Liberty University dining hall closing after 31 years

Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., held a bittersweet farewell party for “The Rot” right before final exams this semester.

After 31 years in the Reber-Thomas building, the beloved dining hall is moving across campus to much larger digs, leaving behind lots of memories. Many current students have parents who attended the college and dined there, and some of the foodservice team has been with The Rot since opening day.

The Rot was so named because at the time it opened, Marriott managed the dining operations at Liberty. Since then, the college has grown, with student enrollment projected to top 20,000 in five years, said Duke Davis, district manager for current foodservice provider Sodexo.
