The University of Arkansas at Monticello began phase two of the cafeteria renovations Feb. 2. Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Clay Brown and the student workers brought in bar-height tables and chairs, small round tables and upholstered chairs with square, circle and triangular backs. They plan to add booths later.
“It’s refreshing, innovative and enjoyable, especially the bar seats,” Timothy Woods said.
Brown commented on the addition of the new furniture.
“We are trying to get part of the room to have a different look," Brown said. "I am hoping it gives a current look rather than the 1980s look. It is for people to enjoy it more and not have it look like they are in high school.”
Brown wants to add computers to the right wall of the dinning area for student access.
Michael Cagle, a student worker, agreed with Brown that the renovations give the cafeteria more of a college appeal.
“I think (the students) will (like it),” Cagle said. "It looks like a restaurant."
Junior Michael Thomas commented on his observations of the updates.
