When the English Building opened, the lounge (later the English Lounge, P110) was a women’s social hall where students gathered, worked, met with their clubs, and displayed their art work. Before the student union building opened, this was a student gathering space. In the 1936 Saga yearbook, all the student clubs had their pictures taken in this room.
More recently, the lounge has fallen into some disrepair. Due to classroom shortages, we brought in desks and chairs so that we could teach in the room. A persistent leak in the courtyard doors caused the wooden floor to buckle, so the room has been entirely off-limits this last year.
