Cyber café opens at Olivet College
Oct 15, 2004

OLIVET, Mich. The Milford E. Reeder Cyber Caf has been established on the campus of Olivet College. Located in the lower level of Burrage Library, the cyber caf provides an educational study area that is convenient, comfortable and available to students, faculty, staff and community members throughout the day and evening. The caf was made possible by Olivet resident Virginia Reeder, a 1949 graduate of the college, who made a donation in memory of her husband, a 1941 graduate of Olivet.


The cyber caf is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to midnight, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. It features three computers with Internet access and a lounge area for studying and relaxing. According to Dave Dobson, general manager of Sodexho Food Service, the caf serves items such as Starbucks coffee, cappuccino, latte, juice and tea, in addition to gourmet muffins, pastries and fruit.


Cyber cafs are a trend on college campuses across the country, said Mary Jo Blackport, director of the Burrage Library. We are happy to offer our students another service to meet their educational needs.
