After a long summer of renovations, the Sid’s Cafe opened its doors in fall 2009. With the cooperation of the Arts & Science Student’s Union and Food & Beverage Services, a new student friendly space was created to accommodate an array of needs. This space recognizes the changing needs of students, staff and faculty. It was planned to improve efficiency in movement and circulation and to provide better product choices. With its large bright and airy space it becomes a distinct area for meeting, casual study, quick snacks and meals. The seating areas were designed to be customizable to fit both large and small groups.
