"LMU and Sodexo as our 25,000th customer marks a significant milestone for us as we continue to help higher education food service operators create safer, smarter operations to address the needs of all students," said Jeff Kiesel, CEO of Restaurant Technologies. "Food insecurity is a growing concern on college campuses and we are glad to have a chance to help address this issue through smarter operations." In an effort to satisfy a range of palates and compete with off-campus dining options, universities are working to expand the entire campus dining experience to offer diverse, health-conscious meals that require cleaner, and fewer, ingredients. LMU and other universities have seen the benefits of using innovative equipment, such as Restaurant Technologies' Total Oil Management system, to deliver a higher quality food product to keep students satisfied. "It's important to us that all our students have access to meals that meet their needs," said Raymond Dennis, associate vice president of auxiliary management and business services, Loyola Marymount University. "We are excited to team up with Restaurant Technologies to ensure we are delivering quality options to our student diners and a safe environment for our student workers." Oil management is a dangerous, labor-intensive job, which is why institutions including Liberty University, the University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University and Rutgers have also adopted the automated system for handling cooking oil. Restaurant Technologies' solution eliminates the need for workers to manage fryer oil at any point during the process, which enables operators to maintain the quality of cooking oil and directly impacts the end product. Universities are also seeing the benefits of how the system significantly reduces the packaging and used oil sent to landfills by recycling used oil into biodiesel or animal feed, enabling universities to elevate sustainability efforts to the growing number of students and parents concerned about sustainability. "Now more than ever, we are aware of not only how technology helps modernize our food service facilities but also enables us to tackle food insecurity among students," said Wassim Boustani, onsite LMU general manager, Sodexo. "Innovative, well-designed equipment allows us to affordably maintain higher standards of safety, elevate sustainability and expand menu offerings to all students."

Political commentator, best-selling author, and lawyer David Limbaugh talked about his journey to accept Christ and how important it is to understand Jesus’ message in the Gospels during Liberty University’s Convocation on Wednesday. President Jerry Falwell introduced Limbaugh and expressed his interest in the subject of the author’s recent book, “The True Jesus.” Falwell shared how he sought to find truth in Jesus’ teachings, rather than the legalistic standards of men. “I went right to the red letters where Jesus spoke,” Falwell said. “Jesus really had harsh words for those who pretended to be better Christians or religious folks in those days.” Limbaugh started off his talk describing how in college he wrestled with his faith in God until he ultimately became a true follower of Christ. While seeking the truth about God’s nature and will, Limbaugh studied philosophy and, eventually, apologetics, reading authors such as C.S. Lewis and Paul Little. “I discovered through this whole process that the evidence for Christianity is overwhelming,” he said. “We don’t rely on blind faith as the secular erroneously believe we do. It is based off a mountain of evidence.” Limbaugh said various people came into his life before he became saved who shared their faith with him and drew him to Christianity. “I was approached by many different people and seeds were planted along my path,” Limbaugh said. “As evangelists, don’t be discouraged if there is no apparent evidence that anything has occurred. Remember, it’s not about us, and you never know the impact you can make on someone’s life and the ecumenical effect of many seeds that have been planted in that person’s path.” Limbaugh said Christianity is more than believing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, but accepting the importance of how much God loved us to do that. Whether they were believers or unbelievers, Limbaugh encouraged students to read the Gospels with an open and seeking mindset. “The ultimate apologetic is the Bible,” he said. “Let us not try to conform Jesus Christ to the culture, but let us reform to Jesus Christ.” Students in Convocation also heard a fiery message from FOX News television personality Judge Jeanine Pirro. At the end of the event, Limbaugh and Pirro answered questions in a roundtable discussion with Falwell and Senior Vice President for Spiritual Development David Nasser.
