Thursday Tearoom Time


For my final project in the photojournalism course, I joined a coworker on her weekly visit to a small laboratory tearoom on campus. She first came there in the 70s! A very fun story to do and a chance to get creative with my shots.

Betty Erickson of Ames, IA, speaks about her experience of eating at the Jon Bice Underwood Tearoom for more than 30 years. The Iowa State University campus eatery is a laboratory for students interested in hotel and restaurant management. Students are chefs, waiters, and clerks. Only $6.25 per meal, the Tearoom offers one meal with a single menu four days per week.
