Student Senate members congratulated those who won in the elections at the Feb. 10 meeting.
Also at the meeting, Marty Johnson, Wartburg’s director of dining services, discussed worker shortages and supply chain issues at the Feb. 10 Student Senate meeting.
Johnson began by discussing how this year, like last year, has been a challenging year for dining services. The supply chain issues nationwide have led to shortages in the Mensa, and a lack of student workers have forced the Den to close on Saturday and Sunday nights.
Even with these issues, Johnson said that dining services are trying their best to bring unique items to students. He said ideas to start in the fall include more vegan and international options to the Mensa daily.
The meeting continued after Johnson’s discussion with a few reminders to students about upcoming events.
President Connor Moore urged students to apply for residential assistant and orientation leader positions. Those applications are due Feb. 25.
Executive Assistant for Diversity Carrington Bush said the Peace Dialogue is Tuesday, Feb. 15, at 11:30 a.m. in the Buckmaster classroom in the Whitehouse Business Center.
Administrative Ombudsperson Butler announced that the area behind the Manors will be renovated soon.
