One of the first things returning Westmont students notice about campus is the sizable hole in the cafeteria building. For freshmen, this isn’t an unusual sight– they never had a previous perspective of the cafeteria to compare today’s look to. But for alumni, the constant question of “What happened to the cafeteria?” is left perpetually unanswered. As a student worker, I have access to slightly more detailed information about what to expect from the cafeteria in the future– which I will share here.
A stark difference from working indoors, I find this change jarring, albeit necessary. The ultimate plan of this remodeling is to renovate the cafeteria to a system similar to Branham’s or Prospect’s (new kitchen). There have been whispers of different food booths– like sushi (which I am hopeful about, but doubt), pizza, burgers, veggies, etc. This renovation is expected to take from 18 months (at least) to 2 years+ – which unfortunately will result in regular acquisition of food in the dark behind the stage. But after said allotted time, Westmont will have a brand new shiny kitchen for everyone to enjoy.
