Changes to Campus Center Meeting Rooms: New Names Reflect Beauty of Our Region

The Office of the Campus Center is excited to announce a number of changes to the Campus Center meeting rooms.

As previously announced in Intercom, the old TV lounges are in the process of being converted into a new meeting room that will seat between 30-35 persons. More information will be coming about this new space when it is closer to completion. The (old) Seminar and Conference Rooms are also in the process of being converted into e-meeting rooms. Along with the (old) North Meeting Room, these three spaces will have the same capacity as the e-classrooms on campus, allowing greater flexibility for presenters and those attending meetings.

With these exciting changes to the Campus Center meeting rooms, we are pleased to announce that that the five meeting rooms in the Campus Center have been given new names that reflect some of Tompkins County's natural attractions. Starting in the Fall Semester:

The North Meeting Room will be the Taughannock Falls Meeting Room
The South Meeting Room will be the Buttermilk Falls Meeting Room
The new 2nd floor meeting room will be the Ithaca Falls Meeting Room
The Seminar Room will be the Six Mile Creek Meeting Room
The Conference Room will be the Cayuga Lake Meeting Room

In addition to the new names, we plan to updated the rooms with new artwork. In the fall, the Campus Center Advisory Committee will be seeking submissions of photography and/or artwork from students, faculty, and staff that feature any of the five attractions the rooms are named after. An intercom article will come out in the first week of September with details about the submission and selection process.
