When the fall semester kicks off in August, Lees-McRae students, faculty and staff will be greeted by the unmistakable smell of fresh brewed Starbucks® coffee right on their own front step! Wily’s Bar & Grill in the Cannon Student Center will soon feature a full complement of Starbucks coffees and teas as well as pastries and other delicious goodies. Faculty, staff and the community are also encouraged to take advantage of this great offering!
Based on student feedback, President Barry M. Buxton led the initiative to get a quality coffee shop on the Lees-McRae campus. With his encouragement, ARAMARK, the College's food service provider, helped Wily's Bar & Grill become an authorized purveyor of Starbucks coffee. In addition to java, Wily's will still offer old favorites such as burgers, quesadillas and wraps.
