By Craig Chamberlain The patio at the Illini Union no longer is without a roof; it also no longer is the "patio." After sorting through 1,323 entries in the "Name That Patio" contest, the Illini Union recently announced the winning submission: Courtyard Cafe. Two students, Patricia Marie Phillips, a graduate student, and Darren Marsh, a senior in liberal arts and sciences, each had the same idea and so shared the credit. "I think it describes the space much better," said Robert Mindrum, interim director of the union. "We were looking for a kind of cafe feel to the place," he said. After extensive renovation work, which included a new roof over previously-open space, the former patio was opened for use early this semester. According to Mindrum, "the response to it has really been overwhelming." Open all day for study space, coffee breaks, meetings and small programs, the Courtyard Cafe is used in the evenings and on weekends for a variety of performances and programs. Those programs have included musical groups, comics and theatrical performances, and have provided an alternative to the bar scene on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, Mindrum said. Though geared toward students, faculty and staff also are welcome at the cafe, Mindrum said. In fact, the Illini Union program staff is looking for ideas and participants for a noon program every Wednesday called Cerebral Cafe. Those with ideas should contact Dan Stoffel, at 333-3660.
