The new lounge is a place where students can socialize and relax between classes, practice sessions, and rehearsals, or at the end of a long day. It will be a center of gravity for student life that will also serve as a gathering place for various functions and get-togethers, and will accommodate newly expanded offices and student group spaces for the Student Life department.
This multi-purpose lounge features comfortable and movable furniture to support a variety of social, educational, and service activities.
