It’s 11 or 12 o’clock on a Friday night and you are craving some late night food. The Upper Deck is closed, a Sheetz run is out of the question for obvious reasons and the Ramen Noodles or Easy Mac you have in your room are simply not sufficient.

An easy call to x8140 was the obvious choice: Kohler’s Pizza. One bite yielded instant satisfaction for the late-night cravings.

On January 30th, the Class of 2010 stepped up to fill the Kohler’s void by teaming up with Bon Appetit, Nicolletti’s Pizza and Pepsi to bring pizza delivery back to campus.

Orders started coming in early and did not stop until pizza dough ran out less than two hours later.

I cannot even begin to convey the pure excitement of the students when I knocked on their doors holding a steaming box of goodness. One student made me wait while she sampled the pizza. One bite of the greasy, cheesy pizza and the result was clear: we passed the taste test.

If the success of the Class of 2010 Pizza Delivery is any indicator, the campus would like to see weekend pizza delivery come back. In fact, students even offered to sign a petition in support of campus pizza delivery.

Maybe your dreams are about to come true. The Class of 2010’s business plan is being used as a model for various other clubs and groups. I see this as a complete win-win situation: students get their pizza and clubs can make a few hundred dollars.

With continued support from the students, I am confident pizza delivery will slowly work its way back into St. Mary’s culture as the hallmark of weekend shenanigans.
