The S-Stop, located on the first floor of Hasbrouck Dining Hall, is now open to students who are looking for late night snacks or drinks.

The S-Stop used to serve  as an extension of the Hawk Street Station that served sandwiches, pizza, soups and other food items. However, the closing of Hawk Street Station diminished the need for the S-Stop and student dining options became limited.

When Campus Auxiliary Services decided to open the shop again they looked back at their sales to see what items were sold the most.

“Students wanted it back,”  Executive Director of Campus Auxiliary Services Steve Deutsch said.

According to Jim Hinson, a Hasbrouck Dining Hall employee, students came in the store out of curiosity looking at what items were available and checking the prices.

“This is convenient for students,” Diane Jackson, an employee at the S-Stop, said. “It is good for students not to go off campus and use cash.”

Elizabeth Agneta, a first-year undeclared student, said she liked that Hawk dollars could be used instead of her own money

“I like that I don’t have to walk into town,” first-year undeclared student, Bailey Woodard said.

To meet students’ needs during the semester, the S-Stop may become open seven days a week and hours may change.

Sunday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Methods of payment:

  • ·         Hawk dollars
  • ·         Dining dollars
  • ·         Cash
  • ·         Credit or debit cards
