A traveling exhibit showcasing the experiences of women during World War II came to Reinhardt last week.

Following Spring Break, a ten-panel traveling exhibit was set up in Gordy Dining Hall. These panels outlined the experiences of women during the Second World War. Some of the panels showcase how women aided the war effort through factory work, gained more opportunities for higher education and broke into traditionally male professions.

Below is a photo gallery of the exhibit.

Reinhardt’s new food service provider off to a solid start

Students returned to campus this fall to discover a new management company operating the campus’ food services and early reviews indicate general satisfaction with the change.

The university contracted Metz Culinary Management last spring to replace Sodexo as the university’s food service provider. Metz manages Gordy Dining Hall, Starbucks and The Nook (formerly the Varsity).

In business since 1994, Metz services clients in corporate, healthcare and education settings. The company’s mission, according to its website, is to strive to deliver restaurant-inspired hospitality to each and every guest.

Students have noticed this new approach through the service and quality of food being offered. Metz has continued “Fried Chicken Wednesdays,” a popular meal option. It also has continued to serve hot food options, a salad bar and a dessert section. The quality of the hot food, in particular, has improved, according to students.

“My favorite change would have to be the lemon pepper, barbecue, and hot wings they serve every now and then,” Kevon James, a senior Biology major said. “The food is way better this year compared to last year.”

Although the improvement in the quality of food has been praised, students report that Metz still has some operational practices to smooth out. One often heard complaint has focused on the long serving lines.

“Gordy needs to do something about the longer lines. We barely have time to get a meal in between classes,” Miles Hollis, a sophomore Communication and Media Studies major, said.

We reached out to a representative from Metz for a comment on the long lines and we did not receive a reply.

Overall, the new company has been a pleasant change and more changes are forthcoming. These include plans for expansion of the dining facility over the summer, with completion expected by Fall 2017.

Students were welcomed back to campus and invited to kickoff the fall semester at a special event packed with breakfast favorites.

Students, faculty, staff and administration joined together for the annual Late Night Breakfast Aug. 21 at 9 p.m. at the Gordy Dining Hall. Reinhardt’s leadership team and deans, along with Metz Culinary Management, served up eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and more to hungry students.
