Student Center Game Room furnishings

 We'd like to see Plazas at colleges function as outdoor Student Centers. Here's a sampling of the  kind of  equipment offered at indoor student centers. The Swappable Park concept will  allows Plazas to offer moveable versions of the equipment below.

I have found several differences between college and high school during one month. Some of the differences are expected. But the game room really impresses me when i first found it. It is on the 3rd floor. I cannot tell the exact location of the room but it is easily to find. I usually spend my long breaks on Monday and Wednesday in the game room. There are several activities in the game room. You can play table tennis, pool, foosball and cards in there. I think the most popular game is pool. Usually there is a line waiting for playing. It takes more than 20 minutes to wait. So if you want to try then you need to be patient. I have already made some new pool mates.LOL I am a pool addict. Foosball is fun to me because I have never played before. It requires your physical coordination. ....Overall, I strongly recommend you guys to go check the game room and hopefully you will have a good time. Baruch College

The Game Room features Air Hockey, Table Tennis, Billiards, the latest Xbox video games, numerous board games and other special requests i.e. bocce, corn hole, ladder ball and more!
