Fresh look for a familiar place From the Winter 2013 edition of Vanderbilt Business By Nancy Wise | Departments, Owen News The site of many a team study session, late night discussion and Thursday night social has undergone a transformation. The newly renovated Management Hall lobby features new furniture, dark woodgrain laminate flooring with carpet insets and standing-height tables circling the pillars. The result is a welcoming, almost living room-like setting that is conducive to meetings, studying and, yes, socializing. So far, students and alumni alike appreciate the changes: This photo drew the most likes on Owen’s Facebook page in September. Lobby renovations began late in 2012, with the floor replacement occurring during June and July.
