A Tour of the GLOBE Floors at Simmons

Where the Simmons Dining Hall used to be, the GLOBE Room allows students to eat, study, and relax with comfortable sitting, kitchen, and multiple TVs. To get to the there from the main entrance, make a left through the doors and turn right down the stairs. You'll notice the sign "Dining Room" on the wall by the staircase when you take your first step. Once you reach the bottom of the stairs, go straight through the doors and turn left. The GLOBE Room will be on the left, across the hall from the billboard mounted on the wall saying "The Globe." But if you don't have time or any business to go in Simmons, enjoy this mini gallery.
