    Music, meetings, studies, art, culture, fresh food, and more! (Student Design Concept)

During Summer 2015, a campus consortium of students, faculty and staff worked to establish a campus cafe that would be accessible to all WMU students for events, programming and healthy and nutritious food options. The working groups were focused on the diversity of programming options that would take place at the cafe. They also worked to develop a strategy for providing the best possible local, healthy and sustainable food options for a potential student-centered sustainable cafe. 

The cafe could someday be a catalyst that supports a culture of diverse and engaged students at Western Michigan University.
