Campus eats in a nutshell

BY jill myers

Has the starving student become extinct? One look around the abundance of Emory’s campus eateries and one wonders how they ever existed.

And while students may have adjusted to these increased options, faculty and staff—with their personal and professional plates full—might need help digging in. Especially if you started working at Emory in 1977 like senior administrative director Bill Horne.

Back then Horne had two choices to eat: the cafeteria at Cox Hall, “which served meals like you can get at
Piccadilly,” and Dooley’s Den (not connected the current Dooley’s Den at the Depot). “Dooley’s Den was a student hangout and I don’t really remember what they served, but it was always too noisy and crowded to enjoy.”

Nearly 30 years later, Cox Hall Food Court—no longer a cafeteria and freshly renovated this summer—offers the hungry masses not only cafeteria staples like fried chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese, but also deli meat by the pound, spicy tuna rolls and steak burritos.

Those with a bigger appetite and small budget can sidle over to the DUC for Ultimate Dining. For a mere $7.50, faculty and staff can sit down to an all-you-can-eat lunch of soup, salad, sandwiches, quesadillas and entrees like roasted salmon and vegetarian sweet corn tamale pie. Eat until your heart is content or your cardiologist gets angry.

If hunger already has set in and Cox Hall and the DUC are too far, or nighttime too near, or perhaps the pocketbook too empty, Emory’s campus offers plenty of other choices for the rare, but starving student, faculty or staff member.

In the coming months Emory Report will explore these campus eateries in depth and welcomes readers’ suggestions.
