News Bites – Week of Oct. 7

Pomona moves nightly snack to earlier time

Pomona College’s nightly snack, held Sunday through Wednesday at Frary Dining Hall, has been moved half an hour earlier, according to flyers posted in Frary Oct 8. It now starts at 10 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m. Previously, Pomona snack was held from 10:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Senior Associate Dean of Campus Life Frank Bedoya also sent out a school-wide email about the change Oct. 9. He noted that the change was made “to accommodate staff schedules.”

Dining Services General Manager Jose Martinez wrote in an email to TSL that he advocated for the change because he had been receiving “[complaints] from staff members that the snack [work] shift [was] the least desirable since they don’t leave [until] after midnight.”

He added that, since the change, his staff has been receiving positive feedback from students.
