So next time you're in the lobby....

...stop for a minute and look at the floor.

Then look up at the ceiling.

Then the floor.

Then the ceiling.

Now take 10 steps in any direction.

And do it again.

Floor. Ceiling.

Get it?

Dean Lynch,

Yes, the lobby is very nice, but I don't think it is necessary. Occasional upgrades are nice, and the food cart makes life very convenient, but the lobby does not need to be upgraded every few months. Instead of buying new tiles and plasma screens, the money can be used to upgrade the studios on the first floor. And even when there is money for the studios, it goes straight to the television studios. The audio students are suffering because the mixing boards are getting old, while the lobby keeps getting prettier.

An attractive school gets students interested in the program, but they should be able to have good equipment to aid the learning experience once they get here.

My parents are paying a lot of tuition money so I can learn and eventually get a decent job, not to make the school pretty.

I agree. I don't think that tuition money was needed to upgrade the lobby asethetically. It also seems like it was designed in a very dated style. Instead of designing for style, they should have designed for usefulness. With the Ithaca weather the tile should be a little more grooved to avoid slips and falls.

The lobby looks absolutely horrendous. Every time we come back from a break, the lobby has been renovated in some way, and most of the time, I cannot figure out why. It looked very modern and sleek as it was, but now the new floor is a blemish on the entire appearance. I looked at the floor, and then at the ceiling, and then at the floor again. I sort of get it, but I don't get why we spent a lot of money to do it. We pay a TON of money to come here, with tuition rising each year. It was great to see it put to use for the new Business School, but watching my money wasted on an unsightly floor that didn't need redesigning to begin with really gets to me, along with many others I know.
