This article focuses on the renovated Woodworth Commons food emporium at the Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. The new Woodworth Commons features a grill, pizza and Italian station, deli, patisserie and Comfort Zone for down-home cooking. The director of the campus dining services also created a walk-around grill station that could do both Mexican and Asian cookery. Woodworth Commons, which reopened in August 2007 after renovation, is a very contemporary, retail-oriented facility, replacing an early-1980s display platform.
