Father Gabriel Zeis, T.O.R., president, served as master of ceremonies during the grand re-opening celebration of the newly renovated Torvian Dining Hall. In addition to a new look, healthier foods were promoted, including a Flash Fitness station, that featured turkey meatloaf with an orange sauce, couscous and grilled vegetables. Food items like this will now be offered daily. According to Leo Cavanaugh, Parkhurst Dining general manager, “We are happy to help educate our students on selecting food items that are healthier, contributing to the overall health and wellness for them on campus.”

Under the direction of Terry McMullen, executive chef, and chefs Armando Balderas and Steven Gill, “visiting” chefs from other Parkhurst-managed schools including Lycoming College, Bucknell University and Chatham University, prepared their favorite recipes, including:

  • Bulgogi, A spicy pork Korean dish
  • Margarita salad (one with chicken and one vegetarian option)
  • Bun Chay, rice noodles with stir fry vegetables
