Student Culinary Council allows students opportunity to shape dining experience

January 14, 2019

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University students have a variety of excellent dining options on campus with more than 30 locations offering diverse and delicious food and beverages.
FSU students can also shape their dining experience, learn about upcoming events and provided valued feedback through Seminole Dining’s monthly Student Culinary Council meetings.
Once a month, Florida State University students gather with Seminole Dining’s marketing team, Executive Culinary Director Travis Johnson, Dietitian Jessica Brooks and FSU administrators to learn more about Seminole Dining’s offerings and to provide feedback on the dining process.
“Our No. 1 priority is customer satisfaction,” Seminole Dining Regional District Manager John Teeple said. “The Student Culinary Council provides crucial, important feedback for us, so we can continue to expand our offerings at Seminole Dining.”
A recent on-campus survey revealed Florida State University students, faculty and staff awarded Seminole Dining a 91 percent approval rating. In the fall, Seminole Dining was ranked No. 45 in The Daily Meal’s Top 75 Best Colleges for Food in 2018.
“We’re thrilled to receive such a high approval rating and ranking, but we strive to improve each day,” Teeple said. “The Student Culinary Council helps us achieve our core mission – providing quality food and service to our valued customers.”
Student Culinary Council members often learn about Seminole Dining special events before anyone else, participate in tours of adopted farms and sample new menu items.
This month’s meeting is 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24 in the Suwannee Room’s conference center. Meetings typically last about an hour.
