Interior Modernization; Establishment of a Student Success Center

This interior renovation of Cedar Crest College’s campus library reorganized the space to facilitate research and project-based endeavors as well as modernized the environment. The main level was completely refurbished and converted into a Student Success Center by introducing a number of transparent faculty offices; a central activity desk that provides a dedicated area for faculty-student interactions; a range of spaces to accommodate student collaboration, tutoring, and quiet study; and a dining café. The lower level, which features staff support and book storage, was also refreshed. In addition to updated technological infrastructure and equipment, new ceilings, carpet, paint, finishes, and furniture contribute to a vibrant new interior aesthetic.
