According to Jerald M. Marteena, dean o f Administration, the $1.7 million structure will be of a three leaf clover shape with two stories. The ground floor will house- the "Commons" area.

The second floor will house a 450 capacity dining room in each of two of the clover leaves. Four serving lines with the latest in modern equipment will be capable of serving 800 persons per hour. The kitchen, situated in the third leaf on the second floor, will also be well equipped and will include an employee's dining hall. Marteena estimated the cost of kitchen and serving equipment at close to $233,000. Special conveniences for students, will be an escalator that will assure quick movement of students from the "Commons" to the dining area. Also, a special conveyor belt will carry dirty dishes to the kitchen and return them completely clean in approximately five minutes. A mezzanine-balcony room for small groups is also planned.
