A warm, mouthwatering aroma drifts through the air of the Vaughn Library, as the Starbucks on campus is now officially open.

The Starbucks opened on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

“It gives me a pick me up before class,” said Virgil Hatfield, freshman at TJC, who was sitting at a café table drinking coffee.

Lines were forming Tuesday morning as students were going and coming from class.  The student body is really excited about this new addition.

“It’s really convenient to have something other than the cafeteria,” Crystal Saucedo, freshman at TJC, who was accompanying Hatfield drinking her coffee and eating a pastry.

Starbucks will be open 7:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Fridays.  They will be closed Saturday and Sunday.

  1. I think having a starbucks on campus is a great idea. It would give people who are running late and need a quick boost the chance to get that and still make class on time

  2. I was so happy when I found out we finally have a Starbucks on campus. Trying to wake up early and make it to class on time, I tended to forget to grab a cup of coffee and a bite to eat on my way out the door. Ever sine Starbucks opened I haven’t had that problem anymore.
