Transcript Here is your Change! A hungry student gets a sweet treat at the Ritazza Cafe. The cafe was the only place in a five mile radius to get Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Photo by Kena Alvarado Hold the Mustard! With all the hustle and ,bustle of the UC at lunch time, its a wonder that the employees get all those orders right. Those hard workers deserve three cheers. Photo by Kena Alvarado Red Bull to go Please! Students stop off at the StopGap for a snack on the go. And with the Satellite closed, it was also the only place on campus to buy cigarettes, i Photo by Kena Alvarado Six Coffees Please! A student orders an early lunch at the UCs Ritazza. The hole-in-the-wall coffee shop provided a gourmet venue for all those sleepy coffee lovers. Photo by Kena Alvarado The Way to Lunch! Lunchers stop by a lonely Subway station for a quick sandwich. With the Satellite closed for the fall semester, these random snackeries popped up 'everywhere. Photo by Kena Alvarado Just when incoming freshmen students thought they had escaped high schools cafeteria food, they came across UH s food venues. Cathy Orellana, a sophomore Biology major said she disliked campus food when she first arrived to UH but she developed a taste for it and now she misses the Satellite. Students returning to campus for the fall semester found that the devastation of Tropical Storm Allison had destroyed the UC Satellite completely - it was closed until the spring semester of 2002. It was temporarily replaced by the Back Porch, a facility located in the breezeway • of the Technology Annex, which offered staple food items until the Satellite reopened. "Chartwells, (the official food service vendor) was not doing the program to receive profit. Instead, we were providing a service to UH students. Our revenue was $600 to $700, which was not very much," said Nick Iula, Chartwells Resident District Manager. Junior Psychology major Adelina Longoria said, "I have tried everything there is on campus." After sampling the food at the Back Porch, Longoria decided it was too expensive to buy regularly. "The prices are similar to the ones throughout campus," said Iula. "The University should cater prices for students," said Longoria. "They are not reasonable for what you get." Longoria went on to say that while the Satellite used to serve good sandwiches, they still did not beat the ones served at the UC. And for cheap food on campus, there was no substitute for Taco Bell. Horizons, located in the Moody Towers, featured an array of Mmmm.. .Pringles! This student chooses a vending machine snack. The vending machines here could be tricky to operate, demanding everything from exact change to perfectly crisp dollar bills. Photo by Kena Alvarado This Is Express? Students wait in line at high noon at the Chick- Fil-A in the UC. As far as speed, Chick-Fil-A had the other UC restaurants beat. It really was an express eatery. Photo by Kena Alvarado 14/ Student Life food venues which catered to dorm residents. The Conrad Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management housed Eric's Restaurant. Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Erics presented the International Dinner Series, which featured a variety of different themes and cuisines. In short, the dining services provided by the University's campus were loved by some, hated by others, yet necessary to all. Story by Jackie Gil.
