You Could Help Choose The New Furniture For East And North Halls

East Halls usually provoke an odd feeling somewhere between nauseousness and fond reminiscence of freshman days in State College. While a majority of incoming freshmen live in East, the residence halls themselves are not exactly the nicest. The rooms are small, the elevators barely work, and there always seems to be a strange smell wafting through the air. Thanks to these factors (and probably many, many others), Penn State is working to update East Halls.

Students passing through Findlay Commons this week can vote on their favorite dorm room furniture for the new and renovated residence halls on campus. You can give feedback daily through Friday, Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Flip-charts set up throughout the displays ask students about their opinions on the various aspects of the furniture setups.


In addition to this feedback, three focus groups will also help narrow down which furniture options are best. Two sessions occurred last week, but your final chance to add input this way will be Monday, Nov. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

As for the actual furniture displays themselves, the six different bed-set options are labeled A-F. While there are obvious pros and cons to each of them, every set is most certainly a step up from the current furniture in East and North Halls.

With these new renovations and updates, East Halls might even move from the bottom of the residence hall food chain to the top.
