PINEVILLE, La. (Wildcats Media) – Louisiana Christian University has added another dining option to the food court at the Hixson Student Center food.
President Rick Brewer, who was on hand, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open a new Pizza Hut on Jan. 11, said the restaurant was added after the student body, in the spring 2021 semester, indicated they most wanted pizza and wings as new food court offerings.
“It was really in response to students,” Brewer said. “That’s why we did it.”
Students such as Jai Melancon waited in line up to 30 minutes before the ribbon cutting to receive one of the 100 free t-shirts handed out by the school to mark the occasion.
“I love that our school’s investing back into the student body,” Melancon said.
Pizza Hut joins Starbucks, Subway and Wildcat Grill as dining options available to students. Brewer said he is hopeful LCU will add even more food options in the future.
