EDITORIAL: More transparency needed on cafeteria issue
City College officials must do a better job at keeping the student body informed.
City Times Editorial Board
For three years City College students have hungered for a cafeteria due to limited food options. Many spring 2019 graduates will leave without ever setting foot in the City College cafeteria, which had been promised to them as far back as fall 2018.
As the City Times continued to report on the construction of new buildings on campus, the staff received emails from students asking when the cafeteria would open and why they did not see more coverage of the issue.
After months of receiving misinformation, counting down to what turned out to be missed deadlines and fielding rumors that wouldn’t be confirmed, the City Times can finally report the cafeteria will not open until fall 2019.
