Campus Community Invited to Grand Opening of Falk Café on 2 on Feb. 15
The Falk Café on 2 will celebrate its grand opening on Wednesday, Feb. 15. Students, faculty and staff from all across campus are invited to a cake cutting at 12:15 p.m. with Falk College Dean Diane Lyden Murphy. In addition to free cake, there will be complimentary coffee and tea throughout the afternoon, courtesy of Falk College. All guests can also enter to win a variety of gift baskets.
Syracuse University Food Services’ newest café, the Falk Café on 2, is located across from the main Student Lounge on the second floor of the Falk Complex. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition to make-your-own salads and wraps, the café has a grill for sandwiches and hamburgers and many other items.
With the opening of the Falk Complex in 2015, it marked the first time in the college’s history—which dates back to 1917 when the School of Home Economics began as a course in the College of Agriculture and the first nutrition course was taught—that Falk College’s academic disciplines and administrative offices were housed in a central location. In 2011, Syracuse University alumni David B. and Rhonda S. Falk committed a generous and visionary gift that renamed Falk College and supported the move to the new Falk Complex.
Today Falk College is home to the departments of Human Development and Family Science, Marriage and Family Therapy, Public Health, Food Studies and Nutrition, Social Work and Sport Management. It is also the alumni home to the Colleges of Agriculture, Home Economics, Human Development, Human Services and Health Professions, and Human Ecology and the Schools of Nursing and Social Work.
