ATLANTA—Returning students at Georgia Tech will see an updated appearance at the campus Catholic Center, including a new coffee bar for students thirsty for an espresso and other coffee shop-style drinks.
Chaplain Father Joshua Allen said the goal was to enlarge the area’s education activities and create a more seamless link between the main floor and the renovated front terrace, which was done last year.
It gives the center an attractive up-to-date look students want to be in, plus provides better street visibility, he said in an email. The center will have a coffee bar available as a tool for evangelization. At the same time, the renovation updated wiring and lighting. A new large TV will be available for presentations and other student events. All the work is expected to be done by early February.
The upgrades cost about $80,000, which Father Allen said was paid for by a special donation.
