Art in the Lounge

Lobby

The Honors College 2nd floor lounge is an ideal space to study in a quiet setting. While you're there, enjoy an assortment of American craft artwork on display thanks to a donation by Honors College alumna Gwen Paulson and her husband, Jerry Paulson. Art enthusiasts may also visit the lounge, which is located in Eustace-Cole Hall, during normal business hours. Eustace-Cole Hall is one block west of the Broad Art Museum along East Circle Drive.

 Lobby 1

The lounge may also be used for a small classroom space. To reserve the lounge for a class or other special event, please call (517) 355-2326. No reservation is required for students wishing to use the space as a quiet study area or for the general public wishing to view the artwork.
