Students who have a tight budget may want to enter a contest to rename the main cafeteria. A $100 dining card will be awarded to the winning entrant.
Jennifer Bruder, the food service director for Chartwells, which manages all the food services on campus including the main cafeteria and the eatery in the Sanctuary, came up with the idea for the contest after seeing the current name for the cafeteria, the Main Cafe, and finding it to be quite boring.
“We decided to let the students pick the name because one of the big engagements at this school is the student body,” Bruder said.
Students can enter the contest by writing down their name idea on a piece of paper, along with their own name, phone number and email address, and placing it in the ballot box that is located next to the cash registers in the main cafeteria.
The contest runs until Sept. 30 giving students plenty of time to come up with names. So far, about 25 to 30 students have put suggested names into the ballot box.
“I think this is a great idea,” said cafeteria worker Ute Ottman. “We get to see how creative the students can get.”
