Norris renovations bringing food options for students

Renovations to the Norris University Center food court are underway, and sometime this quarter, students will have a broader menu from which to choose.

The additions include SubConnection and Freshen’s yogurt — which will replace the Cone Zone — and additional snacks at Higher Grounds Coffee.

Higher Grounds will serve coffee from Starbucks Coffee and pastries from Corner Bakery; Freshen’s yogurt will dish out ice cream, yogurt, smoothies, sweets and other snacks; and SubConnection will provide various hot and cold sub sandwiches. But for now, only Higher Grounds is open.

The new area, which will occupy the same space as Cone Zone and Higher Grounds did, will be called “Willie’s Too.”

“I’m hopeful we’re providing things the students want,” said Joe Mroczkowski, special assistant to the director of Norris. He worked with the Norris Advisory Board, which includes seven students and six administrators, to develop the idea for these additions.

“We’re looking for products students said they’d be interested in having,” Mroczkowski said.

Some students said they are excited about the new pickings.

“I like all changes that are trying to make food at NU better,” Weinberg sophomore Debb Farr said.

Another student, however, said Norris should serve foods that have not already been there. “If they wanted to really appease the students, they should do something new and exciting, not just upgrade things that were there already,” Weinberg junior Ari Margolis said.

Mroczkowski added that he hopes students will tell him if there is something more that they want added. “Norris is a place for the students,” he said. “We’re here to service student needs.”
