The ENWL Student Lounge is now open!

The Department of English and World Languages is pleased to announce the opening of our student lounge! This new space transforms an old office into a place for English and World Languages students to work, study, or hang-out. Located on the first floor in McComsey 248, the student lounge will be open to all students on weekdays from 8AM to 9PM.  

Students and faculty gathered on Friday to celebrate at our ribbon cutting ceremony with cupcakes and coffee. Dr. Emily Baldys shared the poem “In the Library” by Charles Simic with those gathered to commemorate this event and envision a future for the space.

The student lounge is curated by students, for students with members of the Student Leadership Council contributing ideas and design to create a functional area to gather with like-minded peers. At the opening celebration today, a few SLC members commented on what it was like to be involved in this process and what they hope this space will mean for the ENWL community. 

The student lounge features comfy chairs, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and charging station as well as fun literature decor from the department’s archives and information about student organizations and upcoming department events.

Shout out to our Student Leadership Committee lead by Assistant Department Chair, Dr. Emily Baldys, for helping us coordinate this project and the Department of English and World Languages for funding.
