Update: Campus Canteen

Guest speakers: James Hutchins, Canteen District Manager, and Derek Atkins, RCCC Associate VP of Business & Finance, spoke of the South and North campus changes to come about. South Campuses new facility is up and running with new features such as Starbuck’s coffee. North Campus facilities will be remodeled within the next six to eight weeks. The Campus Canteen has invested $50,000 dollars in the north campus cafeteria for better equipment and remodeling. This will be a more “student-controlled” menu. The district manager explained that if certain items were not selling, they would be rotated out and something else would replace it.
