The Forbes B&W Lounge is space for Forbes students: we host movie nights (there's a screen and projector), yoga classes, FCC, RCA, and RGS study breaks for our residents. It's quiet and secluded during the day, and students frequently take advantage of that for studying and writing. The space houses our ping pong table as well as a brand-new air hockey table, as well as three high-top tables with bar stools and two larger tables for group study. There are comfy couches as well!
In its former life as the Black Box Theater, the room was a space for performances by dance and theater groups. After our students expressed interest in converting the space into a lounge/game room, we moved the ping pong table down there and at the FCC's request we bought an air hockey table to add!
Since the transition to a lounge space, we no longer book the B&WL for outside groups' rehearsals, performances, or events. If you are a Forbes student and would like to utilize the space for a Forbes community event, contact Maureen Riggi.
Have more ideas for using or improving the space? Let your FCC members or the college office staff know--we want the space to reflect your interests and to feel like home!
