IUP to spend $37M on dining

By: The Associated Press

INDIANA, Pa. --

Indiana University of Pennsylvania is spending $37 million on new dining facilities to entice students and alleviate crowding.

School officials say the 400-seat, $6.5 million Crimson Cafe will include a Starbucks, a pizza eatery, and other specialty foods. It's set to open in the fall of 2014, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Monday.

The existing Folger Dining Hall will be renovated by the fall of 2015 from a retail food court to an all-you-can-eat dining area. It will include chefs at cooking stations.

Officials say the construction is being done because 7,000 students -- a 15 percent increase -- are projected to use campus meal plans in the next several years. Student dining fees are expected to pay for the work.
