All through the summer of 2013, with the efforts of construction and the help of generous donations, the Student Center began its exciting project. Now, it's available to anyone and everyone, and without a doubt one of the coolest places on campus!
I've taken a photo adventure through Dion over the past couple of days and found a couple of old shots, capturing some of my favorite little spots.
A shot from a study area overlooking a gorgeous Fall day!
The passage from my dorm, Lyons, into the Student Center...equipped with snacks and study-couches!
#SMCVT! The beloved Instagram wall...select pictures captioned with #smcvt are added and swapped out every now and then, highlighting some of the prettiest, funnest, most exciting moments of St. Mike's student life!
Now for my favorite Student Center feature, Einstein's Brothers Bagels: home of the best bagel I have ever tasted (I highly recommend their asiago bagel with onion and chive cream cheese)! Their strawberry banana smoothies are another delicious staple, and their weekly nighttime specials are just to die for. Recently, they've whipped up some beer-battered onion rings and fried ice cream, just to name a couple...I mean, talk about a go-to for those late night cravings!
One of the many sweet study nooks; this one's on the third floor...it's got so much light and is such a tranquil atmosphere that it's one of the coziest places to study on campus.
This tower at Dion's main entrance changes from color to color when it gets dark. Very, very cool to say the least.
Between the delicious food, adorable studying spots, activities (movie nights, pool tables, and more!), and convenience (it serves as an indoor passage from the Lyons and Joyce dorms, so you only have to walk about fifty feet outside to get to the dining hall when it's cold out!), the Dion Family Student Center is definitely a noteworthy campus gem! Do not miss out on everything it has to offer when you all come up! I promise you, it'll be worth spending a lot of time in. See you there!
