New Faculty-Staff Lounge

Dear Colleagues,

The Faculty-Staff Lounge is now open. Please do check out and use the new space!

The lounge has flexible furniture (including couches and 8 tables and 32 chairs) in order to offer opportunities to meet and socialize in different formats. Special thanks to Valinda Wimer and her team for seeking faculty input, ordering furniture, and making sure the renovations were finished in time for us to begin using the space in the New Year. The remainder of this year’s Faculty Senate meetings will now take place in the Faculty-Staff Lounge. Additionally, please note that Valinda has a ordered a refrigerator and microwave — and both are expected to arrive by the end of next week.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.
