Campus Champion

Auxiliary Services Corporation’s (ASC) dining efforts have a special ingredient and its name is Bill McNamara. The director of dining services oversees all food operations on campus and a team of roughly 140 employees. With more than 6,500 meals served daily in 11 dining facilities, it’s no easy task. But Bill and his team excel at what they do. The most recent National Association of College and University Food Services customer satisfaction survey indicates ASC’s dining services provide better food, service and cleanliness than most colleges offer.
