Both dining centers will close at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday as the University encourages students to attend the Fall Address and University Picnic instead.


Durrell Express and Ram’s Horn Express will both be re-opening at 2:00 p.m. along with the Sports Grill in Academic Village, while the main dining areas in Durrell and Ram’s Horn will remain closed until 5:00 p.m.
