Chester’s Place

The former Lane conference room has been undergoing some drastic renovations this summer. Instead of a bland conference room, the new area will be a cozy coffee shop and meeting place for students. Named “Chester’s Place” after benefactors Dale and Ann Fowler’s pet cat, it sounds like it will be everything the stereotypical cat is not: warm, welcoming and full of caffeine.
Bob Grinnell, vice President for development, described how the area is expected to look upon completion: A coffee bar will be in the corner, where students can enjoy a beverage of choice; booths will be along the sides; and tables will fill the main area. He says it will have “a low ceiling, kind of like an old tavern.”
The project is expected to be completed by Homecoming Weekend in October.
