To compare, we dropped 0.4% (29 students) from Spring 2020 to Spring 2021. Pretty impressive considering all that is going on this school year that wasn't happening last January.

I was shocked to here Bk closed it was always busy and was open later then anything else in the union. Plus it was actually better than the one in town. Plus adding a 3rd starbucks like why it's when they had 3 subways before they closed one. http://www.news3wiu.com/2021/03/31/wiu- ... 2cUQ4UEDTs

From what I heard, it was BK's decision not to renew the contract, so they must have decided it wasn't worth it for them to continue that location. It was always busy...right around lunchtime...outside of that though, it was pretty dead.
