Smiles were the order du jour as Alfred State College officials, students, and contractors cut the ribbon at the new Student Gathering Place at the Central Dining Hall on the Alfred campus late last month. Students and faculty have been enjoying gathering and dining in this recently opened, light-filled gathering spot located in the infill area between Allied Health and CDH. The food-court set up makes getting a meal convenient.
Pictured here, cutting the ceremonial ribbon, are, l-r, Thomas Massara, executive director, ACES (Auxiliary Campus Enterprises and Services); Dr. Ronald R. Rosati, ASC provost and officer in charge; Dave Carli, lead architect, Flynn Battaglia Architects, Buffalo; Marshelle Gillette, ASC director, facilities services; Nick Humphrey, project manager, Bovis Lend Lease, Buffalo; Dustin Fabian,'08, Frewsburg, Student Senate president; and Dr. Steven J. Tyrell, vice president for student affairs.
