Lower Eastern Shore National History Day: Lunch and Things to Do at the Local Contest

The Lower Eastern Shore National History Day contest includes Dorchester, Somerset, and Wicomico Counties and is sponsored by the Salisbury University Libraries and the Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts at Salisbury University.


Here are your lunch options:

1. If you brought your lunch, you can eat it in the Café in the Academic Commons (unfortunately, the food service in the Academic Commons is closed for lunch on Saturdays, but the seating area is available) or the Atrium Lounge in Perdue Hall.  Vending machines are available on the second floor of the Café and the first floors of Perdue and Fulton. 

2. There is an on-campus Chick-fil-A.  It is on the first floor of the Guerrieri Student Union (please note, this is a different building than the Guerrieri Academic Commons—it is on the southwest side of campus).  It opens at 11 a.m.  You also can buy lunch in the Commons Dining Hall, which serves lunch starting at noon, and is in the building adjacent to the Guerrieri Student Union; lunch is served buffet-style and costs $14.70 plus tax for ages 12 and up, $7.90 plus tax for ages 4 to 11, and free for ages 3 and under.

3. There are numerous sit-down and fast-food restaurants on U.S. 13 Business within a few blocks of campus.  Sea Gull Square, just south of the Academic Commons, has a Jimmy John’s and a Chinese restaurant called Chuar.  1400 South, just south of Sea Gull Square, has several restaurants.  Also on Rte. 13 Business near the Academic Commons are Starbucks, Wendy's, Cook Out, Five Guys, Pat’s Pizza, Mediterranean Grill, Chipotle, and other restaurants.



Things to do:

1. View National History Day entries:

a.You are welcome to view the documentary entries from approximately 9:XX a.m. to 1X:XX a.m. in Perdue XXX and XXX or the performance entries in TBA at XX:XX a.m.   Please enter and exit only between presentations.

b.Exhibit entries will be open for public viewing from approximately 12 noon to 1:00 in the Assembly Hall on the fourth floor of the Guerrieri Academic Commons.

3. Check out our library exhibits and student research posters: You will find panels from past exhibits in the hallways of the GAC 4th floor and some impressive research posters by SU students on the 2nd and 4th floors of the GAC.

4. We recognize that some people may want to leave after they’ve been interviewed by the judges and come back for the awards ceremony at 1 p.m., which is fine.
