Wanna Get Student Space?

By Zeno Levy

I, not only as a representative of Sustainability Committee but of New School students and student organizations as a whole, propose the creation of a permanent Student Activist Center on campus, designed, programmed and maintained democratically by student organizations.

I intend to create this space in the basement of 79 5th Ave., which opens on 16th street and is currently under construction. As of now, the space is to be used as a study center and makeshift lunchroom. The basement is really two spaces, separated by a staircase. My vision is this: Bring the lighting down, make the colors darker and less jarring, blacks and browns as opposed to the overwhelming white room with the orange stripe.

For more information, email me at levyz715@newschool.edu or contact Roger Ward, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs.
