BUDS and the Student Culinary Council Working Together
The Student Culinary Council (SCC) is a team of students who act as a liaison between the Binghamton University student body and Binghamton University Dining Services (BUDS); utilizing polls, questionnaires, and surveys to take students’ opinions into account to provide a general, holistic understanding of their wants and needs. BUDS has been partnering with the SCC since 2014 allowing us to collaborate on many different projects and initiatives. Recently, we sat down with SCC President Maylin Vititow to talk about the partnership and her own experiences working with Dining Services; continue reading to hear what she had to say!
Binghamton Alum Dream Becomes A Reality at The MarketPlace
Bubble tea - a milk-based tea that originated in Taiwan in the late 1980s - has grown in popularity across the United States over the past few years, especially among the younger generations. In well-populated areas like New York City, a bubble tea vendor can be spotted on almost every block; serving up new, creative concoctions and widely loved classic flavors. New York City native and Binghamton University alum, Leighton Blackwood, was like most in that he, too, loved the refreshing beverage and had hopes of making it more accessible to students on campus. Leighton had a dream of opening his own bubble tea business, and over time, through trial and error, hard work, and perseverance, Leighton’s dream became a reality.
Nourish Your Body with BUDS
It’s easy to recognize that health and wellness is an important aspect of our everyday lives, but knowing how to nourish our bodies in a way that is both satisfying and healthful can be much harder. For students, classwork and extracurricular activities can be all-consuming, leaving them with very little time to plan out their meals and make sure that all of the necessary nutrients are accounted for in their diet - let alone know what options are available to them on campus. Thankfully, they do not have to figure it all out by themselves! Binghamton University Dining Services (BUDS) registered dietitians, Alexa Schmidt, RD, CDN, and Julie Lee, MS, RD, CDN, are available to help. We recently sat down with Schmidt and Lee to talk about the variety of health and wellness options available to students while dining on campus.
What Students are Saying about Dining on Campus
Binghamton University Dining Services (BUDS) has always been committed to providing students with a great dining experience, and this semester is no different. As the Binghamton University community continues to progress into the Fall semester, BUDS was interested in hearing what students had to say. While dining in The MarketPlace and the four Resident Dining Halls, students provided comments about dining and their experiences so far.
The BUDS Marketing Internship Experience
As an editorial intern at Binghamton University Dining Services (BUDS), I interview staff, write feature and news stories and gather information for blog posts. It has been a rewarding experience in which I learned about the professional world and grew as a person. Unfortunately, multiple BUDS interns and I will soon graduate and forge our separate paths. Each one of us is taking invaluable lessons and great memories.
