Dining in the Campus Center
As 98 percent of Centre College students live on campus, Hastings+Chivetta designed the Campus Center for comfort and socializing with informal seating areas throughout the building, many surrounding fireplaces and TVs. The center includes lounges, meeting rooms, offices for student organizations and two new dining facilities.
Named for long-serving trustee and board chair J. Rice Cowan, Cowan Dining Commons is the primary dining facility for Centre students. The Commons features a large food court featuring made-to-order stations, a spacious dining room with various-sized tables, two private dining rooms, and bistro seating along the main corridor. In addition to day-to-day food service, the Commons also hosts special meals and events throughout the academic year.
The Every Day Café serves grab-and-go snacks as well as grilled and fresh fare.
