Ohio University recently celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Boyd Dining Hall, West Green Campus Market, and smoothie bar, Smooth Moves. The refreshed and modernized facilities provide more convenience to busy students, without compromising quality or nutritional value.

 

In the AYCE dining hall, a digital ordering station allows students to place orders to pick up at their own convenience, which reduces lines, and also allows students to view nutritional content before they order. The Whole Foods-esque Campus Market offers a vegetable butcher, fresh produce, convenience items, and also provides students with cooking tips and recipes in an effort to prepare them for off-campus living. Smooth Moves lets students create their own fresh fruit smoothies, or choose from signature selections. The renovations made to Boyd Hall are successful in their ability to focus on quality, fresh ingredients that encourage students to refuel with healthier choices
