Due to limited hours at Mary’s Kitchen, Lynn recently announced that on-campus students will receive $50 Lynn bucks on their student ID toward food and beverages at Christine’s and the Perper Coffee House.
“As we adjusted the operating hours at Mary’s Kitchen, we wanted to afford Silver plan participants an additional dining option,” said Matthew Chaloux, director of auxiliary services. “We think students like it as we have seen increased traffic at Christine’s and Perper Coffee House.”
The money is automatically loaded on the student ID and with just a swipe it is possible to make a purchase. Coca-Cola and Starbucks are just a couple of products sold for purchase in the Perper Coffee House and Christine’s.
“I like to get my favorite Starbucks drink right on campus without feeling bad about spending money, as it is already included,” said Hanna Sotolongo, freshman.
Christine’s is a restaurant open until midnight that becomes a sports bar at night. The Perper Coffee house is a café where the Lynn community can find drinks such as coffee or snacks.
“The $50 Dining Dollars provides that option for a quick grab and go meal or a late-night snack,” said Chaloux.
Students are sad that the dining commons are not open 24/7 anymore, however having
some Lynn bucks on their account allows them to treat themselves to different food and snacks more often.
“It is nice to know that if I don’t make it in time for the cafe hours, I can always go grab something in Christine’s, especially now that we finish classes late with the block schedule,” said Ana Lopez, sophomore.
