Abel Valenica, district marketing manager for Chartwells on the Winona Campus, presented to the Student Senate on March 16 details on upcoming dining hall renovations. His presentation provided an overview of the process, which began last spring with student surveys and engagement, and the proposed concept for the renovations. These renovations include an open concept eatery and the creation of one large dining room to provide more natural light and seating for students. Saint Mary’s is working with Chartwells on the final details regarding branding, color scheme, etc. The renovations will being mid-May, and the space will be completed for the 2021-22 academic year. We will provide regular renovation updates throughout the summer so you can see the changes.
