Duke U. plans renvoation, new dining options

West Union renovation causes stir among students bemoaning loss of dining options

July 2 — Duke University will begin the renovation of the West Union this fall, which will mean the loss of some student dining options. But Rick Johnson, assistant vice president of student affairs for housing, dining and residence life, says the plan ultimately will mean more and better choices.

“The mission of Duke Dining is to create and facilitate community on campus by providing great healthy food, great service, and a place for students, faculty and staff to come together to break bread, talk, reflect and enjoy,” Johnson said.
