Minnesota Student Association requests longer dining hours during finals

The request is for the university to open all campus dining halls and restaurants at 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 17.

MINNEAPOLIS—The Minnesota Student Association unanimously passed a resolution Wednesday urging the University of Minnesota’s University Dining Services to open all campus restaurants and dining halls as early as 6 a.m. Saturday during finals week.

Final exams are scheduled Saturday, May 17, starting at 8 a.m. this semester, but no UDS locations will be open early enough for students to eat before their tests. Research has shown that breakfast boosts academic performance, so MSA’s resolution wants UDS to provide an option for early-morning meals.

For many students living on campus, dining halls may be their only option for meals.
