As students entered Clatsop Community College’s Columbia Hall for the start of classes on Monday, they were greeted by new furniture.
Columbia Hall’s dining services area now features modern, matching tables and chairs in chrome and gray hues. Private donors who recognized the need for updated and additional furniture in the College’s new building provided the funds.
Students have already begun to use all of the new furnishings. “The seating was the final touch that was needed to complete the dining area,” says Clatsop Café Manager Jeanne Windsor. “It is so nice to see students interacting with one another.”
In addition to the campus community, the commons area is open to the public, providing an eatery with Wi-fi Internet access, a fireplace, and view of the Columbia River. Future furniture hopes for the Columbia Hall dining services area include soft furniture for the entryway as well as café height tables and chairs to line the second floor stairwell and hallway available for extended dining and laptop use. Ms. Windsor continues, “Tips received in the café during the fall term will be donated by A Taste of Heaven to help complete the furniture acquisition. We are also seeking donors who would be interested in matching those funds.”
CCC is very grateful to the generous donors who made the acquisition of the furniture possible. Individuals or businesses interested in contributing to a similar fund for furnishing the commons area in recently renovated Towler Hall, should contact Nadine Faith at 503-338-2306.
Clatsop Community College is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution.
