Furniture: The Five S's

Thanks so much for your comments on the sample furniture for the new Mezzanine Study Room!

Here's a summary: You want furniture that's soft, serious, sturdy, studious, and sophisticated.

Based on that, more samples will be placed in the Link in the next couple of weeks. Test them and tell us what you think!

Talk Zone Results

Thank you very much for filling out polls and writing on the Talk Zone whiteboards.

The number one request for the Talk Zone is: vending machines

We've tried our best to accomplish this but load bearing and wiring requirements are working against us. For now, we've put it on the back burner.

The second most common request for the Talk Zone:  tables for group work and board games

We've moved one larger table in already and will have at least one additional one. Board games are now available in the Talk Zone. More board games can be checked out from Media Services.

New Study Room Results

We asked: In early summer we asked students for color and furniture recommendations for a new group study room.

You talked: Forty students responded. The results showed a clear preference for black and red club chairs.

We listened: We bought four comfortable club chairs with a black suede-like finish, a red ottoman, and complementary study tables and chairs. With the large touch screen and PC, it's a great place to watch videos, video-conference, or work on group projects. Find out more about private study spaces at
