Mount Vernon, Ohio
Mount Vernon Nazarene University
The University decided to renovate 8,500 sf of the interior open stack and study areas of Thorne Library to create a Center for Student Success. Their goal for the Center is to identify academic impediments of their students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed.
The renovations created spaces for offices, guidance counseling, study labs, tutoring, and private, semi-private and collaborative study spaces. The large open space was designed with movable furniture to allow for student collaboration and study. Coffee service is provided along with a small cafe area.
There is access to an exterior porch and patio to offer an option for outdoor study as well.
