2012-13 Academic Year In Review

Palmer Commons experienced exhilarating growth during the 2012-13 academic year. We dedicated ourselves to improving our service efficiency and effectiveness and challenging ourselves to reach beyond our past horizons to meet and exceed more of our guests’ expectations. By stretching our capacities we sought to broaden our campus reach and community inclusivity. We called this movement “Improving Community Experience through Bold Engagement.”
