The newly-constructed building will house more than 200 faculty and staff, as well as its many students. Avalon’s opening will coincide with the start of the Fall 2018 semester.
The 700-square-foot location will have a café counter, around 30 seats, and retail sales. It will open early and stay open late to accommodate the busy lives of students, faculty, and staff. Among the items the café will offer include breakfast sandwiches, coffee beverages, baked goods, and grab-and-go items like sandwiches and salads.
