VSU Adds More Food Options

VALDOSTA - Valdosta State University will offer more exciting food options as renovations begin at the University Food Court later this month. The university’s new food service provider, Sodexho Campus Services, continues to become more involved in the stunning transformation of the university’s campus.

In late July 2007, the UC Food Court will be the new home to SubConnection, which serves quality deli meats and cheeses on freshly baked breads; and Sky Ranch Grill, a premier burger concept; while giving a fresh new look to the existing national chain, Chick-fil-A. The addition of these two food options will bring the total count of Sodexho’s signature brands on campus to four and the number of dining locations to eleven.

The food court will be Sodexho’s second phase of renovations to begin at VSU. The first phase, completed in August 2006, included Palms Dining Center; the addition of Einstein Bros. Bagels at the Dewar College of Education; the introduction of Jazzman’s Café at Odum Library; and the reorganization of Palms Dining Center to create a retail center to include: Quiznos, Salsa Rico and Jazzman’s Café. Future renovation plans include new dining locations at Hopper Hall and the Student Union.
