Naugle Hall received a fresh look over the summer with a new color scheme, updated carpets and easy-to-clean furniture in the shared living spaces. This renovation is the first step in an on-going process to update all the residence halls in the next few years.
Saying goodbye to orange and green, the walls Naugle Hall was repainted to match Shippensburg University’s colors of blue, red, and gray. Additionally, the hall carpets were replaced to match, and new blue vinyl couches and chairs were placed in the TV lounges. The first-floor lobby also has new high-top tables and chairs.
The suites themselves kept the original hard furniture, such as desks, tables, bed frames and dressers. However, the couches and living room chairs in C, D, E and F suites were replaced with the same blue vinyl seen in the TV lounges. The carpet was also updated with new carpet squares, which are easier to replace should they become over-worn.
The computer lounge and study room furniture also remain the same, as it did not receive the same wear over time as the other parts of the hall.
Housing and Residence Life is planning to extend these renovations to the other residence halls o campus over the course of the next few years. While an exact timeline for project is not set because of funding, they are intending to renovate either Seavers Hall or Harley Hall next, as they are the older residence halls.
