On March 13, Wood Dining Administrators came together with students to propose a design for the current food court located in the Widener Center: Jazzman’s Cafe.
George Cashmark, the district manager of Wood Dining services explained the new design created by architect Mark Connor of Connor Architect.
Jazzman’s will offer a jazz-like theme and will be featuring a variety of coffees, teas, freshly baked pastries, desserts, grab-and-go salads, smoothies, and gourmet sandwiches.
According to Cashmark, Jazzman’s has been implemented in over sixty college settings, including Leigh University, Kutztown University, Lafayette College, and most recently North and South Carolina Universities.
Edward Houseman, sophomore, said, “Jazzman’s will bring a night life to Cabrini.”
The students who attended the meeting proposed that the hours for weekdays, weeknights and weekends, be extended. Jazzman’s will be completed for the fall of 2003. Jazzman’s will have a variety of seating arrangements, including a restaurant style theme as well as an on-the-go setting. Jazzman’s will have several islands where the students can pay at different points; this will eliminate waiting in line for one register.
The Wood Administration would also like to offer a programming space for events run on-campus. Connor said, “This will be a destination, different from other places on campus, I feel it will be a unique experience for each student.”
More meetings are planned for the next couple of months, as the final decisions are made for Jazzman’s. Wood Dining is very excited and working very hard to bring this innovative dining experience to the college.
