University of Rochester leaders cut the ribbon on the new Danforth Dining Hall on Monday morning.
There’s new, modern tables and chairs. Students can watch as their meals are cooked right in front of them. There's always fresh food, and now, even a campus market open 24 hours a day.
“A dining hall is really far more than just food that's served there. It's a place where students and faculty and staff congregate, and the nature of the facilities affects how people interact with one another,” said Richard Feldman, Dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering.
“It affects the community we have and it affects the way they feel about the college and university they're in. So it really makes a tremendous difference, and I think this is an enormous step forward,” said Feldman.
"Those of you walking around campus – lots going on here. The new education building, now a hole in the ground, will soon be up. We're starting a new dorm. We're going to begin a new digital media and innovation center. There's a lot of energy here, so in that spirit, I'm thrilled to be part of a ribbon cutting of yet another vital project,” said Joel Seligman, U of R president.
The project took about four months to complete.
