Tent of goodies

Students poured into a white tent located in the Marriott Plaza on Thursday and were met with a pleasant surprise.

Upon entering the heated pavilion, students helped themselves to cereal, donuts and cookies, along with a glass of milk or orange juice.

“We just thought, let’s feed the whole campus for a couple of days,” said Lorraine Evans, outreach director for the Associated Students of the University of Utah.

In the afternoon, the juggling club and martial arts student groups as well as a band performed while students helped themselves to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips.

Sam Dean, a junior history and Asian studies major, followed his friend into the tent not knowing what to expect.

“It was a nice surprise,” he said as he helped himself to a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats.

Dan Brinton, a junior in chemical engineering, dished himself a bowl of Fruity Pebbles.

“I’m eating Fruity Pebbles because I’m too cheap to buy my own,” he said.

Before leaving, students helped were given mints and ChapStick.

Since entering college in 2003, Blake Dyer, junior international studies major, said he has seen an improvement in the student government’s efforts to be a bigger presence on campus.

Brinton said he has seen the number of activities on campus increase since arriving at the U in 2000.

“I see (ASUU) out in public more,” he said.

The tent will be open again today. Students can stop in anytime before 2 p.m.
