see changed in the future, if possible. I'm very ill informed when it comes, like why things are the way they are. So you guys didn't sort of get an idea for what I've experienced with food and just like the dining plan after W. If you go here and you actually like, experienced this firsthand, let me know down the comments below what your experience is. Different if I'm crazy, if I'm actually making some sense, I just want to know. It's another videos, but G W does not have a central dining hall. We have, like one dining hall, and that's on the burn for burn kids. Like for foggy kids soup, Auggie hits come go then what? But like that's like the main food source for people on the burn who lived anyways. Jamie doesn't have like a central dining hall, in the sense, like many other colleges do, like Iran goes to one dining angle and they eat. The point of the system is like you're mostly using it for food and for like, school supplies. I don't know the exact number behind how many partners are but I know they're definitely just know that there are a lot. Okay basically, you can use your G world, swipe it at any of these places, and you're basically paying for your food That way, some of the restaurants we have here are like Panera, which is one of my favorites. Oh, that's another thing we do have, like many hubs of like, food replaces in the basement of District House was like an unofficial dining hall because we have, like, Chick fil A, um, this place called Soul, this Greek restaurant, Um, let's poke a place and a pizza place. That's like, I guess that's the closest thing you can kind of equate to like a Jew. You dining hall out by Explain that Well, if I didn't let me know, and I'll explain it further and like a description of the comments or something, So first I don't want to go into, like some of the good things about dying plants with good things about the world. Like within, like certain locations, because I feel like with an actual dining hall, they have certain hours. With this dining plan, the only constrained hours you have, like the actual business hours of, like these restaurants and stuff, which can be a both the good and bad thing because some of the restaurants do close kind of early for being in a city like a lot of restaurants closed around like nine, which for if you're a student, is kind of early. Then we'd like to get food or like a little snack in between their study sessions. Our library has extended hours, which is kind of different from like a regular Starbucks, like they close at midnight and they open up really early, like I think, 5 30 There also are some really good options on campus. It kind of features you had a budget because you do have I don't want to say only, but I must say only because this is G W. We do only have $2300 a semester, which is about 14 weeks, and by the Matthew get about, like, $19 per day to spend on food, which does sound like a lot like it does sound like a lot, but I'll get into that later of why it's actually not that much money to be spending your budgeting. We have Whole Foods and Safeway even like paying attention to elect the options that we have here. That's because one it's like D. C. And everything's really expensive here and to like a Jew road kind of like jacks up the prices a little bit. Let's say you go to Panera, right like say, you want like a sandwich a drink and I don't know you're feeling a little snack or she get like, a cookie or something to that's like 10 to $12 at least. My old sweet green there sounds like 12 $13. I don't know how people do it. I don't know if, like the salad is all you're eating the day, but like another thing I'm not too happy about is, while we do have a lot of options of food, places Tiu, we don't have a lot of right. We have, like, maybe like four or five different, like half a style foods. They're all sort of like the same kinds of food, like we don't have any like full meals like you could get like a meal. Everything sort of like a sandwich or like a soup or something like that, Like breakfast Breakfast is really good example, because I'm really big breakfast person. Uh um, Panera GHB can have, like a diner and have that underworld not even like a sit down dinner like that would be nice, like diner ish type of food that you can get to go that could, like have, like reasonable prices can, like, have the same prices of look the rest of the food here. Maybe even like a little bit more, since it's like actual, like food that would sustain you but having that option would be nice. I kind of want to give, like, some solutions or like some I don't know, I don't know, something like ad. So I'm not just complaining one thing that I could see as a kind of like I've said this before in the video. Preserve your world in to make sure you're well fed like I said, adding, like a diner like some more like filling options here. Like I said, in the beginning of you, we do have a ton and ton of great options, and we have a lot of good food here, just like the variety, and switching things up would be nice. I'm honestly not sure I like the contracts or things like that really work either cycling the restaurants in district like every couple of years, or like having more pop ups because I know they did have a few public's last semester. Just seeing, like some new food options on there got me very excited, especially especially when they have, like, bubble tea down their bubble tea on Jiro. Another thing I'm not really too sure about is making options little bit cheaper. No one got like offended, really, but hurt or anything? Like I said before, this is just like my opinion on Debbie dining. You already know, like the video town post notifications and all that. Make sure if you haven't already toe follow me on Instagram and on Twitter Emergency and at our underscore r e w B r ob to keep up with me and to see some fire pictures on my instagram and some crazy thing Not crazy early, that interesting like some crazy things on Twitter that's gonna be it.
