Construction Updates for Armstrong Campus Locations

From Eddie Mills, Associate Vice President for Auxiliary Services:   “Eagle Dining Services asks for your patience as we work through the process of bringing four exciting brands to campus later over the next several months – Chick-fil-A (MCC Food Court), Starbucks (MCC), Southern Cafe (MCC Food Court) and Sushi with Gusto (University Hall).”
 
Construction on Chick-fil-A is set to begin Monday, August 13th.  During this time, there will be no food services provided in the MCC Food Court.  The Food Court seating area is still available for use by students, faculty and staff, but we ask that you use caution as contractors move in and out of that area.
Construction dates for Starbucks, Southern Cafe, and Sushi with Gusto are still to be determined as we finalize design documents.  Further communications will be forthcoming.
Questions regarding Dining Services at the Armstrong Campus may be directed to Eddie Mills (edmills@georgiasouthern.edu) or Michael Morgan (jmorgan@georgiasouthern.edu).
Questions regarding construction activities for Chick-fil-A may be directed to Sandi Wilkinson at swilkinson@georgiasouthern.edu.

Big Changes to Dining on the Armstrong Campus

In May of this year, the Armstrong Campus dining program transitioned to become part of Eagle Dining Services, an Auxiliary Services department of Georgia Southern University. Over the next few months, you will begin to see a number of dining transformations on campus as we move forward with this transition.

The Galley Dining Commons will remain as the premier spot for residential dining on the Armstrong Campus. Conveniently located in the Student Union, The Galley provides the campus with a wide range of food stations and a unique food experience. The Galley offers fresh, oven-baked pizza, pasta, home-style favorites, Tex-Mex cuisine, a salad bar with a large variety of options, dessert and more. Students may use their Dining Plan at The Galley as well as at both Residential Dining locations on the Statesboro Campus.

In addition to the Residential Dining advancements, EDS is adding new retail locations to the Armstrong Campus. The Statesboro Campus favorite, GUS Mart, will make its way to the Armstrong Campus Student Union this summer. Sushi with Gusto, The Perk, and the revamped University Court (Union Deli, Chick-fil-A and a Starbucks kiosk) will make their Armstrong Campus debuts throughout the fall semester.

In addition to those Retail Dining locations, EDS’s Blue Tie Catering will now service the Armstrong Campus. The Blue Tie Catering food truck will begin operating in the fall.

Patrons may use Dining Dollars, Budget Bucks or EagleXpress in addition to traditional forms of payment at all of these Retail Dining Locations as well as all Residential and Retail Dining locations on the Statesboro Campus.
