Gastronome Interview Report

On Gymnasium, Campus Drive stands The Gastronome on the outskirts of California State University, Fullerton’s (CSUF) campus. This large, glass windowed building acts as the kitchen to all CSUF students who reside in the on-campus dormitories and apartments. The Gastronome is CSUF’s first official cafeteria available to provide on-campus residents with a pre-paid meal plan. On top of this, the Gastronome it is also open to non-campus residents who prefer to pay at the door. This wide spaced modern structure is able to hold 500 people at a time.

If I were you I would stay in school, it is worth it, and with a degree, you will have no setbacks in your career as I did. Going back to school did help a lot in many aspects of understanding safety and management, but there is nothing like hands-on experience to figure it out.” With that, I thanked John for taking the time to be interviewed, just as always he gave me his bright smile and assured it was no
