You are what you eat...
Belk food high in fat
by Ginny Bonkemeyer
Mouth-watering images of mom’s
homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu,
steamed broccoli, and fresh apple
pie come to mind as I ravenously
wait in the cafeteria line.
I am quickly slapped back to reality
with the siglit of greasy vegetables
and a baked chicken breast contain
ing 23 grams of fat.
Many people feel that, as a women’s
college, Meredith’s dining hall
should be more health conscious
and aware of students’ needs.
There have been situations in
which dining hall conditions have
fostered the habits of eating disor
ders, because of the higli fat and
Students complain of the grease in

There are a considerable number of
vegetarians on campus having
trouble eating in the dining hall.
The vegetatian entrees are inad
equate for many students’ diets, as
they tend to be very high in fat.
Some vegetarians also do not eat
dairy produas, and the dining hall’s
vegetarian entrees frequently
As a side note, there are a number of
students that remain on campus on
the weekends, and it seems that
most meals served are leftovers, or
particularly strange combinations -
waffles with bean chili? Crunchy
Macaroni? Many complaints fly on
the weekends about the creative
Considering that resident students
do not have the option of a meal
plan less than 21 meals per week,
there are some improvements that
could be made that have been
suggested to me.
Some popular requests are for the
deli bar during all dinner hours, and
for the dining hall to open on time,
because of class schedules.
Meredith’s dining hall needs to offer
some healthy choice and more
appropriate vegetarian items, and
better food on the weekends.

Letter to the
In response to the editorial on
September 6, 1995, concerning
male visitation, I do not think males
should be allowed in our dorms.
Most everyone entering Meredith
knows the rule about men before
they come, and if some people do
not like it, they do not have to
come. It was your own choice to
come to an all woman’s college, so
deal with it! Men are allowed to be
anywhere on this campus except
dorm hallways and rooms. What’s
the big deal?! I enjoy not having to
worry about strange men walking
up and down our halls. Don’t try to
change Meredith when it has been
a tradition here for many years.
Meredith College has been an
esteemed center for education and
tradition long before the question
of male visitation arose. Maybe
more Open House days is what this
college needs to add, then everyone
would be happy. However, I do not
think that male visitation at all
times, as some may call for, is a
feasible solution. It is necessary for
us to keep in mind the voice of
every student and therefore, a
forum would be a logical idea.
