Joan Bice Underwood Tearoom to reopen Sept. 11

The Joan Bice Underwood Tearoom is set to reopen on Sept. 11, complete with updates to improve the experience of diners and students in the teaching lab. 

Katie Ginapp, lecturer in AESHM and co-instructor in the lab said that the changes aim to benefit the students in the HSP M 380 course. In addition to extended hours and new menu items, equipment upgrades similar to full-service kitchens, improved lighting and seating, and video monitors were added to the dining room.

The tearoom will also be enabling payment with CyCash later in the year, and is currently working on adding an online ordering system.
