Students are raving about the new cafeteria experience on the campus of Piedmont International University this semester. Over the summer the school made the switch from their old food service provider to Aramark.
In conjunction with the new food service the university has been busy making changes to the dining hall to enhance the experience for students, staff, and faculty. The new look includes fresh paints that represent our school’s colors, new tables, new dining signs, and appliances.
We took on the cafeteria during lunch hour to hear from the students about how they are enjoying the new experience!
“The new Aramark service has been quite an improvement from the previous food service. There is a considerable improvement in the consistency and quality of the food. There is an effort to make it better and the desserts are prepared fresh! Everything is fresh, freshly baked goods and fresh fruits!”PIU Senior | John-Caleb Ahern
“Out of the couple meals I have had here, the meal I have most enjoyed is today’s burgers and fries. It’s a bit more expensive but it is worth it.”PIU Student | Andrew Ashby
“The food quality is good and they actually have enough food for everybody which is something I appreciate.”PIU Senior | Eric
“The food is really good! The spaghetti has been my favorite so far!”PIU Freshman | Emily
“I really like the food. It’s really good! It’s been enjoyable to have all the different meals!”PIU Freshman | Austin
“I really like that we have more space and that the colors are more vivid. We have a more welcoming atmosphere and we have more tables”PIU Student | Victor
“I’m thrilled with the improvement and the cleanliness of the new set up. As far as favorite food, I would have to go with the desserts.”PIU Staff | Bonnie McDaniels
I think the new service is great! It’s way better than what our old service was offering us! This is far better! And what they have done to spruce up the cafeteria cosmetically is amazing. Like the PIU dining signs and the painting on the walls. It’s come a long way.”PIU Staff | Todd Matthews
We even got a word in from our very own Dean of Campus and Spiritual Life, Pastor Jeff Clawson. Jeff was the one who announced the new food service during the end of spring semester of 2019 and he was worked hard to give the students a delightful dining experience.
“I love that Aramark combines high-quality, consistent food service with a desire to serve our students. The food is great and Aramark has quickly become part of the PIU family!”Jeff Clawson
It’s exciting to see our bruin family respond so positively to the new changes. If you haven’t already, give PIU cafeteria a try!
