Coffee cart offers students sustenance in DeBartolo

first_imgAs of this week, students with morning classes in DeBartolo Hall no longer need to get their coffee fix in another building and then rush across campus. A brand new Au Bon Pain coffee cart opened in the middle of DeBartolo Hall on Monday. The coffee cart, located next to the 101 DeBartolo auditorium in DeBartolo Hall, delivers on a campaign promise Alex Coccia and Nancy Joyce made during their 2013 election bid. The stand, known as the “DeBart Coffee Cart,” is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and offers both hot beverages and pastries to students and staff on their way to and from DeBartolo classes. Student Government partnered with Notre Dame Food Services to make the coffee cart a reality, student body president Alex Coccia said. Coccia said he appreciates the support from Food Services and other University departments. “Food Services has done a tremendous job putting together the coffee cart to ensure that it runs smoothly,” Coccia said. “We cannot thank them and John Affleck Graves’ entire office enough for their service to the students.” The manager of Au Bon Pain, Christina Ryan, said she was impressed with the success of the coffee cart so far. “[Tuesday] is only the second day that the cart has been open for business, and we have already doubled the number of students served. We served 171 yesterday, which was pretty amazing,” Ryan said. “As expected, we have been going through a lot of coffee, six gallons after only a couple of hours today.” Ryan also said students have voiced their appreciation and she hopes to add to the menu in the future to best serve students.  “I’ve heard a lot of good feedback from students,” Ryan said. “We’re here for the students. Maybe next fall we’ll be able to offer more.” Coccia said the “DeBart Cart” is the result of a simple idea but has the potential to help a lot of people.  “In our 2013 campaign, we promised to get hot caffeine in DeBartolo Hall,” Coccia said. “We proposed something simple but that would serve the needs of students who have multiple classes a day in DeBartolo and are stressed for time between them.” Student body vice president Nancy Joyce said any future changes or expansion of the coffee cart would be based on the student response. “This semester’s coffee cart is a pilot, which will be adjusted at the end of the semester to better suit the needs of students,” Joyce said.last_img read more

GB let lead slip against Ireland

first_img But from that point GB lost the initiative and after Jackson’s penalty corner flick rebounded off the post, Kyle Good diverted in a cross from Mitch Darling. Ireland’s physicality threw their opponents off their stride and Jackson deservedly equalised in the 36th minute after continuing his run to the byline to volley home a loose ball. GB goalkeeper George Pinner was by far the busiest in the final two quarters, producing one brilliant save to tip a penalty corner onto the post before blocking the rebound and also palming over Conor Harte’s shot in the last minute. “It’s frustrating because in both games we’ve been ahead and they’ve come back and got draws,” said Middleton in his post-match interview. “We have a lot of games left to achieve what we want to do here. “We started well and when we went 2-0 up we just had to do a few more things a bit better. We weren’t quite as good as we can be.” GB face the tournament’s lowest-ranked side China on Thursday, while Ireland take on Malaysia in their second fixture. “Overall we’re happy with the result,” said Ireland coach Craig Fulton. “We were a bit nervous in the first quarter but settled in the second quarter and got on the scoreboard. “The second half was pleasing, we created some good phases of play which was more like us.” As in their opener against the host nation, GB let an advantage slip to leave them with two points from as many games in Antwerp, where the tournament is doubling as an Olympic qualifier. Captain Barry Middleton opened the scoring after just five minutes when his cross was deflected in by Ireland’s John Jackson before a cross-shot from Mark Gleghorn, facing brother Paul in the Irish team, was expertly deflected in by Chris Griffiths. Great Britain squandered an early two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Ireland at the World League Semi-final in Belgium. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
