Dining Hall receives re-do
Shorter College meal ticket never smelled so good. With made-to-order subs and pasta, grilled goodies and mashed potatoes that rank right up there with grandma’s, the recently completed renovations to the dining hall include more than just a new look.
In July and early August, a complete renovation of Shorter’s dining hall took place, turning the standard campus facility into a trendy restaurant-style cafeteria. The planned renovation is an exciting change for the Shorter College community, said college president, Dr. Harold E. Newman. “The dining hall is an important part of campus life, and I believe students will be pleased with both the new look and new dining options.”
Aramark/Food Services Director Lance Moore said that students can expect more variety, more options and extended hours along with the new look. “I think the students are really going to like this redesign,” Mr. Moore said. “It’s a totally new concept and a different way of presenting things.”
One dining option that’s sure to stand out is a separate grill section that will be located adjacent to the main seating area.
In addition, the change has brought more food stations, taking the total for the cafeteria from four to six. “We now have several stations located just to the left of the main entrance that will specialize in items like home cooking, made-to-order wraps, pasta and deli sandwiches. We also have a salad bar and other options like stir-frys.
“Our hours for lunch are being extended so that we are open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. We’re hoping that the new hours will give students a better chance to fit a good lunch into their schedules.”
