From the Archives: Dartmouth Dining in 1989

Twenty-six years ago this Friday, student assembly president Scott Sims ’89 was quoted in the pages of The Dartmouth criticizing the Committee on Student Life’s newly proposed changes to student dining plans. Sections of the article, authored by David Fredericks ’92, show its age —first year students now spend quite a bit more on their dining plans than the $775 they were expected to contribute under the 1989 proposed plan, for example. But it’s hard not to find something familiar in complaints against dining at the College — plus, they didn’t even have a stir fry station!
