A Facelift for Case Center
Last spring, I saw a group of people standing by the current Case Center couches holding up catalogs and looking at different furniture and fabric samples for what I presumed was to replace the current Case furniture. When I returned to campus at the beginning of this semester, I was surprised to see the same old furniture that had been in Case last semester.
In September, Gail Cummings-Danson, Interim Dean of Students and Vice President for Student Affairs, told Co-Editor in Chief of the Skidmore News Jacob Reiskin ’16 that new furniture had been ordered for Case. On December 1st, though, Cummings-Danson told Reiskin “I found out that the order has not been placed.”
The Case Council Committee, which is in charge of the furniture in Case met recently to go over the furniture selections that were suggested last spring. After the committee met, Cummings-Danson said that they are going to ask the original architect to suggest sample furniture for the space outside of Burgess Café.
“We expect those options to be presented in the coming week [week of December 6th] and that we will make a decision quickly to move forward,” said Cummings-Danson. Once the semester ends Facilities will begin preparing the space so that the project of adding new furniture and a new rug can begin.
