Students upset over new on-campus dining hours

Students with night classes are out of luck for late-night meals with the new 8 p.m. closing time.

Sept. 19—After a long day of classes during the first week of school, Yessid Ceballos tried to go into the Busch Dining Hall one night at 8:05 p.m. and was told it was closed.

Ceballos, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore, said he was told the dining hall hours had been changed this year, and all the halls would be closing at 8 p.m. every day.

“My friends and I were told the halls closed at eight. The decision had come from higher ups,” he said. “We weren’t given a straight answer.”

On his way back to his room, Ceballos said he stopped people who were looking to go into the dining halls to inform them that the hall was closed.
