The convenience store on the west side of campus has finally opened.

After Peet’s Coffee closed in the fall semester of 2017, the small building remained vacant for the remainder of the year.

Now, campus dining has opened an unnamed convenience store, where students can purchase fruit, sandwiches, coffee, soda and other snacks.

The store is located just to the south of the Education Building, in front of the Nursing Building. It will be open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
