We truly are living in the future: There’s a PIZZA VENDING MACHING ON CAMPUS.
According to The Lantern
Located in the Morrill Tower North Dining room, the pizza ATM readily dispenses 10-inch pizzas in just three minutes.
Abby Hertzfeld, associate director of operations for Student Life Dining Services, helped bring this saucy innovation to campus, hoping to create an easily accessible late-night dining option to west campus.
So, you’ve heard of fast food (obviously) but if you’re tired of McChickens and large fries late at night, and you’re really hankering for a hot pizza, you no longer have to wait 15-20 minutes for any local pizza shop to make your pie.
(Of course, depending on where you’re at, you may have to make the trek to Morrill Tower, but that’s beside the point.)
Another thing that’s exciting about this pizza vending machine? You can pay with your meal plan or a credit card. So, if you want to try the magnificent pizza vending machine (truly, a gift from beyond), make your way to Morrill from 11 a.m. – 8p.m. while the facility is open (and be on the lookout for those hours to expand in the future):
Currently, the pizza ATM holds about 70 pizzas, according to a press release, and students have the options to choose between cheese or pepperoni pizza. But Hertzfeld said she looks forward to adding more options for toppings soon, as well as extending the hours of operation to 24 hours by fall of 2019.
