A new app has been launched at The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. The app’s intention is to benefit those students who dine on campus.
It’s a real-time app where you can view the daily menus and locations. In addition, there are profile statuses for faculty, staff members, and management members. There are different avenues to click on to get feedback and also you can review the calorie count for each particular item you are interested in.
Michael Piskorick, director of dining services stated that this app will definitely benefit students in a positive way. He says “It is very user-friendly, very easy to use and it’s fun. I think that in addition to our other apps (such as our Twitter, Facebook accounts) that Chartwells has for the university this is just another great addition to what we can offer.”
Alonso Turner, a UTPB freshman, shared his thoughts about the app “I mean personally, I probably won’t download it because I don’t eat here that often. But I think it will benefit other people that eat here a lot so they can know what they are eating and putting into their bodies.”
If you would like to download the free dine-on campus app, go to the app store, search for the dine on campus app and then search for the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.
