Hi! Kaleigh, here! Sometimes we could use a change of scenery; to get out and get away. This can be hard as a college student. Between classes, friends, and studying it can be hard to find time, let alone deciding where to go! At least this was the mindset of Freshman Kaleigh. As it turns …
Hey everyone! My name is Natalie and I’m one of the wellness interns here are Chartwells this fall. That’s right, it’s officially fall y’all! You know what that means? Pumpkin everything! So, it’s no surprise that Pumpkin just happens to be this month’s superfood. And let me tell you, I am veryyy into all things …
I love you Coffee. I never understand how my roommates wake up so early and their explanation is “my body just woke me up.” I always nod and reply with “oh wow” or “that’s weird,” but in my head all I can think about is how made up that sounds. For me, morning is my …

Hey y’all! I’m Alex Compton, and I’m a Marketing Intern here at Chartwells. I’m from Overland Park, Kansas and am studying hospitality and event planning. When I’m not at work or class you can catch me at Zeta, hanging with friends, or binge watching Netflix. Some things about me: passionate for Christ, big fan of dogs, can take multiple naps a day and still sleep 10 hours a night, loves ice cream.
Hey everyone! My name is Natalie Miller, and I am Junior at the University of Arkansas majoring in Human Nutrition and Dietetics along with a minor in Human Development. I am one of Chartwells’ Wellness Interns and I could not be more thrilled! I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and I can honestly say that’s where my passion for food began. My friends can vouch that baking and spending time with my two Boxer puppies are two of my favorite pastimes!
Hi! My name is Allix Ice and I am a senior majoring in human nutrition and hospitality innovation with a concentration in dietetics with a minor in psychology. I am the Sustainability Intern for Chartwells so I spend most of my time in the Freight Farm harvesting and planting lettuce. My ideal life is to graduate, become a registered dietitian working in patient care, move to a mountain town and own two giant dogs. You can always find me snacking on something, I am always hungry—my favorites foods are chocolate chip cookies, brussel sprouts and just about anything with carbs in it!
Hi guys! My name is Kaleigh, and I’m a senior dietetics major here at the U of A. I am from Austin, Texas, but think Fayetteville is a much cooler place to live. I enjoy spending my time outside, either hiking at Devil’s Den or hanging out at Lake Fayeteville and Wilson Park. I love finding the hidden places in this city, but think the public library doesn’t get the credit it deserves. (Did you know there is free yoga there on Monday nights?!). As always, I spend a lot of my time cooking and finding new recipes. My favorite herb to cook with is lavender. It adds so much sweetness and puts a twist on recipes. When I’m not cooking, my favorite food group is Mexican, as any true Texan would say! I hope you enjoy and are inspired to be creative in your food choices through this blog. See y’all around town!
Hey y’all I’m Erica! I’m in my final year here at the University of Arkansas double majoring in advertising/public relations and international studies. Growing up in St. Louis, and moving to New Orleans right before I started here at the U of A I was basically required to love food, humidity and Cardinals baseball (I’m still working on humidity…). When I’m not working or studying you can find me hiking, cooking, watching Netflix or reading.
Hi, my name is Emily and I’m the newest Sustainability Intern! I’m a senior Supply Chain Major with a minor in Marketing. I’m super excited to be working with Chartwells, especially in the Freight Farm! I’m from Plano, TX, but I have loved my 4 years in Fayetteville. Some of my favorite NWA things are running on the trails, visiting Crystal bridges, and eating at the Farmers Table!
What’s up guys! I’m Gage, a marketing intern here at Chartwells! I am a senior from Oklahoma City majoring in Advertising and Public Relations. Some things I love are spending time in the Ozarks, playing disc golf and hanging with the boys. I’m super excited for this year and the fun things happening here at #foodpigsooie
