Dining on a college campus is essential for students. It’s convenient and gives them a nice break from their classes.
A recent remodel in the Academic Center on the WSU Spokane campus resulted in the Bistro Box-operated Fresh Plate Cafe opening at the beginning of the spring semester. Roast House Coffee provides coffee for students, staff and faculty as well.
We celebrated the two with a ribbon cutting celebration today, with students, staff and faculty attending.
As an urban campus, there are dining options close to campus. But for some time, dining options on campus were limited. The Fresh Plate Cafe has a location in the Nursing Building, and there was a snack shack in the Academic Center – the main building on campus and a place where many students go to study and hang out. Beginning last fall, remodel work began to make room for the cafe and lounge area. With classes continuing in the evening, it is important to have dining options for those students. That’s why the Fresh Plate Cafe is open until 8:00 p.m., Monday – Thursday. It closes at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays.
The University’s investment in its student experience here has resulted in a brand new cafe and lounge, complete with healthy food and organic coffee, enhancing the student experience on the WSU Spokane campus.
