Help Create the Next Dining Experience - provide your feedback at AUDITIONS!

The teams from the Student Center and Dining Services are excited to offer the campus community a chance to choose dining concepts that will be included in the future Campus Center. Each week there will be a new concept to explore and provide feedback on. 

Our next concept for your review is EASTERN BUNS, which features bao buns of various flavors including Spicy Chicken and Korean Pork Belly.  Sides include Thai Coleslaw,  Soba Noodle Salad, and Five Spice French Fries. Please fill out this survey and let us know which items you'd like to see come back in the future. We will use your feedback to decide which concepts return in the last weeks of the semester.

After EASTERN BUNS we will introduce BRUNCH BITES - stay tuned!

Did you miss your chance to review DISTRICT DOGS, our gourmet hot dog food concept? You still have time! Please fill out this survey and let us know which items you tasted and would like to see again.

Your feedback will be critical as we move forward with the re(in)novation – we want to hear from you! For questions or feedback about this part of the design process, please reach out to scinfodesk@mail.gatech.edu.

  • Showcase Georgia Tech's Accomplishments and be a Catalyst for Creative Expression
  • Foster Friendships and Bridge Across Disciplines, Cultures, and ???
  • Promote Leadership and Involvement
  • Activate the Outdoors
