The top priority for most college students remains the same: food. It’s typical to see a tumultuous crowd of students in the dining halls as they scramble to find valuable seats.
This semester, returning students might have been surprised to find their seats in Lenoir Dining Hall without the hassle they have experienced in years past.
Lenoir spent $5 million on renovating the space to improve the seating area in an attempt to reduce crowds. Two hundred new seats were added to the top level. Improvements also include a larger salad bar and Bistro servers.
“I really like the changes, I can’t complain because they spent all this money,” said sophomore Darbie McPhail.
Junior Anay Reddy agreed.
