the opening of Southern Breeze is wonderful and a positive feature
for the location. "It really shows the campus is growing, which
is nice. I think it's going to be a good place for students to go
and get snacks and beverages, but also have the opportunity to take
a break from their schedules," Flanagan said. "It is also
good it is going to be open until seven o'clock so night students
can use it aso."
