Community Room – The recently renovated room adjacent to the Dining Commons, Room G-211 (formally known as the Employee Dining Room), will now be known as the “Community Room.” This name change reflects its use as a space for patrons (employees and outside individuals) for training and collaborating and as a meeting room for all.
