The Commons at Cravens officially opened Thursday, January 31, with a crowd of more than 200 faculty, staff, students, and community members. Dean Connie Foster officially welcomed the crowd followed by remarks from Provost Gordon Emslie, President Gary A. Ransdell, and graduate student Mark Reeves. The newly renovated Cravens 4th floor space offers a single service desk for research assistance, technology support, and writing center tutoring—all conveniently located across from Circulation Services. Patrons are enjoying the new computer lab access, bistro style chairs overlooking the campus, and the modern chairs and bench tables for both collaborative projects and individual study.
