Freshmen oping with the Beam Theres no place like home. Nothing could compare to that favorite chair by the TV, your own room and especially mom's home cooking. Sitting in your dorm room, you could smell that chicken frying and those rolls baking. Your mouth started watering just thinking about it. But then you were a freshman at ACU and you had made the big move in leaving home. What would you do when meal time rolled around? Should you send for mom? Or succumb to practicality and walk over to Carter Cafeteria -- better known as "the Bean." ust the nickname was enough to scare you away. What kind of beans do they serve anyway?

Carolyn 78 Freshmen Maybe you'll transfer . . . or better yet, just go si. E where you know the food is good. Such were the thoughts of the typical ACU freshma when confronted with the Bean - shock, surprise or mayb just a confirmation of the worst fears. It was cafeteria food: Bean food, chow, eats, foodstuff? feed, grub, vittles. It was whatever you wanted to call it. Bt it still tasted the same. Unfortunately not many people seen ed to be happy with the Bean, especially freshmen. "I found what I expected," said Pam Zeigler, freshma from Waco. "My brothers and sisters graduated from ACU and cam home with some pretty bad stories about the Bean. Sol knew I'd better be prepared." Pam said she didn't think th Bean was all bad, however: "They were fast." i But Mark Rainwater, freshman from Harrold, sail "They're inconsistent, Sometimes you would go in there ati they'd have three pretty good things to eat and other timii there wouldn't be anything." Mark became pretty familiar with the food, thougl "Sometimes I'd see the very same food I passed up the othi day sitting right there. I would suggest the food be fres every day and with a better variety." Denise Whiteside, freshman from Abilene, thought tl Bean had gotten worse over the years. Denise had bee eating in the Bean for eight out of the last 10 years. "We came over from Abilene Christian High School t eat lunch and from what I remember, it had gone downhil They seemed to take alot of shortcuts," she said. But not every freshman felt totally negative about tl Bean. Holly Hill, from Locust, NJ., was very realistic aboi the Bean. "I didn't expect anything great. I thought the were a quality cafeteria. They couldn't beat mom's hom cooking, but they did a great job." l Something was done to alleviate the overwhelmid negative majority opinion. A committee was serving as liaison between the student body and the company that rur the Bean, Professional Food Management. jam: Whitehead, junior from Lubbock, served as the chairma "We accepted criticisms, complaints and suggestions fi PPM to take action on," said Whitehead. So goes the difference of opinion. Is the Bean foc distasteful, abhorrent or just the same as it's always been fi the past 77 years? --Elise Smith 1 'C ,e x ..,,, X is
