Dakota College is excited about repurposing space for students. Student Life Director, Bridget Gustafson saw an opportunity after the dining hall moved out of Mead Hall. Gustafson said, “I knew we had a large space that could be repurposed. The TV room upstairs seemed to be getting a lot of use by the Mead Hall residents, so I thought it would be nice to have a larger area for students to utilize”. After the dining hall addition and Student Center renovation were completed, there wasn’t enough room for one of the pool tables. This started a scheme of plans for repurposing the former dining center in Mead Hall.
