Students, faculty, and staff filled the MLK Jr. Student Center on January 24th for the official grand opening of Chick- Fil- A and Subway restaurants. At 10:30 am the introduction and ribbon cutting took place. As the event continued, free samples and prizes were distributed to students. There was also a humorous duel between the DSU Hornet Mascot and the Chick- Fil- A cow.     [jwplayer mediaid="1863"]      During the introduction, DSU president Dr. L. Harry Williams and Aramark representative Jim Heisler spoke briefly about the partnership between Aramark and Delaware State University. Furthermore they expressed their excitement about the new food venues on campus. “We have relationships with over 400 colleges and universities across the country” said Jim Heisler. Local schools include Widener University, University of Delaware, La Salle University, and Wesley College.

According to the executive director of Dining & Auxiliary services Jeffery DeMoss, DSU’s dining committee researched the top restaurant chains in America. Then a survey was conducted asking students to pick 10 of their favorite restaurant chains (based on the dining committee’s research). 300 students responded and the top 3 favorite restaurant chains were Chick- Fil- A, Mc Donald’s, and Subway.

“Chick- Fil- A and Subway ended up being the best selection based on the impact we got from the students and the staff” said Dr. Harry L. Williams. “[In the future] there will be some opportunities for different venues to serve us [as the population of the university expands]” he added.

Students can also expect renovation to Conrad Hall as well as the Village Café. Jeffery DeMoss is planning to have several pods (food stations) in Conrad Hall; such as a salad bar towards the entrance. There will also be a pod that carries pizza, pasta, and other hot meals. A pod with cold foods will be added as well. Renovations are projected to begin this summer. Thus far, students are happy with changes in food services at the university.
