An update from Tien, a member of the Residential Commons Leadership Corps and a second-year student majoring in advertising and public relations: 

If you’re anything like me, food is a really huge part of your life. From discovering new restaurants to exploring different ways to spice up old recipes, there is never a moment that delicious, quality food is not involved in my life. A couple weeks ago, some people from dining services gave the Residential Commons Leadership Corps a preview into what the new Arnold Dining Commons would be like.


The new dining commons will be based around the idea of “Fresh Food on Campus.” Students will have the opportunity to not only eat indoors, but also outdoors in designated court yards. The Arnold Commons will have multiple types of seating to cater to any size group you are eating with. They will have areas that are suitable for large groups as well as more intimate seating areas for one on one meetings.

The Arnold Dining Commons will provide an assortment of food ranging from pizzas fresh out of the brick oven to omelets and stir fry made on the Mongolian grill. No matter what your dietary needs or favorite foods are, the Arnold Dining Commons is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
