The Dining Hall will undergo a makeover starting next fall. The campus’ project manager for the renovation, David Reeves (Design & Construction), explains that it will be a comprehensive renovation of the entire facility, with many new features. The interior will be reconfigured, and it will be “more student-centered and customer-friendly.” On the second floor, the concept of one large cafeteria will be replaced by “a lot more dining venues – perhaps 11, [presenting] a lot of choices.” Both the east and west entrances will have new stairways to the second floor. The new west side exterior will feature a large archway and also a glass canopy. Some seating is expected outside. And open-air balconies, with seating, can be enjoyed on the second floor.
