    Richard Saker/Contour by Getty Images As we end Black History Month, here is one of my favorite poets, Danez Smith, who writes on intersectionality between their Black and Queer identities. At the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference in Kansas City, MO, I had the opportunity to personally meet Smith, and they are […]
  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings.

BGSU plans dining hall reopening, sets safety measures


The university’s dining halls, such as the Oaks, will feature several new implementations, such as reserved times for sanitation and a carry-out service.

As part of BGSU’s multifaceted return to campus plan, on-campus dining will see multiple changes for the fall semester to emphasize health and safety for students and employees.

There will be a review for all employees of safety policy regarding new guidelines for COVID-19.

Each employee will conduct a wellness check every time they go into work, including a contactless temperature check. Face coverings will be provided and are mandatory to wear at all times. Guests are required to wear a mask at all times as well, except when eating.

Behind-the-scenes cleaning procedures will occur every 30 minutes.

On-campus dining halls will include sanitizer stations in high traffic areas and educational posters about health and safety procedures. All cutlery will be pre-packaged as well as salt and pepper packets.

The Oaks and Carillon dining halls

Tossed – previously a salad bar – will be converted to an expanded dessert station that will be for full-service only. The menu will also be simplified in order to increase the speed of service. Drinks will continue to be self-serve but individual cups will be given out personally by employees. 

Takeout orders will also be an option at The Oaks. This will have a separate line at the entrance and one swipe will include a salad, entree, sides, dessert and a beverage. These will be served in microwavable containers. Takeout for Carillon will be available between 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Oaks and Carillon will be closed everyday from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. for disinfection.
