Is New Always Better?

When visiting Ottawa University, all athletes are taken into the cafeteria. Coaches describe how great the beautiful restaurant-type place would be for satisfying hunger.  

Is that truly the case? It’s very pleasing to the eyes but the stomach is another conversation.

“Looks like 4-star restaurant makes food like a 2-star restaurant,” says Sammie Ford III, senior and three-year worker in the cafeteria.

Agreeing with the opinion that it is very eye-appealing but not very stomach-fulfilling, Ford knows best about the new cafeteria.

 “[I feel] sorry for the football players,” says Aralyn “Paige” Williams, junior, who misses the original buffet-style cafeteria. She went into detail how a swipe was worth more when just one swipe was needed to be let in and eat all you want.

This definitely sounds like a system that was beneficial to the students but could also encourage wastefulness.

This new cafeteria looks the part but fails when it comes to food.

What matters the most? Between the repetitive meal preps with a few changes, the new cafeteria kind of lacks what a “new” cafeteria should excel at.
