The International Lounge aka ILounge is now open to all international students as your home away from home. Feel free to use it as a meeting, study and relaxing space.  International walk-in hours will also take place in the space as soon as our meeting table arrives! So stay tuned. It’s located in the Davis Center Hardy House 2nd Fl. And it’s a work in progress so feel free to add your personal touches…photos from home or anything that reminds you of home. Enjoy and take good care of it.
