After months of construction, the newly renovated Kirby Lounge opened the morning of Friday, October 18. Student Association President Kimberly Newton says the open space is more welcoming to students as they study and relax between classes. The renovated lounge came about from complaints about the old space being too dark and cramped, and students already seem to enjoy the new feel to the study area.
