Talk:Goodhue Dining Hall
Dining hall in Myers?
Ken--thanks for the great expansion on this article! One question, though: You wrote, "That made living in Evans, Myers, and Goodhue less desirable since residents were expected to eat all meals in those dining halls. " Did you mean Gridley instead of Myers? --Chris Johnson '96 22:06, 14 July 2006 (BST)
Chris, Women living in Evans and Myers usually ate in Evans; men living in Goodhue ate there. Women in Norse and Gridley ate in Gridley while men in Musser, Davis, and Burton ate in Burton and senior men who lived in Sevy ate in the Tea Room (if memory serves me correctly).
So, if you lived in Evans, Myers, or Goodhue and had morning classes and afternoon labs, you were expected to hike back to your assigned dining facility for lunch and then back to academialand after eating.
Or, if you were in the libe at 5:55 pm, you had to get back to 'Hue or Evans for supper since it was nigh unto impossible to avoid being recognized as an outsider by head waitrons or Carleton Food Service dining room supervisors in Burton or Gridley. And being late was frowned upon.
(No id cards or meal cards, just old fashioned personal recognition, which meant that the first few weeks in the fall were about the only time you could cheat the system that was facilitated by the fact that most people ate at the same tables, with the same group of friends, served by the same waitron every lunch and a second waitron every supper -- except of course, when some of us had 14-meal work contracts and worked both lunch and dinner every day. And no such thing as flex dollars either. There was always Bill's ((now Basil's)), Dino's ((that occupied the now empty space next to Basil's)), the Ideal, the King's Room, the Ole Store, or Tiny's, but they were even longer walks, and for those of us with big work contracts, those choices were financially unthinkable.)
