Pages Cafe Extended Hours Pilot
Beginning Nov. 27, Pages Café Will Pilot an Evening Meal-Swipe Equivalency Program
During the busy finals preparation period, students studying in Bird Library later in the evening will have new food options to select from at Pages Cafe. From Monday through Thursday through the end of the semester, Pages will expand its operating hours to remain open until 9 p.m. In addition, from 4 to 9 p.m., the café will accept meal swipes as payment for prepackaged dinner meals.
As at Goldstein Food Hall, students with unlimited meal plans can utilize one swipe per the dinner meal period to purchase their food. Students with block plans will use one swipe of their plan to pay for the meal, which features handcrafted grab-and-go salads, sandwiches, and entrees.
A meal includes:
- A breakfast sandwich, packaged sandwich, or a packaged salad
- A smaller snack, fruit cup, or bag of chips
- A cold beverage of choice
Students can also continue to purchase a la carte snacks utilizing their Meal Plan Dining Dollars or ‘Cuse Cash, though specialty drinks will only be available through 3 p.m.
This effort grew out of student feedback, said Auxiliary Services Associate Vice President Cheryl Fabrizi.
“We heard from students that they wanted to be able to stop in, grab dinner, and go between or after their evening classes,” Fabrizi said. “Pages is a centrally-located café, and we’re excited to pilot this program to see what response we receive from students through the end of the semester.”
