The mozzarella sticks in the Regattas dining hall are delightful. That’s something CNU brochures don’t tell you. The eyes of hundreds of students light up when they read that these savory snacks are being served. Hoards of culinary connoisseurs migrate to the server line and ask “Can I just have lots of mozzarella sticks, please?” With a pleasant smile from the line chef, each student is served their delicious battered mozzarella.
Now, what’s so special about a mozzarella stick, you ask? Well, besides it being tasty, I suppose it’s more of what it represents. At CNU, there are tons of “mozzarella sticks.” These are the little things that students fall in love with and anticipate happily each day. The first little thing I fell in love with was the perpetual games of volleyball and basketball near the clock tower. Rain or shine, these games almost always seem to be going on. The best part? Everyone is welcome, whether you want to play or just cheer on the players. Similarly, when you’re struggling to fumble the door open to get into the building, there’s a pretty good chance the front desk assistant will open it for you with the click of a button.
CNU is a place to learn, to grow and to love, but most of all, it’s a place to call home.
