Following discussions on whether it should remain open, the Wyoming Union Gardens will be open three days a week with emphasis on special events and programs beginning Wednesday, Sept. 2.

A longtime attraction in the lower level of the Wyoming Union, the Gardens will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-10 p.m. and Fridays from 4-8 p.m., with student activity programming during open hours. Thursdays will feature music sponsored by ASTEC (Associated Students Technical Services), and the International Coffee Hour will be scheduled Fridays from 4-6 p.m.

The Gardens will serve a variety of beer (including craft beers) and appetizers, and will feature appetizer specials. During the day, the dining area will be open as a seating area for Wyoming Union lunch patrons.

This week’s schedule will feature:

-- Free pool and ping pong in Pete’s Game Room, Wednesday, Sept. 2-Friday, Sept. 4.

-- Studio WYO, a student-run program sponsored by ASTEC, will host the first concert of its weekly live music series Thursday, Sept. 3, starting at 7 p.m. The featured band will be Tallgrass, a Fort Collins, Colo., band self-described as “dirt stomping soul.”

-- International Coffee Hour, hosted by the International Students Association, will be held from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4.

This month, the Student Activities Council has several events planned to take place in the Gardens and lower level, including comedian Jade Catta-Pretta Wednesday, Sept. 9, and popular Wyoming musician Jalan Crossland Wednesday, Sept. 16.

“These events and programs are in response to the ‘Save the Gardens’ effort that started last year,” says Marta Given, assistant director of retail Dining Services. “The groups include members from Residence Life and Dining Services, the Wyoming Union, ASTEC and student organizations that we hope will schedule programs in the future.”

Events hosted in the Gardens can be found on the Wyoming Union and Studio WYO Facebook pages.
