Community Table is the new dining facility located in the former Li’l Alf Café space on the second floor of Powell Campus Center. The venue, which unofficially opened in October, will host various events, including cooking classes; an “integrated kitchen” where student organizations can book the facility to prepare and eat a meal; faculty-staff hosted dinners with students; and “pop-up meals”.

The facility will formally open early next semester, when a hand-crafted table and chairs will be put in place. A lighting fixture, made from a reclaimed barn beam with lighting globes crafted by Angus Powers, associate professor of glass, has already been installed.
