I heard Five Guys will be in the old Golden Corral with Starbucks.
I’ve never actually been to a 5 guys
I've been to one, down in Georgia. Wasn't impressed, but maybe it was just that location. If it shows up in Macomb I'll definitely give it a try or two.

Old Ponderosa, actually, but I have heard that rumor as well.

It's the place in front of Walmart right next to BWW.

Re: Electrical Grid?

Does anyone know anything about electrical power improvements to be made at WIU/Macomb campus or was I just imagining things? I seem to remember that I saw it listed as a part of what Dr. Thomas listed as his accomplishments! ;) jc Yeah, there was (I didn't remember it, but my wife did). A few year...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

Ok, folks. So, this thread has been going for about 3 1/2 years now, and gone through a few different rounds of cuts and layoffs. We now have a new governor, new budget, new board of trustees, and will have a new university president. I'm going to go ahead and lock it down now. Feel free to continue...

Re: Forgottonia Brewing - New Craft Brewery coming to Macomb

In case you hadn't been following things closely, Forgottonia Brewing opened Wednesday evening. https://twitter.com/WesternILUniv/status/1139620895671148544 They've got locally brewed beers, a few "guest" beers from other area craft breweries, root beer, and a couple of house-made flavored sodas. Ne...

Re: New football building

Let’s see how fast things move now. I think a lot depends on whether the interim/incoming is a "sports-minded" guy or gal. Agreed. Also, forward thinking vs Conservative (in vision not politics). I think having Bainter reinstated is likely more beneficial for this. I heard a lot of the BIG donors f...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

No bring in a fresh face don’t hire someone with current ties to the university. I agree. A whole new, fresh, perspective is needed. I also agree, but just for reference, the new provost would also be that. He has no connection to Western and won't even be starting here until July 1: http://www.wiu...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

OK, I get the whole tenured thing; but he was on a year to year contract. So, if they'd just not renewed his contract, would they have beat the 2 year payout? Or am I misinformed on the year to year thing? I think we decided that the year-to-year thing was incorrect. I don't know how the contract w...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

Guesses on Interim Pres? Idk, but one of my coworkers mentioned that the new incoming provost seemed like he wanted to use the position as a stepping stone to become a university president. Could be a very short step, depending on how things go. So his tenure was earned via his position as presiden...
