Contest Produces Name for SSC Dining Area

The dining area in the new Student Service Center will be called the “Fieldhouse Food Bar.” The nostalgic reference to the former Hedgcock Fieldhouse, which was located in the facility being converted to the SSC, was adapted from the winning entry among more than 100 submissions in a contest.

Pictured at the construction area are (from left): Michael Adams, ASNMU Dining Services Representative; senior Jared Lawson, 2nd place; Sharon Carey (Dining Services), Judy Hopper (AdIT), 3rd place; senior Casey Allen, 1st place; and Dick Wittman (Dining Services).


Two students came up with the same idea,“The Fieldhouse,” which was used as the basis for the final selection determined by the President’s Council and the ASNMU Dining Services sub-committee. Allen, a hospitality management major from Houghton Lake, Mich., earned first place for submitting the idea a day before Lawson, also a hospitality management major.


“The facility will take on a theme reflecting on the great events that have taken place in Hedgecock’s history and great athletes that are a part of Northern’s heritage,” Carey said.


Hopper received third place for “Hedgecock Bistro.” Prizes for the top three finalists include a DVD player with surround sound speakers, a 19” color TV and a cordless phone.


The rest of the top five submissions were “Northern Delights” submitted by Robert Rustman, “The Max” submitted by Jamie Driscoll and “Frost Bytes,” changed from “Frost Bites” submitted by Kayla Rice. Other ideas included “Food-A-Licious,” “The Litter Box,” “NMU 2,” “Cafedral,” “Garden of Eatin’,” and “The Three Broomsticks.”
