Are You a UMWFoodie?

Erin Wysong, UMW References and Sciences Librarian, became a UMWFoodie during it’s “grand opening” promotion and won an Amazon Fire 7 tablet! Campus Dining created this new text messaging group in January in order to provide UMW students, faculty and staff with timely and valuable information about dining services.

UMWFoodies will be the first to know about free food sampling events, dining discounts, special events, and changes to Campus Dining operational hours due to dangerous weather conditions.  Rose Benedict, Campus Dining Marketing Manager, will be the only person sending out messages via this new group, and she promises that messages will be limited to once or twice a week. The only exceptions to that would be when bad weather necessitated multiple changes in dining operational hours.

Did you know that Campus Dining gave out free food samples twice this month and that another sampling is scheduled for next week? UMWFoodies learn about these and other special events and offers!  To join simply text “UMWFoodies” to 82257, then reply “yes” to the confirmation text.  For more information contact Rose Benedict at rbenedic@UMW.edu.
