As if a brand new Miller Hall (first year area) wasn't enough, the residence halls also received some new gear for the comfort of residents. Pictured above, the North-South lounge and foyer (Upper-class area and Sophomore College) have new looks thanks to recommendations from a group of students and staff members. They met last year to re-envision this space and their plans came to fruition this summer. The Prassel patio (Sophomore College), below, was also really fully furnished for the first time at the suggestion of a Student Affairs colleague. This space will hopefully provide a mellow and shaded locale for students to relax, visit, and study. Look for a similar upgrade in McLean next year. Staff members Cally Chenault, Wanda Olson, and Cindy Lara were in charge of ordering and installation planning on these projects.
