When Furman students return to campus August 18, a set of procedures and practices will be deployed for maintaining the health and safety of the entire campus community. Becky Vuksta, director of auxiliary services at Furman, spoke to The New York Times about plans for dining services. Working with Furman’s food service provider Bon Appétit and facility services, Vuksta is retooling the dining hall for social distancing, adding new grab-and-go meal stations and setting up a pop-up restaurant outside Duke Library that will serve street food from around the world.

The Times also spoke to Furman Asian studies major Ethan Hodge ’21, one of several dozen Furman students who remained on campus after the pandemic forced most of the university’s 2,700 students to return home. The story was also picked up by the Chicago Tribune and The Baltimore Sun.
