There are a lot of exciting changes coming to food services we will see this year, most of which are involved with the SAC renovation. Subway moved out of the first floor of the SAC to the first floor of Davidson Hall in the spring. In its previous spot, Wendy’s is expanding to add capacity. Over the summer the second-floor Terrace Food Court was closed permanently. Chick-fil-a is moving to the first floor lobby area and will open in August. An exciting new venue is opening at the start of the school year: The MarketPlace! This will assume the previous location of the campus bookstore on the SAC West Wing first floor. The MarketPlace will feature unique food concepts found no place else on campus. Students can choose from different cuisines at individualized station, creating a variety of food options the SAC has never before seen. Each will focus on fresh preparation and include foods like burgers, veggies, sushi, and more. One station named “The Exchange” will even change cuisine menus every three weeks. I’m proud the addition will feature halal and vegetarian/vegan options. It’s a goal of mine to make sure that student dietary needs are accounted and met. I am excited to help open this new addition offered through our dining services contract with Aramark.
