Student center and dining facility renovation

Originally built as a student center, LaCava Hall was gradually altered to accommodate faculty offices as the college grew. Over time, student activity space became fragmented and ill-functioning.

CBT’s renovation included the removal of offices lining the dining hall, allowing the insertion of large windows to transmit light into the gathering space. A small stage was added to create a venue for special events and more formal functions. As a means to alleviate long student lines for the dining hall, CBT reconfigured the space from a cafeteria style to a marche arrangement, whereby students make individual selections from various specific food stations.
