As I take my normal dinner break at Douglass Dinning, like I often do, I noticed that the selections of food were very diverse.

I was very pleased to see the Halal station that features different products that cater to the Muslim people on campus. In light of recent events involving nationality concerns toward Muslim Americans, I believe that this is a great idea.

There is no other way to make a person feel at home than to make available the entrees from their homeland. On a more personal note, my favorite station is Cranberry Farms.

This station features a selection of foods that are familiar to me as an African-American. These selections tend to be more filling and hearty. Perfect for the ends of those long, cold, days of class.

While eating at my favorite station one day, I had a problem with my chicken.

I complained to the manager, Will Singletary, whom immediately rectified the problem by bringing me another piece of chicken that was done to the bone. Singletary proved to be very personable and helpful.

I was totally satisfied with the customer service that I received from Douglass Dinning Center.

Kudos to Greek community

Congratulations to Delta Gamma sorority for their annual fund raiser, Anchor Splash, which culminated in a rousing medley of swimming events at the Zornow Center written about in the Nov. 15 Campus Times.

The Greek community as a whole deserves kudos for their spirited participation in a hugely fun event that generates money for a worthy charity. The last time I was in an Anchor Splash some 8-10 years ago.

There was no where near the number of teams and spectators involved as in 2001. It was exciting to have seen how it has grown.

Consequently, DG has to be complimented on the super job they did in organizing Anchor Splash and for making the meet run so smoothly.

Therefore, as captain of the faculty/staff team? Swamp Rats ? I’d like to publicly express our appreciation.

We had a ball ? even if “It was funny to see how into everything the faculty were.”

Continue keeping people informed

I have been reading the Campus Times since the beginning of the semester and I find the articles quite interesting.

From the Walk for Light, to Meliora Weekend, Convocation and the recent murder at Genesee Valley Park, it keeps readers informed of the events happening on and around campus. Not to mention the surrounding City of Rochester.

It also keeps the reader informed of events happening around the world, like the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

It also gives interesting insights on issues affecting college students from freshmen and upperclassmen housing to their interpretation ? and opinions ? of modern music stars.

The CT also gives the reader the chance to voice their opinions in the Letters to the Editor section, giving it a personal touch.

It is a very integral part of campus life to keep the students informed, and should continue to do so in the future.

Hippo Campus’ D-Day show was to “Ride or Die” for

Hippo Campus’ performance was a well-needed break from the craze of finals, and just as memorable as their name would suggest.
