Lobo’s is the only University restaurant that has a license to serve alcohol on campus. The restaurant is no longer serving pitchers of beer, and is also enforcing each student to a maximum of 2 glasses per visit. In the previous semesters since Lobo’s first opened, pitchers of beer were available to students and there was not a limited distribution. Students in Lobo’s were asked their opinion of the new regulation.

Sonoma State University’s Recreation Center is currently being remodeled, however, the student body can look forward to the end of the renovation.

The floors of the weight room were starting to become unsafe due to 11 years of continuous use. According to Rec Center staff, the flooring was beginning to form bubbles due to the large number of weights being repeatedly dropped.
