For immediate release
Nov. 5, 2001

The College of Business Administration officially opened an Internet Café Wednesday in the Mabee Business Building at Abilene Christian University.

The Connections Café will provide business faculty and students with the relaxed atmosphere of a normal café as well as computers and a wireless motherboard for laptops with access to the World Wide Web. The e-café also is equipped with a television, VCR and food and drinks provided by ACU's food service company, ARAMARK.

Among those at the grand opening were Rick Lytle, dean of COBA; Terry Pope, associate dean of COBA; Jack Harkins, architect of the café from The Tittle Luther Partnership in Abilene and various business faculty and staff.

Lytle said the e-café will benefit not only those associated with COBA, but also everyone else at ACU.

"The reason for having this is that I want students and faculty to be challenged to use today's technology; to have a place like this is important," he said.

In addition, the café will house a business resource area with various magazines, videos and compact discs on issues of Christian leaders in the marketplace.
