ELKINS - Davis & Elkins College students and President Chris A. Wood spent an evening together sharing thoughts on improvements to the campus and its offerings during a new event deemed Pizza with the President. Freshman Matt Finn, a resident of Land O Lakes, Florida, came up with the idea that drew students from various residence halls and organizations to the session in Madden Student Center Timms Lounge. One request has already been put into action. Almond milk soon will be among the offerings in Benedum Dining Room. Other suggestions included amendments to the Robbins-Madden Fitness Center hours, an increased number of display monitors and a greater variety of student events on campus. Students also expressed an interest in re-envisioning intramural sports and volunteering for activities in the local community. The group enjoyed pizza, thanks in part to Mama Mia in downtown Elkins. Student meetings with Wood will continue throughout the semester in an effort to gain additional feedback.
