ECU to transform dining halls into late night study facilities for final exams

East Carolina University will transform the university’s two dining halls into late night study facilities to provide a quiet place for study during final exams

ECU Campus Dining will open Todd Dining Hall and West End Dining Hall from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. Nov. 28 through Dec. 14, excluding Dec. 2 and 3.

Bill McCartney, associate vice chancellor of ECU Campus Living and Dining, said the idea was generated from discussions with residence hall students and residence advisors.

“The students told us at the end of the semester there was simply not enough study space in their halls or on campus as finals approach,” he said. He said students also expressed concern about late-night excursions across campus to the library.

Campus Dining will provide light refreshments for students; Campus Living staff will supervise to ensure that an appropriate study hall environment is maintained. The wireless signal in both facilities has been strengthened to help students with efficient online access.

“We are very happy to be able to offer this to our students,” said Joyce Sealey, ECU food services director.  “In addition to providing top quality food service, we feel it’s important to serve our students’ academic needs and interests whenever we can.”

In the fall 2010 and spring 2011 semesters, nearly 3,000 students took advantage of the dining halls as study halls program.
