No, this is not some wacky engineering project, just an effort by RIT's Dining Services Department to improve their offerings. According to the Reporter Online, a team from the department is making a number of changes to the on-campus food services, and one of their goals is to come up with “'Rochester’s best pizza' through student feedback and a little experimenting. 'I don’t want to see anymore of these [Domino’s pizza boxes] on my campus!' [Executive Director of Dining Services Patty] Spinelli joked."
Certainly a worthwhile goal. If there are any RIT students out there, I'd love to hear how the project is going, pizzawise. In the meantime, though, Spinelli and her team may want to take advantage of all the engineers in training there - check out this website and you'll see what I mean.
I wonder, by the way, how Paradiso Pizza feels about this, being located on campus and all.
