Pacific University unveiled a refreshed Washburne Univeristy Center in Fall 2014, featuring new and improved dining, shopping and lounging opportunities for students.
The first phase in the remodel of the UC, the 2014 upgrade included the addition of a fully licensed Starbucks, the expansion of the campus convenience store, now called the P.O.D. Market, and an upgrade of the dining room, now known as The Grove.
The facility upgrade took place in tandem with the renewal of Pacific’s long-term relationship with food services provider Aramark. The renewal also brought additional meal plans and food choices to students at Pacific.
Pacific celebrated the new look of its University Center along with the opening of Cascade Hall with a dedication ceremony at Homecoming 2014.
