The main hallway is in full view upon entry into the Building. The hallway is a pleasant place to visit with guests. Upholstered couches and wooden benches are available for seating along the hallway.
Also located in the main hallway is a large table where events, notices, and sign-ups pertaining to the Building are displayed. Residents should check this table regularly. Residents wishing to post an item on this hallway table must first contact the House Board Secretary, the House Board President, the Hall Director, or Community Center Manager.
Gold Room and Red Room
The Gold Room and Red Room are wonderful for entertaining. However, refreshments are not permitted in these areas, except for special occasions. Resident inquiries about reserving either of these rooms for group functions should be directed to the Community Center Manager, who will consult with the Hall Director and the Director of Alumnae Relations and Traditions.
The Gold Room houses the Building’s prized art case Steinway piano. The piano is available for resident and escorted guests’ use; please practice discretion when playing it and take appropriate care in its treatment (i.e., do not place anything on top of the piano or bring food or drink close to its vicinity). Hours for playing the piano are 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. During exams, the piano may only be played during mealtimes.
Please only move furniture, with care, when needed for meetings or programs. Any special setup, such 7 as International Tea, should be discussed with the Hall Director and the Building Facilities Manager.
Connecting the Red Room to the Gold Room, the Sparking Room is a charming little nook conducive for studying and holding more private conversations. The Sparking Room additionally contains a collection of Martha Cook Annuals.
The Dining Room is located on the south side of the first floor.
The Cookie Corner is located at the entrance to the dining servery, near the south stairwell. The Cookie Corner houses a series of bulletin boards: the first is the Multicultural Society Board, where information on Multicultural Society efforts and the chairs is posted. The DPE bulletin board, with information about multicultural efforts and events around campus, is located here, beside the Multicultural Cookie Board.
