Panthers’ Den Update

Dear Adelphi Community,

Now that the Panthers’ Den Dining Hall has been open for a full school week, we are pleased to report that the community’s overall feedback has been positive. We have heard that you enjoy the temporary dining hall’s atmosphere, location, service and many of the options being served.  

We have also heard some constructive feedback and want to assure you that we are aware there is room for improvement. We are thankful for your input on how we might enhance the dining experience for our community members and are currently planning some solutions for the coming days and weeks. Also, the menus in the Panthers’ Den will continue to evolve based on feedback. Our Dining Services team is currently working hard to compile and address all your input, and we will share a more detailed update on feedback and solutions being implemented next week. 

The Student Government Association (SGA) and Resident Student Association (RSA) leadership have been enormously helpful in sharing meaningful input on behalf of the Adelphi student body. We are grateful for their insight and the time they have taken to share it with us.

We hope you will continue to communicate with us about your Panther’s Den experience and other concerns or questions as the renovation of the Ruth S. Harley University Center progresses. We are always monitoring emails sent to Thank you again for your patience and honest engagement.
