The students, faculty and staff at Minnesota School of Business-Shakopee celebrated Cinco de Mayo a few days early this year, with our always popular “Shakopee Commons Café,” a student appreciation event held in the student commons. For the spring quarter event, students enjoyed food and an atmosphere that reflected the Cinco de Mayo holiday.
The party was thrown over both lunch and dinner to celebrate the ambitious and dedicated students at Minnesota School of Business-Shakopee. The student appreciation events allow faculty to join their students for a candlelit meal and to be served by the staff. Staff serve as hosts, servers, and kitchen staff, bringing a full-service restaurant to campus.
The event featured an assortment of Mexican food, decorations, Latin music and even had some staff dressed in sombreros with maracas in hand!
Shakopee Commons Café – Cinco de Mayo Menu
Appetizers: Tortilla chips served with Sheri’s famous salsa
Entrees: Chicken or beef tacos (available in hard or soft shell) or taco salad
Available ingredients: Jalapeños, lettuce, nacho cheese, shredded cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes
The meal was catered by Shakopee’s own Pablos Mexican Restaurant and also featured Dean of Students Sheri Schultz’s famous spicy salsa made of homegrown ingredients from her garden. Sheri made extra salsa for students to enjoy throughout this week during early fall quarter registration.
