“In response to years of students’ input that they wished that there would be more food and drink options on the east side of campus, NIU is excited to offer a Starbucks at East Side Café to the NIU community,” said Richard Fritz, director of Residential Dining.
“Starbucks is a well-known company with a great reputation and drinks that are recognized and popular among the age group.”
The East Side Café will offer a wide variety of hot and cold beverages and NIU bakery items. Four types of coffee will be available:
- Veranda Blend (a light roast);
- Pike Place (a medium roast);
- Caffè Verona (a dark roast); and
- a decaf coffee blend.
Students and faculty members can use their Huskie Bucks, debit/credit cards and NIU flex dining dollars.
