Doughnuts the Ferrum Way.

So I'm walking in from getting my free Starbucks coffee at the bookstore, and lo and behold who is approaching me but two people offering the opportunity to try new doughnut flavors for campus.

Are you kidding me? Not only will there soon be doughnuts on campus, but the folks in food service are making sure they pick the ones that people actually want.

Now that's service. Correction. That's service the Ferrum College way.

Assistant Catering Manager Alyson Seidel and Vending Manager Chris Foley have already offered the new options to students -- in a taste test, and in the dining hall. This day they were offering members of the administration the chance to opine on whether the creme filled varieties are better than say the blueberry cake option. (They are!)

After tasting, we were asked to complete a survey. It asked which ones we like best, would be purchase the occasional doughnut, and what would we be willing to pay.

So far the favorite seems to be the raspberry jelly-filled with white icing. It is followed closely by the Bavarian Creme filled and the Long John.

All I know is that we will soon have a doughnut option -- The Ferrum way!

  1. This reminds me of the time I stood behind a student in the bookstore, watching Bookstore Manager Patty Sigmon load textbook after textbook into a plastic bag. After the cash transaction, Patty turned to the student and asked, "Now, will you need help carrying these to your car?" That's also service, the Ferrum Way.
