The article reports on the decision of Aramark to build a tent as a temporary solution to the overcrowding of students at the University of Alabama dining facility in Tuscaloosa during peak hours. The tent was erected to accommodate all students for the semester after the delays in building the university's Lakeside dining facility. The tent can handle 150 to 200 diners a day. The company used yard signs and post advertising on the Internet to inform students about the tent.
