SWOSU University Grill Now Open
February 17, 2006
The University Grill at SWOSU is now open on the Weatherford campus.
The grill, located on the east side of the Student Union, has been completely renovated and now features five eating areas, a game room that opens up to the food court area, and new furniture/decor.
Duncan Taylor, director of SWOSU Auxiliary Services, said the response from students so far has been very positive. He invites everyone to stop by and visit the new place.
The five eating areas feature Arrizzo’s Italian, Chicken Strip Joint, Bulldog Grill, Casa Solana Mexican and the Corner Bakery. The seating capacity for the University Grill is now 350, up from the previous 250. Pictures on the walls feature SWOSU scenes dating back to the early 1900s.
Taylor said there is a new entrance area on the north side of the building. The east entrance also remains and eventually there will be an atrium entrance from the west.
SWOSU Vice President Tom Fagan said the renovation of the University Grill was an internal project headed by Physical Plant Director Rick Skinner and conducted by SWOSU employees. Fagan said the university appreciates the dedicated work to the project.
The SWOSU Student Union has been under a $4 million renovation since mid-2005. Other phases, which are expected to be finished by August of this year, include the addition of a coffee house, renovation of the ballroom, and the west side addition.
