What's Cooking This Summer at Northeastern

As you make the finishing touches on final papers or exams during your last few days on campus, I wanted to let everyone know about some of our exciting plans for the upcoming summer.

As everyone knows Curry Student Center will be closed for renovations over the summer. We are incredibly excited about the new restaurant concepts and seating options that will be available to you come Fall 2012. If you want a sneak peak of what the new Curry Food Court will look like, stop by there tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25, from 11:30 to 1:30. We'll have a scale model of the design as well as floor plans and schematics of the new space - including the brand new mezzanine seating level! With Curry under construction until August this also means the H3 food truck will be in action every day this summer with a fun menu for everyone still on campus. Over the summer we will also be creating and testing new recipes and ideas for H3 - and in the dining halls as well.

We also look forward to meeting and developing relationships with new local farmers that will help provide some of our products for our fall menus. With the success of our partnership with the Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership (SEMAP) since last fall, as well as our recent partnership with Red's Best for seafood direct from the Atlantic Ocean, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to bring local and sustainable food options to you at Northeastern.

Finally, as we did last summer, we will once again be growing our own herbs and vegetables indoors at International Village. This was a lot of fun last year as all the herbs looked and smelled great. Last summer was our first try at this and we look forward to using what we learned to make our indoor garden even better!

Good luck with your final projects and tests and congratulations to the graduating class of 2012. Have a great summer everyone!
