Frustrated students experience long waits at Rio Cafe. Some risk showing up late for class as a result.

Rio Hondo College opened its doors again January 30, to mark the start of the 2017 Spring semester. However, the hustle and bustle of the new semester has also created a flood of hungry students at Rio Cafe, causing some students to complain.

Food quality aside, a common complaint of Rio Cafe, many students cite understaffing to be the cause of the overcrowding problem.

“There are very little workers,” Rio Cafe patron Sharon Torres complained. “Especially [the Grill], they lag on your food.”

The Grill consists of hot food prepared on the spot, and thus can be a catalyst for long lines, and unfortunately, hungry students. However, some concerned student pose suggestions.

“Open up a couple more lines,” Marco Rivas says. [It would] help [the cafeteria] to be more efficient.”

Hopefully, as the flurry of the start of the semester dies down, so will overcrowding in the cafeteria.
