The food pavilion closed Friday, but the Campus Chat, located inside the University Union, will open at 10:30 a.m. Monday, according to the university.

At the Union, students will be able to buy food at Boar’s Head Deli, Chopt, Saute and Mia’s. The university has not specified when Chick-fil-A will open in the Union. A press release said the fast food chain will be open next week, so students looking for Chick-fil-A will have to go off campus.

Though the building appears complete, there are still many sections of the Union that have yet to be opened. However, students hanging out around the new Union suggest it will be well-liked once it’s fully operational, with restaurants such as Jamba Juice, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Taco Bueno and Burger King coming in the spring of 2016.

“They still have some stuff they have to fix up, but it looks good so far.” student Candice Day said, also adding that the Union met her expectations.

Which Wich Sandwiches is training employees this week and will open next week. The Corner Store is already open and has been offering students 50 percent off certain items.

“We’re just going to open in stages as the building gets ready,” director of retail dining Kim Schroeder said.

As each area is addressed and everything for respective retail restaurants is taken care of, more pieces of the long-awaited University Union will open for students’ enjoyment.

“Speaking as a freshman, I think a lot of the rooms seem a bit cramped, but I’m really excited about all of the new facilities they’re putting in, especially the new Taco Bueno,” computer engineering student Grant Yarbrough said. “I’m looking forward to blowing all of my flex dollars on tacos.”
