The Truth About Campus Center
It can’t be that bad, can it?
The truth is, when it comes to Campus Center, you either love it or you hate it–but most MNU students fall in-between.
When students come to visit–for example, SCOUT, Senior Visit Day, MAX–the food is at an all-time high. Everyone is in a good mood because there are actual food choices that we can live with. I mean, the Campus Center staff spoils the newbies; they shower them with grilled food, special dips, soups that taste good, and other delights. The bread is always fresh; the fruit is hand-picked from the ripest trees, and the desserts are to dies for.
But when there is no one to impress, everything changes.
Now, I’m not saying that the food is terrible–because it’s not. Compared to most Nazarene schools, MidAmerica has the most choices to choose from, and the taste of it is at least a 7.5 on a scale from one-ten.
But I am saying, once you’ve been around for longer than a semester–long enough to gain the freshman fifteen–everything starts to taste the same…and that, my friends, is no bueno.
However, where there are cons, there are plenty of pros.
If the food sucks that night:
-There are always sandwiches and wraps at the sandwich bar–you can never go wrong with a sandwich and chips.
-There’s a waffle maker…YUM
-There’s at least six different cereal types to choose from.
-There’s so much ice cream…I’m not even sure what all the flavors are.
-And, as of recently, they’ve added to baby grills–that’s endless opportunities right there!
IF all else fails, you can buy a packet of Ramen Noodles for 97 cents at Walmart.
Oh, but I’m not done yet. There are two special days that MNU students can’t get enough of: Wednesday nights and Thursday lunches.
Wednesday Nights are typically called meat nights. There are usually steaks, fried chicken strips and shrimp to choose from–those are the normal choices, but they differ from time to time. And every now and then, we have theme night; it could be all Japanese food, all French food, or all Brazilian food–you really never know until you get there, and really, a lot of the food is quite good.
On Thursday afternoons, there’s spicy chicken and fries—Nuff said.
I guess Campus Center isn’t all that bad!
I hope ya’ll enjoyed this week’s blog!
