After a three-month hiatus, Georgia College premiered its new student dining hall, The Max, Thursday as students moved onto campus for fall 2011 semester.

The $3 million makeover created new dining stations offering a variety of cuisines and added seating areas at each station.

“The new layout creates a better flow and more seating space,” said Kyle Cullars, assistant vice president for auxiliary services and enterprise development. “It’s much more convenient. Students can choose their meals, eat in that same area, and save time.”

The 20,700-square-foot dining hall on the corner of Hancock and Clarke streets serves approximately 3,400 meals a day.

Students can choose from sandwiches or wraps at Sinclair’s Sandwiches; pizza and pasta at Milla D’Villa; salads and fruits at Vidalia’s; meat and three or burgers and fries at the 441 Diner; international cuisine at Magellan’s; and/or breakfast foods all day.

The dining hall employs 30 full-time and 100 part-time staff, including chefs, cooks, servers, and managers, representing a 20 percent increase in part-time employees from the previous year.

Community members and visitors also are invited to dine in The Max, using cash or credit/debit cards.

Dining hours are 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

“We have servings to please all palates and scrumptious desserts,” Cullars said. “We offer a little something for everyone.”
