Zaxby’s of Brevard has ended the 25 percent
discount forBC students and faculty previously
offered on Tuesdays, according to the store’s
The college discount was not the only
promotion discontinued. All discounts, including
those for senior citizens, have been removed,
said general manager Tracy Dailey.
The order came down from the Zaxby’s
corporation headquarters in Athens, Ga. “The
head of marketing said the discounts were losing
too much money,” Dailey said. “It wasn’t even
a franchise decision.”
Zaxby’s corporate office could not immediately
confirm or deny Dailey’s claim. The question
has been sent to upper-management, who has
not yet responded.
Former Zaxby’s employee and BC student
Jonathan Hyde isn’t convinced the call to end
the discount came from corporate. “I don’t
know how much I would trust the people at the
Brevard Zaxby’s,” he said.
BC students aren’t the only ones affected.
The discount on Tuesdays was previously made
available for all college students and faculty in
Dailey says BC students and faculty didn’t
turn out in great numbers on Tuesdays in
general. “We usually have much more Blue
Ridge Community College students coming in
to use the discount,” she said.
“I don’t eat at Zaxby’s,” said student Greg
Woods. “Students should be hunting their food
There is no indication that the discount
previously offered at the Brevard Zaxby’s will
return. According to Dailey, the okay would
have to come from corporate headquarters.
The mystery behind the Student Plaza
I Perspective I
By Karen Love
A majority of BC students have noticed the
area blocked off between Moore Science and
Myers Dining Hall, optimistically known as the
Student Engagement Plaza.
There have been plenty of questions and
rumors flying around about the plaza: its
purpose, why it is so un-aesthetically pleasing
and if there are any plans to improve it in the
The purpose of the plaza was to give the
students another place to become engaged in an
outdoor setting and to also add more green space
to the campus, and to increase the college’s
“waUcability.” The plaza was designed to be
implemented in three phases.
After the proposal was submitted to the city,
they were concerned about the amount of silt
and runoff going into the two storm drains that
are in the area. The city has halted the process
of adding mulch to the space and has requested
that we submit a new proposal with a better plan
of how to deal with silt and runoff
Currently, a landscape architect is redesigning
the area to minimize the amount of silt that is
Phase 1: included blocking off that area
of the parking lot to gauge the affects
of the plaza on parking and traffic flow,
and to asses the interest of the students.
This phase was also going to include
adding mulch the area to cover up the
unsightly parking lines.
Phase 2: ripping up the asphalt (and the
mulch) and planting grass there.
Phase 3: will transform the area into
the Engagement Plaza with the addition
of more seating, a staging area and
possibly a fountain. These plans can
be found on the portal, and may be
displayed in the cafeteria lobby in the
deposited into the storm drains. This proposal
will be submitted to the city for revision and
hopefully we will be able to proceed with the
There is really no way of knowing how long
this project will take due to the city’s regulations
and budgetary restrictions, but hopefully within
the next year to two years there will be a
completed, and engaging Student Plaza.
