-released by OPSU Campus Communications 03-29-2006

Goodwell, Okla. - Oklahoma Panhandle State University seeks to provide a low-cost, quality education in a friendly yet collegial atmosphere. Small class sizes and caring faculty provide every student the opportunity for success. Even though placed in a rural setting, OPSU offers a number of amenities typically found in larger areas. The Aggie apartments offer a modern alternative for campus living, and the Noble Activity and Cultural Center welcomes students to take advantage of exercise as well as the opportunity to socialize.

OPSU also offers students, employees and the whole community a variety of enticing food selections seven days a week through Sodexho, the campus food service provider. Anyone may enjoy the cafeteria’s diverse selection of meal and side dishes for a reasonable price. Monday through Saturday, the cafeteria is open for breakfast from 7:30-9, for lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and for supper from 5-6:30. On the weekends, supper is served from 5-6 on Saturday an d Sunday, and a Sunday brunch is offered from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Patrons may eat all they like for $4.50 for breakfast, $5.25 for lunch and $6.25 for supper.

The Aggie Grille serves the only Starbucks coffee available within 100 miles and also sells Tazo tea. They offer short order items including hamburgers and chicken wraps. In addition, breakfast burritos, salads, a soup of the day, pizza, plus chicken and tuna salad are available for those short on time. According to Daniel Ghrayyeb, Sodexho manager, “A good lunch in the Grille is less than $6.00.” The Aggie Grille is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. through 1:30 p.m.

One of the best kept secrets remains Sodexho’s catering service. The experienced staff offers a freshly cooked, professionally catered meal for up to 300 people. Many local clubs and businesses use the OPSU Student Union Ballroom for meetings and enjoy banquets. A wide variety of menu items are available, and smoked meat tops the list of requested items. Ghrayyeb said, “We smoke our own prime rib and brisket and maintain a variety of woods to smoke the meat, such as hickory and mesquite. Some customers request the smoked entrees again and again. Our catering service is versatile, and we’re accustomed to working within a customer’s budget.”
