After almost two years under construction, on Monday, August 24, Midland College (MC) will officially open the new June and Frank Cowden, Jr. Dining Hall. Students, employees and visitors will be able to enjoy campus dining in the 18,600 square-foot addition to the Scharbauer Student Center. “Not only does the June and Frank Cowden, Jr. Dining Hall accommodate a larger group of people, but also offers easy access for employees and students,” MC President Dr. Steve Thomas said. “The dining hall is centrally located on the campus and an easy walk from classroom buildings and employee offices.” The new dining hall accommodates 480 people and a commercial kitchen to support daily dining and campus catering. Outdoor dining on the Beal Patio allows views to Beal Plaza and the main campus quadrangle. The Rotary Community Room accommodates approximately 90 people and is available for use by local Rotary groups and other community organizations. Menu options in the June and Frank Cowden, Jr. Dining Hall feature an all-you-can-eat salad and soup bar, taco bar, pizzeria, cooked-to-order omelet station, hamburger/hot sandwich grill and a traditional cafeteria-style counter with a variety of fresh meats and vegetables. “It is a beautiful addition to our campus and we are proud to have a building that bears the name of one of Midland’s pioneering families,” Thomas said. “Many thanks to June Cowden, her family and all the other generous donors who helped to make this possible.”
