Eat, Study, Sleep- Trey Controversy September 6, 2011

Posted by jordanunderwood in Uncategorized.


One of two cafeterias at the University of Iowa, Burge provides a quick way for east campus students to grab a bite before running off to class. The cafeteria provides a plethora of food ranging from pizza to salad as well as a place to relax in between classes. One aspect that has remained unchanged over the last few years is the heavy use of trays by students and members of the community in order to get more bang for their buck by stuffing as much food on their trays as possible. However, little known to the public, the student government has introduced a bill that would completely remove trays from the cafeterias in order to cut down on waste and save hundreds of gallons of water every semester. Even though the bill has been passed, the treys remain, which has sparked controversy across campus and as more people pile into the cafeterias, the trays will continue to pile up and the debate will rage on.
