The University of San Francisco was abuzz this summer
with a variety of building enhancements. Most obvious
were the upgrades to the University Center cafeteria.
Improved seating, a sushi counter, brick pizza ovens, and
unimpeded views add a touch of class to the eatery,
renamed Market Café.
Student Leadership and Engagement, student clubs,
and student government offices on the fourth floor of
University Center have been made over with glass interior
walls and group study and conference rooms. The design
mirrors improvements made to the fifth floor in the spring.
The Parina Lounge, ever popular as a student hangout
at the third-floor entrance, was updated with new lighting
and touch-ups to the wood paneling. The USF bookstore
will soon occupy space on the first floor.
Cowell Hall received new light fixtures and carpeting.
Residence hall rooms received the usual summer touch-ups
and repairs, including new paint, carpeting, and restroom
fixtures. After nearly eight years, Negoesco Stadium
received new turf.
