South Village Crossing to Open in January

South Village Crossing, the new 56,146-square-foot dining and gathering facility nestled between Moore and Scott residence halls, is scheduled to serve its first meals Tuesday, Jan. 6.

"Our students, faculty, staff and guests will be impressed with the tasteful design, culinary innovation and warm, welcoming atmosphere," said Ana Alvarez, director of auxiliary services. "We expect this building to solidify the sense of community at South Village and attract and delight students and staff from all over campus."

South Village Dining (SoVi) features an expansive hall where all food production will be visible. Patch Hadden, executive chef for South Village Crossing said, "The thing I am most excited about is being able to prepare and cook out front. It allows us [culinary staff] to focus on freshness, quality and plate presentation and allows the students a greater appreciation for putting together a well-balanced meal."
