the campus. Meredith students are

bilities and are eager for them to
Students agree that the new rose

appetizing setting, but feel that there
are still some kinks that need to be
The Meredith Herald took the
students’ questions to Thad
O’Briant, food services director. He
too agrees that there are problems to
be worked out and was more than
willing to answer questions.
The lines are too congested.
There is not enough space to move
According to O’Briant the lines
are moving faster than last year.
When all of the programs (Cafe
Featines, Grill Works) are imple
mented, it will be a much better
situtation. He says that students are
conditioned to the old traffic- flow
and once they get used to the new

an informational system, providing
students with menus and nutritional
information. These boards will be
placed in the foyers at each door. O’
Briant said that they have been or
dered and should arrive soon.

cording to Meredith Security, no
one was hurt.
Susan Broadwell was leav
ing the campus around noon last
Wednesday, and while exiting
Faircloth gate, she took her eyes off
the road for a few seconds to
straighten something in the
passenger’s seat. While going down
the hill, her car went off the road and
hit a light pole. The car flipped.
Broadwell was wearing her seatbelt.
Chief Dan Shattuck said it saved her
A little after the accident oc
curred, the security office received a
call from one ofthe call boxes. Chief
Shattuck said that three people had
called on the box and that he couldn’t
really understand what any of them
were saying. He stressed the impor
tance of knowing how the call boxes
are used. The emergency boxes can
