SORENSON HALL EXPECTED TO BE RENOVATED BY THE END OF FALL SEMESTER
According to VP of Finance, Facilities and Industries at Northern Caribbean University (NCU), Errol Malcolm, Sorenson Hall is currently under light construction and is expected to be renovated by the end of fall 2019 semester.
Malcolm said that the upcoming changes are geared towards providing a more appealing appearance “The aim is to improve the aesthetic of the cafeteria to make it more appealing” said Malcolm.
Additional changes includes: the installation of cameras within the facility, the implementation of new policies namely; the methods of spending and purchasing, instead of taking requests with emails, there will be a swipe card initiative implemented, in addition, meal vouchers will no longer be accepted or utilized in correspondence with the new policies being implemented within the facility.
NCU student Marva-Marie Hall said, “It would be really good to see some changes being made to cafeteria as it relates to the building itself and the policies. It’s long overdue”. However, the issue of meal vouchers no longer being used was frowned upon by many students when questioned.
The Director of Food Services, Mcziffon Marstin said, “Painting is currently being done to the outside areas of the building however, it was only being done because of a threatening email sent to the Department of Maintenance.” Marstin also added that the renovations being done to the building are long overdue as some structural problems have been existent for over four years.
Students are encouraged to cooperate with the new initiatives put in place by the cafeteria as they provide better products and a friendlier customer service to NCU.
