Food Court Lobby Renovations This Week

This week, the food court in the NVC lobby will be getting a makeover. Workers will begin installing new seating, painting the walls, and repositioning the bulletin boards. Consequently there will be no seating available in that area for the remainder of the week. We expect the Food Court Lobby to become available next week as soon as the work is completed.
