"I don't like it. I mean, the
changes are good because it gives
students more variety in what they
eat, but it is fast food and eating
on the run is never good. They
could have given us more healthful
-Rebecca Edmerson, senior pre-
"I love the a la carte system,
compared to the click system. You
can get as much as you want, take
other people to eat and there aren't
-JoAnn Stephens, senior journalism major.
"I'm very impressed with the
changes they've made in regard to
food choices. They made very good
selections; these are places where
most people eat anyway. I think it
will be a huge success,"
-Tequila Evans, sophomore
"It looks more modern, but it's also
more expensive. I feel that campus
dining at the Moody Towers has
taken advantage of the students.
For example, the prices are
outrageous for the small portions
we get. I finally wised up and
decided to go to O.B. to eat there,
where you can get more stuff for
the same amount of money that
you would spend at the Towers,"
-Cesar Alvarez, freshman communications-unspecified major.
While we were away
or just not watch
ing, the Campus
Dining Services was completely revamped to make it
seem like new again.
The American Cafe
went through remodeling and
emerged with new features.
Added on was an Allegro
Pasta Bar that made fresh
pasta with a rotating selection of fresh sauces. Chick-
Fil-A and Whataburger were
also new in the cafe.
The deli corner still
served sandwiches and pastries, ice cream, frozen yogurt
and flavored coffee. Coog's
Cafe was still a mainstay in
the UC with burgers, curly
fries, chili dogs and fresh
The Satellite also
underwent changes to better
serve students: joining Pizza
Hut Express was a Taco Bell.
The Quadrangle Cafeteria in OB Hall was back as
the only All You Can Eat location on campus. The Grill
was again open until 4 p.m.
The Wokery was also open
with delicious and healthy
The biggest change
was that of the Towers Cafeteria. It was remodeled to
include a Pizza Hut Express
and Blimpie Sandwich Shop.
It also had Cafe Features,
Grill Works and a convenience store. The Cafeteria
operated on an a la carte system; you only paid for as much
as you ate.
Huguley, a psychology major, said, "I think it benefits
the students because they can
buy more things. We weren't
told specifics about the system; they should have given
us a guide to let us know
whether we were on track or
"Sometimes the prices were
too high: like one dollar for a
can of juice," Huguley said.
Freshman elementary education major Tracy
Simien was asked if she expected the dining services to
be like this. "No," she responded, "but I like it. It's
good that there's a variety of
food that we can choose from."
