The old pizza was good. The Maverick Bullpen’s new pizza is the popular perfect treat between study sessions.
“It’s one of the best pizzas I’ve personally tasted,” said Kyle Bischoff, Bullpen manager. “I can say I would personally buy it and I’m proud to serve it. We just introduced a brand new cheesy garlic bread with marinara dipping sauce that’s been a hit too. We are still looking to continue to grow and get new things as we keep expanding.”
In addition to the menu upgrade, there are new things to do on the gaming floor. There is a ping pong table, an extra foosball table and a new video game system.
“We just got a PS4 put in yesterday,” said Kyle. “We have FIFA 2017 which is our number one biggest hit game. I won’t say exactly what I’m going to buy, but I’m aggressively looking to purchase lots of new recreational gaming systems along with more hands on games to add to the Bullpen. That’s my goal. Get as much fun activities in this place as I can.”
If video games aren’t your thing, you can grab one of their 30+ board games from the front desk.
The Bullpen also hosts a variety of different events throughout the semester, including concerts.
“The Mocktail parties are ongoing,” said Kyle. “They actually bring a band and it’s free for anyone. Free billiards and free drinks for students. They can play billiards and listen to live music in the background. That happens every semester usually once a month.”
The Bullpen is the perfect place to have a snack and drink between classes. Or, if you closed down the library the night before, the TV room in the back is a great place to catch some z’s.
