  • Changes have been made to the breakfast at Mary Fisher Dining Hall. The updated changes to the dining hall cut a two-hour sit-down breakfast period and replaced it with a 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM schedule during which hot pre-packaged breakfast combination platters would be offered in the Student Market alongside the returning the “Pick 3” meal-plan from last year. In an email to the student body, Dean Brian Coker cited “consistently low utilization” of the upstairs Mary Fisher Dining Hall. 
  • New changes have also been made to the hours of the Athenaeum and Library. An August 5th email sent to the student body cited “faculty utilization data” and a move towards greater sustainability as the basis for the updated hours. The new and updated Ath and Library hours are as follows:
