Looking to host a fun team-building event, wellness workshop, or cooking class? The ARC Instructional Kitchen is the place. The kitchen was renovated in 2020 with the help of American Campus to include a state-of-the-art audio/visual system, group stations, and an increased capacity of up to 50 patrons.
