The Max, often referred to as the Grille, is the
newest of dining choices for the students and staff at Faulkner University.
Finished in fall of 2007, the Grille is located on the third floor of the
newly added on area of the Gymnasium.
Set up as a Fast Food Concept, the Grille offers
many menu items found in fast food venues students often find in their home
towns. There are also several snacks to choose from as well as fresh baked
cookies, scones and a variety of hand spun milkshakes. There are three
televisions located the grille for students and staff to watch their
favorite shows, sports programs or games or even their local news.
One of the other attractions of the Max is the
memorabilia that fill the walls. Students will find pictures of Faulkner
athletes performing at their best as well as signed memorabilia from some
of the greatest names in college and professional sports from both past
All boarding students at Faulkner are required to
purchase a meal plan as part of their dining option. There are three
choices of meal plans:
Bronze Eagle: Allows for students
on this plan to have 7 meals each week.
Silver Eagle: Allows for students
on this plan to eat 14 meals each week.
Platinum Eagle: Allows for 20
meals to be eaten each week.
Students living in the Apartments on campus
may purchase two meal plan options:
Chef I: Student may dine up to
10 times per week on this plan.
Chef II: Students with this plan
may dine on 5 separate occasions.
Meal plans may be used in either the JLP Cafeteria
or in at the Grille in the student Multiplex. All meal plans are one-year
(two-term) contracts, except for new Spring Term meal plans. Meal plan
members may use their meal plan up to three times per day; however, only
one (1) meal may be redeemed at a time.
If someone using the meal plan wants to redeem more
than one meal at a time other funds must be used such as a credit or debit
card or Eagle bucks. Guests of the cafeteria may eat either in the dining
hall or take their meal to go, but are not permitted to do both at the same
Eagle Bucks.......what are those all about???
Eagle Bucks are one of the forms of payment that we
take at the Cafeteria, Grille and all new this year at Cafe Siena.
Eagle Bucks are money added to all traditional
students, full and part time, living on or off campus, that is loaded on
their ID card for purchases in the Grille, Cafeteria or Cafe Siena. One
hundred dollars (fifty dollars for part-time students) is added to each
student's id card and it is used much like a declining balance or debit card.
Students can use them when they go over the allotted meal value in the grille,
when they are out of meals on their meal plan, after hours when the meal plan
is no longer in effect or anytime that they would like to treat a friend.
Although meal plans are not taken at Cafe Siena, Eagle Bucks can be used to
purchase any item on Cafe Siena's menu.
In the event that a student uses all of his/her Eagle
Bucks more can be purchased at the business office on campus.
Each semester, one hundred dollars will be placed on
his or her student id card for anytime purchases in the Grille, Cafeteria or
at Cafe Siena. Eagle Bucks will roll over from Fall Semester to Spring
Semester but will not roll over from Spring to the next Fall Semester.
Eagle Bucks allow students to stay safe on campus and
save gas, save their gas for other stuff and allows them to eat anytime they
please. They are added during registration and additional Eagle Bucks are
available for purchase anytime during the semester.
“Going Green.” Universities and colleges all across
the country are doing it. Where can Culinary Management Solutions start?
The push to “Go Green” has been widespread. In the
weeks and months to come, the Faulkner Family will begin what we hope will
help in doing our part in making Faulkner part of a growing number of campuses
across the nation who are Going Green.
You as students will be directly involved with our
first initiative in beginning our Green program. In the months to come, we
will be removing the cafeteria trays in the JLP Cafeteria. You may ask
yourself, “how will this help in our effort to ‘Go Green‘”? By simply
removing trays from their cafeterias, universities nationwide have used up to
30,0000 less gallons of water each month. Thirty thousand gallons of water,
that’s a lot in itself.
Another factor influenced by the removal of trays from
university cafeterias is the amount of waste. According to studies
nationwide, students waste 25% to 30% less food when they aren’t carrying a
tray. A school in Maine went tray-less in February 2007 and reported an
overall reduction in food waste of 65,000 pounds.
Of course there will be accidents. It will take time
for students to get use to the “tray-less” idea. You may have to make an
extra trip for your drink or maybe put a little less on your plate each time.
Remember the meals will still have unlimited seconds in the cafeteria.
Going tray-less will not restrict how much you can have to eat. We are simply
hoping to reduce the waste.
In hopes of helping out with our transition to tray-less,
we have added a second “tray return area” in the back of the new section of the
cafeteria, just for your convenience. We ask that you be patient and work with
us as we begin implementing small steps for Culinary Management Solutions to
