Students at UMD now have a new place to hang out.
The student lounge is now open after construction started last spring. It's pretty much double the size of the old lounge with 80 more places for students to sit.
The pool tables were also moved to the lounge and televisions were added. Student Body President Kimberly Newton said it's a great place for students to get away.
"I think the atmosphere, with the music, takes you away from a strict studying area and kind of opens it up to a positive atmosphere," Newton said.
Newton said the lounge has been packed since it opened Friday. The floor is not finished yet. It will be worked on over winter break.
