Bar Renovation Completed In the fall of 2015, the exiting Student Government Association executive board decided to renovate the bar in the Hub as its gift to students. Renovations included a room expansion, a new floor, bar, bar furniture and a new sound system installed. Another new feature included a new iPad outside of the bar, giving students the opportunity to listen to their favorite radio station in the Hub area. The renovation would not have been possible without the help of Sodexo and the following individuals: Matt Simpson, Jane Rogers, David Breen, Lisa Saverese, Michael Miers, Christopher Koretski, Kolin Matthews, Danielle Parisi, Kevin Shuck and Marjorie O’Reilly.
