Murray State at UCSO goes mobile with food truck meal offerings on campus

9/26/2017

Murray State College at Ardmore’s University Center of Southern Oklahoma (UCSO) is bringing food to campus via local vendors.  Vendors have signed up to bring food trucks on campus each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

To kick off the concept of food trucks on campus, “It’s all Good” began in mid-September by offering both breakfast and lunch on Mondays to students from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.  Menu items include burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, catfish platters and tacos.  Double T’s Grab and Go food truck will serve campus students on Wednesdays.  Span Devu food truck, owned by MSC alumnus Desmine Austin, will serve food on campus each Thursday.

“This an exciting new opportunity for MSC students in Ardmore.  Students are usually hungry, and mobile vendors have been great about providing our students with unique offerings at affordable prices,” MSC President Joy McDaniel said.

Approximately 1,500 Murray State College students are enrolled through the UCSO.  The UCSO, which provides a location for students from MSC and SOSU to take classes in Ardmore, recently moved into a new building at 2901 Mt. Washington.

“We’re thrilled that students are enjoying food trucks on campus,” MSC Director of Academic Advisement and Ardmore Services Paula Henley said.

Continued service is contingent on numbers of customers served, and Henley encourages students to check out the new service.

“The offerings have been great, and students really like this unique take on food service.  I’m encouraging everyone to give this new idea a try,” Henley added.

Food truck service schedules can be found on campus, and students are encouraged to stop by the MSC office for more detailed information.  For questions, contact Paula Henley at phenley@mscok.edu or 580-319-0316.
