Dining Hall, Kitchen, and Servery of Dining Commons Complete

We are extremely excited to announce that the newly renovated dining hall, kitchen, and servery of the Fisher-Watkins Dining Commons have officially opened! The news broke on Tuesday night through a surprise email from Dr. Bertin to students, faculty, and staff. The Cushing community has enjoyed their meals inside this renewed facility since the following morning, Wednesday, August 29.

Welcome additions to the Dining Commons include an expansive air-conditioned servery, a large stone pizza oven, a centralized salad bar, and an array of nutritional information accompanying each food selection. The dining hall area of the facility retains much of its original architecture and layout. However, the redone floors, fresh paint, and a few other adjustments add up to a much more bright, spacious, and inviting atmosphere.
