Since the dissolution of Kohler’s, the former on-campus delivery service, late night food options have been scarce for students save for the assorted treats in the vending machines or the occasional pizza night runs by student clubs or organizations. The possibility of a newer and more stable late night food option has been a hot topic among students since the end of Kohler’s. This year, students finally got what they wanted in the form of The Pub, which opened earlier this spring.
In an email to campus last week, President Joseph Urgo informed students and faculty that the opening of the campus pub, scheduled for tomorrow, would be delayed.
After months of debate, planning, and waiting, the pilot program for the campus pub and late night food option is anticipated to begin March 31.
Specifics are starting to crystallize on the new proposed campus pub culminating in a potential pilot program this spring, according to General Manager at Bon Appetit Debi Wright.
On November 9, President Urgo held another of his regular presidential forums.
With legal approval from the state Attorney General, the campus pub has gotten one step closer to becoming a reality.
Plans are currently underway to bring to life what has perhaps been the dream of many a St. Mary’s student: an on-campus pub, where students over 21 could swipe their OneCards and grab a pint with professors, staff, and President Joseph Urgo himself.
