The all-new JPII Lounge

Alexis Stypa ('16) had a dream to completely revamp the JPII Lounge: to make it an inviting space for both studying and hanging out with friends.

With the help of Student Government, Alexis made her dream a reality.

Durable wood flooring, a fresh coat of paint, modern tin ceiling tiles, three new countertops, nine pendant lights, and new furniture make up the lounge.

It took a little while, but with intensive brainstorming, planning, early-morning meetings (and a little bit of coffee), and strategic partnerships, the JPII Lounge is better than ever before.

There is also a plan developing for a coffee shop to be run out of the new lounge, dubbed "The Cave." This is in a preliminary phase, but the hope is to open the coffee shop during the school year.

Phase One: Spring 2016

Project STOVE is going through lobbies and common rooms, one-by-one, and making them more functional and stylish.

We got rid of the broken table and folding chairs in favor of a new conference table, black executive chars, a whiteboard, and accent decor. Not too shabby, eh?
