The new temporary student center at the University of Kentucky opened Monday amid mud and rain.
The student-named Bowman's Den — in reference to UK's founder, John Bryan Bowman — will house many of the former student center's dining facilities and retail shops. There is also a new temporary bookstore about a block away.
The $4 million Bowman's Den building will serve as the student center until January 2018, when the new student center will open.
Bowman's Den is adjacent to the Singletary Center. Its dining choices include Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Greens to Go, Panda Express and Subway.
