The Angelo Dining Committee on Jan. 31 hosted a meeting in the Houston Harte University Center to discuss aspects of dining services.
 During the meeting, committee members discussed the Einstein Bros. Bagels location on campus. The members want students know they are currently working on methods to ease the frustrations many students are experiencing at the location.
 Students also have outlets to ask questions or express concerns about dining services. The Dine on Campus website and the text-to-chat questions are available for students to have their voices heard.
 “The texts are anonymous, so guests can feel free to let us know if they want to see menu items or if they have a problem,” said Stacey Patterson, director of marketing and guest services.
 The residential text-to-chat number is 325-939-2820 and the retail number is 325-939-8528.
  The committee also discussed “wow cards,” which are given to dining services employees for keeping the lines moving and taking care of guests. Once a certain amount of these cards are collected, employees can redeem them for a gift card, movie tickets or half the day off.  
 “If any students see any of our associates go above and beyond, we need to give them a wow card,” Richard Gonzalez, director of dining services, said.
 Students can go to the dining services website to look at the menu and check dining location hours.
 The next meeting is on Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.
