Esker Dining Hall is convenient place to get a meal, if your dorm is located in UW-Whitewater’s Esker District. Meals can be purchased with university meal plans, dining dollars, or conventional currency. Once you’ve paid, you are free to unlimited helpings of whatever foods the smorgasbords hold that day, including alternative options for vegans, vegetarians, and those with gluten intolerance. Esker Dining is quick and easy, but the jury is still out on painless.

The insipid food she is talking about is provided to Esker by Chartwells, a business that is owned by Compass Groups, the largest foodservice company in the world, with operations in over 50 countries. Having sampled Esker’s food multiple times, my personal stance is that the food is…about as good as you should expect of any cafeteria.
Esker offers students more than just a meal, however. If you are a Whitewater student looking for an on-campus job, you may easily find one at Esker, where help is seemingly always in demand.
Deep in the bowels of Esker is the dish room. In this sweaty room the clinking of silverware and dishes, the drone of the dishwasher, and the hum of a conveyor of trays coalesce to form a hurricane of noise. Chances are this is where you will spend a lot of your time, if you’re a new Esker employee like Jack Gower
