NYLON – Genesee Community College says that the cafeteria at their Batavia campus, dubbed the Cougar Café, will have a grand opening later this month after renovations over the summer.
GCC says that the ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, Sept. 14 at 4 p.m. marks the completion of a revamping project, showcasing upgrades to spacing, flooring, design and layout of the main café and dining options now available to GCC students, faculty and staff.
In cooperation with American Dining Creations, GCC’s food service provider, and the College’s Buildings and Grounds staff, the renovations were completed in just over two months after SUNY approved additional state support, eliminating any funding from Genesee County for the project. GCC Director of Buildings and Grounds Tim Landers was instrumental in coordinating the renovation efforts.
The ceremony will include comments from Dr. James M. Sunser, President of GCC and Ms. Diane T. Torcello, Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees. Photograph opportunities will also be available and light refreshments will conclude the event.
The cafeteria project marks the beginning of an exciting period in the College’s history. GCC will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016 and begin construction on two new buildings as part of the Facilities Master Plan, next spring. The new Student Success Center and College and Community Event Center will be operational by the end of 2017, barring unforeseen conditions.
