Happy Wednesday Nova Nation! It’s a bit of a slow news day, so I figured I’d throw back to one of our “What if Wednesday?” poll questions from a few years back. We’re about a month away from the much heralded 2019 recruiting class moving onto campus for the first time. So here’s a hypothetical:
You’re walking around campus and cross paths with one of Villanova’s incoming freshman basketball players. They have yet to officially check in on campus, and they ask you for a suggestion. Knowing that they’re about to spend all summer on the Shack-Fit diet, they want one more great lunch before their new conditioning begins. Problem is, they don’t have time to go off campus so they need you to recommend a spot on property they can go to. And no, Campus Corner doesn’t count. Where do you send them?
Where should the Class of 2019 have their first ON CAMPUS meal?
