Transcript Happy Valentine's Residents enjoy special dinner A couple dressed semi-formally are greeted by a hostess and seated at a nice table. A dinner salad is served to them, as well as a beverage. They enjoy a romantic meal with a courteous waiter. No, they are not in a nice restaurant. It's the Towers' cafeteria. To provide residents with a bit of a romantic Valentine's Day tr*at, the Residence Halls Association, and the building associations of the Towers and Quad cooperated to host dinner in the Towers' cafeteria and a dance afterward in the ballroom of the Quadrangle's Oberholtzer Hall. For the price of your board card, a host or hostess seated you and served you a salad. Afterwards, the dishes were cleared and you were invited to dine from the buffet. After the main course, the waiter again took care of the diners' plates then served them dessert. Beverage refills were taken care of throughout the meal. Finishing touches included complimentary pictures taken of themselves either before or after dinner and a shuttle bus between the Quad and the Towers to shuttle diners and dancers. "The dinner provided residents with a change, a change from the normal cafeteria-style dinner, to an elegant dining atmosphere where they could experience the finer cuisine of ARA," sophomore Michael Millo said. Glenn Topfer, one coordinator of the event, said he was very pleased with the attendance of about 215 people. The event was held to provide residents who could not get off campus a special evening for the holiday. "I feel we did an excellent job in the number of people we got to attend and the type of service we gave. Even if it's a benefit to just those few people who came, at least we had something for those few people to do that night," he said. Most residents really enjoyed the special treatment at dinner which lead to a party- ing mood for the dance. "I was really impressed and surprised that ARA could do something like that. It was the same old fare, but it was presented in such a way that was better than normal," sophomore Angela Cowan said. Residents enjoyed the dinner even more because it was close to home and on their board cards. ''It was a nice, cheap Valentine's Day treat," said sophomore Heather Ferguson. ► Beth A.
