Grilled cheese, cookies, and bacon-wrapped hot dogs—oh my!
An abundance of tasty food samples were on hand for the first annual Food Truck Frenzy on Aug. 31, 2018.
Dynamic Wings Express, Wicked Dog Grille, Brazilian Munchies, The Grilled Cheese Café and The Cookie Dude passed out free treats to students-including dulce de leche churros, nachos, subs and more. Beverages were provided by Dining Services.
"It was a fun wrap-up to Welcome Week and the first week of classes," said Samantha Proffitt, director of academic achievement and first-year experience. "We wanted students to not only expand their culinary horizons, but to engage with the community they now live in."
About 450-500 students, faculty and staff enjoyed a festival feel, with not only food goodies but music from WQSU and prizes. The event and vendors were sponsored by the Office of First-Year Experience and the Student Government Association.
