Paris-Sorbonne University, one of the successor universities of the Sorbonne, announced early Wednesday that the construction of their new dining hall will begin June 3rd. The hall, which will be built in the modernist style, will be named "Warren G. Harding Dining Hall," after the only United States President to hold a degree from the Sorbonne (Arts & Science, 1884).
"Warren Harding was quite a scholar, and he did very well here," said the President of the University, who asked to remain anonymous. "His senior thesis was on the differences between Beowulf and all of French literature. There are, as Harding discovered, a lot of them."
"It's a shame we waited this long to build Harding Dining Hall," remarked the Bursar, who is also the President's wife. "Such great things can go unnoticed."
Warren G. Harding Dining Hall will open for service in Fall 2013. It will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
