For Immediate Release

Students returning to class for the spring semester were greeted by the long- awaited opening of Lava Landing. The combination cyber-cafe, restored game room and renovated Information Booth opened on a limited basis on January 28, 2002. The official grand opening will be held at a later date.

The cyber-cafe features 10 computer stations equipped with a printer station using Pharos, the card system used in the Library. Unlike the existing Campus Center computer stations located on the second floor, and dining room, pages printed from the cyber-cafe can be picked up on site. Visitors to the cyber-cafe will eventually be able to enjoy selected Starbucks coffees and teas along with a variety of popular confections. The dining area, initially confined to inside the cafe, is being expanded with the removal of the temporary storage on the game room lanai.

Cyber-cafe hours are from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Friday. Weekend hours may be added later, depending on student demand.
