During construction McDonald’s is open on the Hillel Place side and the front is planned to open in under 2 weeks. Before you go to the cashier there is a computer you can order at just like the Manhattan ones.

The college has a new water fountain with a senor for you to put a water bottle under it as in the one in old Ingersoll’s lobby.

Ovi’s Restaurant opened on Hillel Place were Quizno’s was. It has a different menu of more American dishes then its other locarion near the BC Theatre. The new Starbuck like Coffee Bean may have put Quizno’s out of business. Dallas BBQ did not put Applebee’s out of business so some times the market has room to expand.
