The Egg is expected to be fully completed, with a grand opening ceremony this fall; specific dates will be announced later on. This past week I was able to sneak a peak of the new building on campus and take behind the scene pictures. When I walked in, I was truly blown away by the professionalism and the quality of work the school has done for its students. I was able to start my tour by going into the brewery, which is in partnership with the Brooklyn Brewery Company. This unique set up allows for brewing classes to be held inside and also allows students over the age of 21 to purchase handcrafted drinks from within.

As I made my way through The Egg, I stumbled upon some luxurious couches and when I sat down they were everything I was dreaming of. The Egg has seven lounge areas with these luxury couches, arm chairs and cocktail tables for all your socializing needs. There is also a library with a free book exchange, a fireplace where you can read books while keeping warm, and a stage for open mic nights, karaoke, comedy shows, cooking demos and more. The Egg has everything you could possibly want -- from college entertainment, food, and comfortable couches. Just to name a few more incentives if you're not already hooked and counting down the days until The Egg opens, there is free high speed WiFi, state-of-the-art surround sound, and over 50 charging stations for all your electronic needs.

My last stop on the tour of The Egg was The Cafe, This unique dining service is powered by Restaurant Associates, which is in partnership with the CIA. This complex kitchen is in the heart of The Egg, facing directly in the middle of anything and everything that is going on around it. The dining services here is similar to the Grab and Go concept and customizable options like, pizza, sandwiches, and sides. The existing Plaza Cafe will no longer be open when The Egg is opened later this Fall. The Cafe will take the place of the Plaza Cafe with more options for food. This tour was an amazing opportunity for a sneak peak of the newest building on campus and I am glad I get to share this experience with you guys. As the grand opening dates get closer I will keep you guys informed of more information that comes my way, until then contain your excitement for The Egg; it will be here before you know it.
