“In designing the space for the Pavilion, we were really curious about how we could open it up and really showcase what's happening. This enriches and informs the culture of the entire campus.”

“Overall, the experience in the classroom has gone from being didactic to active and collaborative. Nutrition information is changing all the time. New trends are also emerging all the time. So it's our challenge — an exciting one — to stay on the cusp of that.”
