Bethel College administrators dedicated the Sufficient Grounds Café and Campus Store on Monday, Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. The new Café and Campus Store represent another step toward the enhancement of “vibrant community” as one of Bethel’s core values. Currently, staff and students are planning social events like open mic night, acoustic-related performances, as well as bringing in other outside performers. The shop also contains conference and meeting space for the public. Its location will also make it more accessible and convenient for folks to patronize it after events in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center and athletic events in the Wiekamp Athletic Center.

The Campus Store, formerly the Bethel College Bookstore, has expanded to include more than just text books and Bethel apparel, but convenience items for students as well. The Café and Campus Store combined form Sufficient Grounds.
