Seagram said the changes are a model for the Division of Student Affairs to potentially follow in the residence halls.

“We’re all trying to meet the needs of students as best as we can as the chances present themselves,” Seagram said.

Kinesiology junior Alexandra Putich said she never buys food from Union vendors because they aren’t particularly accommodating to her nutrition needs.

“I’m gluten free ... so I know they don’t serve those options here,” Putich said. “If they accommodated those kinds of things I’d be more likely to eat here.”

LSA senior Ryan Marina said he eats at the Union about once every two months, but he would be interested and more likely to eat there if ethnic food were available.

“I mainly get the feel that it’s fast food down here,” Marina said. “Maybe something else would spice it up.”
