Members of the Urban Studs, the urban studies club, recently collaborated  with a committee headed by seniors Jane Wilberding and Roha Teferra on surveying, researching and purchasing 10 Adirondack chairs currently located throughout Trinity’s campus.

This week the chairs were placed by Miller Fountain and Coates Library but will be moved to two different locations next week by the swimming pool and between Coates University Center and Northrup Hall. With input from students, the committee will decide on a permanent location for the chairs.

“We provided the chairs to promote a better sense of community on campus and just for student enjoyment and to lounge in the sun and shade and do homework or not do homework and just enjoy them,” said first year Ben Conway.

The committee hopes to be able to provide more chairs for students in the future.
