The highly anticipated reopening of the student bar Reggie’s is expected to happen in five weeks, according to CSU President Terry Wilkings.

Located on the Mezzanine level of the Hall Building, the bar has been closed for two years. An unnamed general manager has been hired, and that person is in the process of hiring staff and creating a menu, Wilkings says.

“She’s opened her own bar before in British Columbia and has worked in the university setting as well in food providing,” Wilkings said.

JMSB Loses Dean to Lebanese Business School

The dean of Concordia’s John Molson School of Business, Steve Harvey, is stepping down in December and will be the new dean of the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon.

Harvey became JMSB faculty’s dean in July 2012, according to a release by the university, and was expected to serve a five-year term.

Under Harvey, Concordia’s Executive MBA program was revamped, and the business school received high rankings in sustainable business school surveys.

An interim dean will likely be appointed until a new dean is hired over the winter, according to the university.
