John Wise, associate vice president of hospitality & auxiliary services, conducts a tour of the North Dining Hall.

Although the new North Dining Hall is not complete, sections of the new building are open beginning today (Tuesday, Dec. 3), and the campus community is invited to come and check out the new facility.

The new Starbucks and the P.O.D. Market on the lower level will be available from 7 a.m.-9 p.m., and the general seating throughout the building will be available 24 hours a day (including during final exams this semester).

There are a few remaining items to complete for full opening in January, including the completion of the two primary food venues – Bistro ’34 and The Hilltop market – as well as landscaping, fixture installations and final furniture delivery.

To support the College’s initiative to provide increased study space, the building’s general seating will be available for 24-hour study, social and community use during the final two weeks of the semester, and this availability will continue in the spring semester.

“I am truly appreciative of the collaboration with John Wise and others who have helped to make this new dining facility and its 24 hour accessibility possible,” said Jacque Fetrow, dean of the College.
