With the appointment of the new Managing Director David P. Davidson, the Campus Services leadership has decided to change the name of Harvard University Hospitality and Dining Services (HUHDS) to Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS), said Michael D. Conner, the spokesperson for Harvard Campus Services.

HUDS is actually the group's original name before it added the extra H—for Hospitality—last year to reflect the broader role of creating "great food and experiences that foster friendship, encouraging learning, and cultivating community," according to an explanation that was printed on dining hall table tents in late August last year.

The Crimson could not get a comment on the reason behind the name change.
