Susan Abraham, who designed the faculty study, welcomes visitors. Susan is the Executive Assistant to Executive
Associate Dean Steven Donofrio.
NYUCD's spectacular new 13,000 square foot College Commons opened
in May with Dean Alfano and other deans donning chef's attire to serve
students, faculty, and staff a wide variety of delicious meal options
in the new food court.
Students can now also enjoy two new lounges, with plasma screen 60"
wall-mounted TVs, a pool table, and computer stations. The locker
room, Schein Dental Supply Store, and laundry/lab coat room are also
located on the Commons.
An attractive, welcoming Faculty Study has also opened. The 800 square-foot
facility features comfortable seating for 20, arranged to encourage
quiet conversation, specially designed lighting, two computers and
two carousels, wireless connectivity for laptops, a wall-mounted HD
flat screen plasma TV with both NYU and external channels, plus a
beverage and snack area, a library donated by faculty members, and
chess and backgammon games. Adorning the walls are framed photographs
by acclaimed photographer Michael Ian of popular sights in the environs
of the main NYU campus in Greenwich Village and the NYUCD campus.
In announcing the openings, Dean Alfano said, "Our students and
faculty are among the best in the world, so it's a pleasure to be
able to provide them with spaces designed specifically to enhance
their comfort and well-being."
