Campus Beet café initiative

Campus Beet student-led café initiative to host open house

Contact: Maia Hausler; 517-974-1959;

The Campus Beet, a registered student organization at Western Michigan University, will hold an open house to showcase their dream for a student-led sustainable café. Free locally sourced food and entertainment will be available from 5:00-8:00PM on April 8 in the East Ballroom of WMU’s Bernhard Center.  This public event will feature locally sourced delicious food options prepared by students, musical performances by Taylor Clark and a WMU jazz quartet, spoken word by WMU’s Onomatopoeia and other writers, a student art show, and a community art project led by the I.D.E.A Association. The Interior Design Student Organization is creating an atmosphere that reflects the vision of the Campus Beet Café.  

The vision of the Campus Beet is to offer fresh, delicious, and ecologically sound food, to build the local economy and to support the WMU community. The café will provide space to cultivate growth and expression, while offering an opportunity for student leadership experiences. This open house is brought to you by The Campus Beet, the Interior Design Student Organization, I.D.E.A. association, Onomatopoeia, The Student Garden Organization, the WMU Dietetics Interns, and the WMU Office for Sustainability.
