Health-conscious students will have options beyond the Huddle’s limited organic and gluten-free options when Whole Foods opens in Mishawaka in the fall. After investigating the South Bend area for years, the high-end grocery chain will take over the 24,000 square foot space on Grape Road formerly occupied by Borders, according to the South Bend Tribune. Sophomore Kelly Cronin said she is greatly looking forward to shopping at the new Whole Foods. “There’s so much good food there,” Cronin said. Cronin said she suffers from Celiac disease, which restricts her to a gluten-free diet. Although the dining hall offers special meals for her, Cronin said she is excited to take advantage of Whole Foods’ vast inventory of gluten-free products. “Whole Foods has some really great gluten-free breads and muffins, and they’re not in the refrigerator,” Cronin said. “Whereas the gluten-free stuff — at least at South [Dining Hall] — is in a little fridge, and you have to heat it up.” Cronin said the presence of Whole Foods might also improve the gluten-free options provided in the dining halls. “[Whole Foods] is going to allow the dining hall to offer more services because they won’t have to dig or order or do special things to get us food,” she said. Besides opening up possibilities for the dining hall, Cronin said having a Whole Foods would give her more options for snacks and meals in her room. “[Whole Foods has] better gluten-free cereal,” Cronin said. “Before I was diagnosed [with Celiac disease], I used to eat a lot of cereal. Gluten-free Chex is great, but sometimes I want something other than Chex.” Junior Connor White said he is excited for Whole Foods to open because of the variety of organic foods sold there. “I try to find more organic foods to eat here,” White said. “I’m stoked [for Whole Foods] because that’s where I do all my grocery shopping back home.” White said despite Whole Foods’ notoriously high price point, organic food is cheaper there than at other local food stores. “[I’m excited about] getting organic produce that’s not $5 for an apple,” White said. “[Whole Foods’ price point] is better than any of the other health food stores around here. Obviously it’s a little bit more expensive than Meijer, but I’m willing to spend that much extra if it’s better food.” A large part of student body president and vice president elect Brett Rocheleau and Katie Rose’s campaign platform was opening a high-end grocery in Eddy Street Commons. Now that Whole Foods is opening in Mishawaka, Rocheleau said he and Rose are entertaining different ideas for a new store in Eddy Street Commons. “Now we’re going to … really open it up to the students and do more surveys to see what the students would like to be on Eddy Street,” he said, “as well as communicate with South Bend and the mayor’s office to see what they think would be a nice place to open up there.” Rocheleau said Student Senate’s Constituent Services Committee will send out email surveys to students regarding not only a new store in Eddy Street Commons, but also a new LaFortune Student Center restaurant to replace Sbarro’s when its contract expires next year. Cronin said she thinks student government should not abandon plans to open a specialty grocery store in Eddy Street Commons. “Having some sort of grocer would be really nice within walking distance [of campus] so you don’t have to have a car,” she said. “[Whole Foods] is not on the bus route, which is not so convenient.” Instead of Sbarro’s, Cronin said she would like to see a Chinese restaurant in LaFortune, such as Pei Wei, P.F. Chang’s or a more health-conscious establishment. “For those midnight munchies, we already have Reckers and the Huddle,” Cronin said. “I think we’re pretty well set on our high-caloric junk food.”
Robert A. Schulz, a professor of biological sciences at Notre Dame, died Saturday, the University announced in a press release Wednesday. He was 64 years old.Schulz became a member of the Notre Dame faculty in 2007, the release said. Before joining Notre Dame, he earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina in 1976 followed by a doctoral degree in biochemistry from Georgetown University. He spent 22 years working at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.“Notre Dame was lucky to recruit Dr. Schulz from the prestigious MD Anderson Cancer Research Center, where he established a strong research program,” Kevin Vaughan, associate professor of biological sciences, said in the release. “Dr. Schulz quickly positioned himself as a leader in biological sciences at Notre Dame, and he improved the visibility of Notre Dame research at the national level through his outreach.”At Notre Dame, Schulz designed a developmental biology course for undergraduates. He was known as an advocate for graduate student research projects during annual research seminars, Vaughan said.“He always held his graduate students to a pretty high level of expectation,” David Hyde, a biological sciences professor and Notre Dame’s Kenna Director of the Zebrafish Research Center, said in the release. “He wanted them to be able to generate data that would lead to meaningful research publications that would have a significant impact.”At the University of Texas, Schulz’s work included research on processes of blood formation and immunity in humans and fruit flies, particularly of the Drosophila genus. His work led to better understandings of congenital heart defects, leukemias and cancer stem cells research. Schulz received a grant from the National Institutes of Health in 2016 to study “the Drosophila immune system’s response to stress.”“[Schulz] used state-of-the art genetic approaches to answer fundamental questions about how the immune system develops in the fruit fly,” Hyde said. “He was still actively pursuing his research, for which he was well-respected in the Drosophila community worldwide.”Schulz is also remembered for loving to travel to Rome with his wife.“They always enjoyed going every year and wanted to see the Pope,” Hyde said. “At one point when they made that trip, he was within a couple of feet of the Pope during a procession at the Vatican — and that was very memorable to him, that he was that close.”A visitation will be held Friday at Kaniewksi Funeral Homes from 4 to 8 p.m., followed by a funeral Mass at 11 a.m. Saturday in Christ the King Catholic Church.Tags: biological sciences, biology, Robert Schulz

Lekoil, an oil and gas exploration and development company with a focus on West Africa, has announced that David Robinson, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, is leaving the Board, and the company, with immediate effect.The company said that Valentine Ejiogu, Lekoil’s Financial Controller, will be assuming leadership of the company’s financial function until the company appoints a new Chief Financial Officer to the Board. The search for a new Chief Financial Officer, to be based either at the company’s operational office in Lagos or in London, will begin immediately and the company will issue a further update in due course, Lekoil said in the press release.David Robinson, the leaving CFO said: “I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve in such a short period of time. As Lekoil prepares to move to the next stage of its development as an oil producing company, the time commitment for the CFO in Lagos will increase. With a family in Asia, this was going to become increasingly challenging and so I have decided this is the right the time to move on.”Samuel Adegboyega, Lekoil’s Chairman, said: “The Board would like to thank Dave for his contributions to Lekoil and most especially its May 2013 IPO. The Board and Dave recognised that we now need different skills as we make the transition to a producing oil and gas business.”[mappress mapid=”2069″]
