Second Cup station ready to serve

The Marketplace food court’s latest addition opened Tuesday. The Second Cup offers self-serve coffees and other hot beverages.

Dave McEwen, Food Services department head, says he had been working to bring the company to campus since early 2010.

“They have a great line of premium coffee products, all certified by the Rainforest Alliance,” he says. “Second Cup really takes into consideration sustainable business practices.”

Fundraising campaign hoping to find fertile soil

This year’s Annual Giving Program will enable employees to make a double gift of sorts, says campaign chair Bruce Tucker.

In line with the campaign theme of Plant a Seed, every donation will be represented by a flower in a planting outside the Leddy Library.

“The garden is being completely redone, and the plant material and labour for the landscaping is donated by Facility Services,” says Dr. Tucker, associate vice-president, academic affairs. “It will make a big contribution to the beautification of the campus.”
