A Cooler Water Cooler Comes to USNA

Two Evive Stations are now available to midshipmen.

An Evive Station is kind of like the water fountain of the future. Users buy a reusable stainless steel bottle at the Midshipmen Store. At the machine, they purchase a 1-month, 3-month or 5 month subscription that provides endless refills of water or fruit-infused water.


The machine washes and sanitizes the bottle and cap each time it's refilled, making it a convenient option for college students always on the go.

No one's more on the go than midshipmen. That's why Phillip Allison, deputy director of Naval Academy Business Services, and Eric Lindstrom, executive chef at the Naval Academy Club, instantly thought of bringing the system to the academy when they saw it at a trade show last year.

"Knowing the number of water bottles on campus coupled with the sanitation and green environment, it just seemed like a no-brainer," said Allison.

There are two stations on the Yard, one in Steerage - the Bancroft Hall cafe that caters to midshipmen - and one in the MacDonough Hall cardio room. The machines are here for the semester on a trial basis. If they're popular, the Business Services Division will consider adding more machines around the Yard for the midshipmen, faculty and staff.

"We're going to let the student body tell us where they'd like to see them," said Allison.


The Midshipmen Store held a tasting of the different flavors Jan. 15.

"I think it's really good," said Midshipman 1st Class Brooke Merchant, after getting her own bottle. "It's pretty easy. You just put the bottle in there and follow the directions. It didn't take long, and it cleans it which is nice."
