New Campus Food Services Coming for Fall Term

Healthier food options, an additional coffee shop, and meals on-the-go. The changes that many in the campus community have sought will soon be here! Aramark will replace Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Subway and provide food services and catering on campus. New food and beverage options include the Walb Coffee Shop (formerly YOYOS), Walb Bistro (currently occupied by Taco Bell and Pizza Hut), and Kettler Chop'd & Top'd (currently occupied by Subway).

 Current vendors closing May 7 and 8

To be ready for the fall, renovation of the food service spaces will begin as soon as possible after spring term completes. Pizza Hut will close Thursday, May 7; Taco Bell and Subway will close Friday, May 8. We have invited food truck vendors to come on campus during this time; more news on that as it develops.

Learn more, including food offerings, planned service hours, and on-campus catering information.


Merrily We Roll Along Caps 50th Celebration Theatre Season


"How did you get to be here?..." asks Merrily We Roll Along, as it takes us on a journey backwards in time, tracing the lives of three close friends through the best and worst milestones of their personal and professional lives. With the wit, humor, and the intensity that embody the spirit of New York City and a brilliant "Broadway-style" score, Merrily We Roll Along is a spirited and moving story about friendship, compromise, and the high price of success - a cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.

Merrily We Roll Along was previously produced at IPFW in October 2005. Learn more. Purchase tickets.
