Every Longwood Student's Guide To The New Food Options at Upchurch
Longwood University

The Longwood University Upchurch center recently had its grand opening on Friday, October 26. The opening of Upchurch provides students with a central area to study, hold club meetings, and participate in campus events held in the new auditoriums. Along with the extra study space, there are game rooms for students to have a fun area to resort to at night, or even better, in between classes. Inside Upchurch, there are four new food options for students to choose from: Panda Express, Au Bon Pain, Farm Grill, and Starbucks.

1. Au Bon Pain

This place Is a popular option with their main menu choices of various sandwich wraps, bagels, and bakery items. The smoothies are also delicious and one of the few smoothie options on campus. The egg sandwiches are delicious, however, these options can be a bit pricey. The typical price of an egg sandwich ranges around five dollars, meanwhile the price of a regular sandwich is around 8 dollars. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for healthier options to spend their Bonus Dollars on.

2. Farm Grill

This place is a great new option on campus. First off, the menu includes options such as various gourmet burgers, chicken sandwiches, grilled cheese, and vegetarian options. Overall, the food here is a great dinner option, and one of the few options on campus that serves red meat. The burgers here tend to be a little burnt due to the mass order rush, but if you go at an off time, they are usually prepared better. Another plus is that they except meal exchanges, which you can use your meal swipes on if you are on a meal plan. Overall, I am thrilled they brought this to campus and I think out of all the new options, Farm Grill is where you get your money's worth.

3. Panda Express

Out of all the new options, Panda Express usually has the longest line at dinner time. The food is delicious with the plate option of one entree and a side ranging around seven dollars, however, if you want more food then you should expect to pay around 11 dollars for two main options and one side. This is a great alternative to getting a meal at the dining hall because you can get both chicken and rice, and possibly a vegetable all in one meal. Overall, this was a smart option to bring to campus.

4. Starbucks 

Last but certainly not least, Starbucks. The drinks are overall pretty decent quality for a campus Starbucks. The interior of the building is beautiful. The shop is designed for a social atmosphere with various tables for students to sit at and have discussions and meeting or to just grab a cup of coffee with a friend. Overall, the drinks are prepared well and efficiently, however, the lines tend to run long. So if you plan on going before class, make sure to allow yourself plenty of time.

Happy eating!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
