Canova Commons:
Dining Hall Renovation

Cedar Crest College’s dining hall has officially reopened as the Canova Commons at a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring President Carmen Twillie-Ambar, Chairman of the Board David Keller, and Student Government Association President Maria Vincent.

The renovations were made possible due to a bequest by Verna Orcurto Canova '38, a lifelong Allentown resident, philanthropist and community volunteer, who left $3.5 million to Cedar Crest College to fund many of the things she loved best about the liberal arts institution from which she graduated in 1938.
