One of the submissions for this year’s ProveIT campaign involves keeping Pura Vida, the library’s coffee stand, open all night so that students in the Retriever Learning Center can take advantage of this dining facility. The first level of the library has become a hotspot for late-night studiers ever since the RLC opened its doors. Vending machines have been available for people to purchase snacks, but no other eating options were in place.
Daniel Duffin submitted his ProveIT proposal after getting huge support on his myUMBC poll earlier in the semester. He created an agreement with Chartwells for this project. If it is selected and funded, the money will be used to create a pilot program to keep Pura Vida open all night. If this model proves to be popular and profitable for Chartwells, they will continue staffing the facility and remain open all night for RLC visitors. “Convenience and variety are the goals of this dining option,” Duffin writes.
