Dining Services Appreciates SU Students
May 01, 2014
Wednesday, April 30, marked the end of Spring classes for Stetson students, as well as the end of two full semesters with Stetson’s new Dining Services. To show their appreciation, the Dining Services team continued the tradition of Student Appreciation Day started by cashier Brenda Smith.
This year’s theme was HatterWood. The Commons portrayed an elegant, Oscar-styled party to celebrate Stetson’s biggest stars—its students. In the photo, right, Rebecca Williams, director of Catering, serves sparkling grape juice to the student clientele.
“We want to create a dynamic dining experience at Stetson…one that the students see as an extension of the student experience,” said Chris Kandus-Fisher, vice president for student affairs. “Events such as the Student Appreciation Day will hopefully show the whole university community what we want the dining experience to be. Chartwells is committed to offering a cutting edge experience and I am hopeful that we will continue to work towards this goal in the coming months.”
The event featured live music from local artists Ron Duncan and The Robbie Carelli Project. Sparkling cider was flowing and the paparazzi were out as students enjoyed an upscale menu. In photo, left, Candra Reid, associate controller, serves sparkling grape juice to students.
“This was our way to give back to the students,” said Paul Johnson, Stetson Dining Services senior director. “We know it’s been a rough year with all sorts of unexpected changes and hurdles. We love being a part of Stetson’s community and just wanted to say Thank You!”
