VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY
Student Cafeteria
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

[ RETURN HOME PAGE ]

Nothing like eating your lunch in a drab plain looking Cafeteria. Vanderbilt was having trouble keeping
the students from eating at other places like Pizza Hut, Mc Donalds, Buger King and so forth. Loosing
money big time and really weren't sure why the kids wouldn't eat at the college eatery. Well my son
knew why, he told them they needed to remodel using a theme that would be attractive, yet designed to
capture the intrest of young college students. This is what he did to that drab, plain and boreing thing
they called a Cafeteria.
