An additional coffee shop is about to make its campus debut.
Starbucks, connected to the Southeast University Neighborhood Apartments, is set to have a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce August 7 at 10 a.m.
The store serves not just campus, but the Brookings community as well.
Located near Seventh Street and Jackrabbit Avenue, the 2,500-square-foot, full-menu store is set to be open year-round. The location will employ 25 students.
When coffee is done being served for the day, a security gate will close up the Starbucks portion of the building. The lounge areas are open till midnight, giving students a place to study and relax.
