Renovations to the campus's Student Commons lounge area began on Thursday, May 28 with the removal of old ceiling tiles, bulletin boards, and furniture. Known as the Student Lounge Project, this renovation is being made possible through a Future Funds grant from University Park and the Facilities Fee at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. Improvements will include new floor coverings, ceiling tiles, lighting fixtures, air conditioning, furniture, and a built-in stage for performers. Completion of this project is scheduled for late summer.
