While winter continues to bring cold weather, Sage is cooking up something hot in the Dining Hall.

On Thursday, January 25, Williston’s SAGE Dining Commons announced they would be holding a contest on campus.

The contest consisted of allowing students to review their meals on “The Touch of Sage” application. The student with the most reviews before February 9th would win a complementary dinner of choice with three friends, cooked by Executive Chef Eric Percy.

Assistant Food Service Director Chris Couchon, said that he and the dining hall staff wanted to help students realize that they have the power to change the menu with the Touch of SAGE app.

“We wanted to continue to raise awareness about the Touch of SAGE mobile app and how important a tool it is to plan and really enjoy your meals,” Couchon explained.

“I really hope that word gets out that this app gives every person who downloads and uses it a direct line of communication to us,” he added. “Using it will have a direct impact on what you see on your plate in the future. It’s an incredible resource for you and for us.”

Couchon and the rest of the dining hall staff thought that having a contest would be a great way to debut the app and to allow students to choose their food while making it a fun competition.

“We rebuild the menu three times a year, and your comments and feedback are the most valuable information we could possibly have in that process,” Couchon said.

The fact that only students can participate in the contest is because students are always busy around campus, Couchon said. He and the dining hall staff wanted to do something special for the students and reward them for their constant hard work.

“I want you to be happy and have fun while here and make sure that you leave satisfied,” he said. “I truly believe that your participation is a key factor in that. You all have so much going on all the time. You deserve to be able to kick back, relax, and eat something amazing.”

Logan Geisness ’18 claimed that this contest is be a great way to engage the student body.

“It is really beneficial to Sage because if they were to ask the student body for reviews, straight up, then they [the students] probably wouldn’t be interested,” Logan said. “So the fact that they have a contest will definitely make it easier to get reviews for their food.”
