This school year of 2022-23 serves as the second term where Virginia Tech tries to return to normalcy post-pandemic. A current issue on life on campus has to do with the dining halls. To be efficient, dining halls have implemented more pick-up orders, rather than overcrowding the buildings with long lines. But is it quicker? And does it clear up the buildings the way it was meant to? Announced in 2019, Virginia Tech made the switch to a different online food ordering system. Like many college’s, they are now using GrubHub’s new feature called GrubHub Campus Dining.

Many students share mixed opinions on how they like to get their food. Whether it’s waiting in the lines on campus or ordering an hour ahead to beat the long wait times, some students are not too happy with the hustle and bustle of the dining halls here on Virginia Tech’s campus. On this vodcast, we interview students on their thoughts regarding wait times in their dining halls.
