Mid-State brings Starbucks to Wisconsin Rapids Campus
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – In response to student interest, Mid-State Technical College is now serving Starbucks hot and cold beverages in its Wisconsin Rapids Campus cafeteria.
The new Starbucks counter opened on the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 26, to great excitement among the campus’s staff and students. “I think this is awesome,” said nursing student Adriane Huckstep. “Starbucks is good coffee, and otherwise there’s not a Starbucks in the area.”
According to college officials, the desire for a coffee shop on campus was expressed by students during student listening sessions last fall. This preference was then included in Mid-State’s strategic planning discussions and brought to fruition at the start of this school year through an extension of the already on-site cafeteria vendor.
“Our college takes student input very seriously,” said Mid-State President Dr. Shelly Mondeik. “In this case, our students told us that having a coffee shop on campus was important to them, and we were excited to be able to make that happen so quickly to serve them better.”
