Coffee Shop to extend operating hours

October 22, 2010 Latest Print Print

Students and professors with night classes will now have another option for evening food and drinks, according to an e-mail documenting the minutes of the Oct. 15 President’s Advisory Council meeting.

The e-mail stated that the OCCC Coffee Shop will now remain open until 8:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

The decision came after “a comment was made that Food Service closes too early in the evening, leaving students that come … to an evening class without a way to purchase food or refreshment other than from the vending machines.”

A request was then made for the college to look into making a small amount of food available for purchase in the evenings for students and staff, according to the e-mail.

It is the intention to have fresh food options available at the Coffee Shop, the e-mail stated.

The President’s Advisory Council is a monthly meeting headed by President Paul Sechrist. The council includes college faculty and staff, as well as students.
