Orange chicken looks to take over the Maroon landscape.
Chartwells – the company that oversees Texas A&M on-campus dining – has just confirmed that Panda Express will expand to become the first ‘Mega Panda’.
After constant complaints from students of massive lines and lack of seating, Chartwells approached University Administrators with the idea of installing a Mega Panda in the MSC. In Panda Express franchise terms, a ‘Mega Panda’ is a 3-story Panda Express capable of serving hundreds of guests every hour. Until now, a ‘Mega Panda’ has never actually been built. Panda Officials and Administrators agreed that it was only fitting the first Mega Panda should be installed in the student center of one of the largest Universities in the nation.
The Mega Panda will expand and replace most eating venues in the Memorial Student Center. The entire Lower Level, First Floor Cafeteria Area, and Second Floor meeting rooms and art galleries will be connected via elevators and escalators to form the Mega Panda. Students will find two complete Panda Expresses on each floor as well as fortune cookie dispensers at every exit. A VIP room on the second floor will feature an all-you-can-eat Orange Chicken counter with a $15 entrance fee.
Construction on the Mega Panda is set to begin late this Spring and finish by the return of Fall semester. Students seem eager for this new development. One A&M student was quoted saying “This is such a great move for the school and the students. Although adjusting to construction may be a new and unexpected challenge for us.”
Chartwells says that Panda will still only operate on one register.

A living testament to the fact that the pen is mightier than the sword. We once saw him stab a dude with a pen. There was blood and ink everywhere. It was awesome. He never gets his articles turned in on time though, so some wonder why we keep him around. Did we mention he once stabbed a dude with a pen?
