Welcome back! Over the winter break, a substantial amount of progress was made to transform the old Laptop Lounge into The Grove, a new more vibrant study space promoted by Provost Belle Wei and designed by CSU, Chico Interior Architecture students. The most noticeable change is the three brightly colored partial walls that serve not only to break up the room, but to provide much needed power as well. New carpet, paint, and ceiling tiles help to freshen up the room. Watch for more changes throughout the semester, including some new furniture. We hope to celebrate the newly renovated space with an official opening and name change ceremony sometime mid-semester.
