June 29, 2010 (Raleigh, NC)—University Dining launched Atrium Renovation Project, a blog that will track the transformation progress of the Atrium Food Court located in the heart of North Carolina State’s Campus, located on the lower level of D.H. Hill Library, adjacent to
The blog posts will document the $4 million construction project until its completion in August 2011. The public can remain informed during the renovation process with pictures and updated posts.
We Want Food!, the blog’s first post addresses the student’s primary concern: “Will we be able to get food during construction?” The blog serves as a tool to keep students informed to avoid any confusion during the one year renovation. Blog readers can log on to access the first pictures of the construction and to stay informed.
University Dining’s Chick-fil-A franchise will continue to be the centerpiece of the Atrium, complemented by several new “micro-restaurants” in the serving area, including a new Asian/sushi concept, pasta/pizza concept, custom salad station, and custom wrap station. In addition, University Dining will debut its new Wolfpack-to-Go section with fresh-made items to suit those who want to grab something quick and keep moving when a tight class schedule dictates. Seating in the new Atrium will increase from 370 to 435 in the expanded 18,000 square-foot space.
Students who enjoyed Freshens smoothies and frozen yogurt at the Atrium will be glad to learn that is being relocated to Talley Student Center Food Court. It is expected to open by mid-to-late August.
During the renovation process, Students will be able to access food at the Atrium. The former seating area will be the temporary location for Chick-fil-A and Li’l Dinos sandwiches.
