The administration closed the lounge Monday afternoon as a repercussion for messes left by students.
Members of Prefect Council warned students about the consequences for not maintaining a clean lounge by senior prefect at the First and Third Wednesday Assembly on Oct. 5.
When the lounge was first found in a messy state, the administration threatened to close it, but prefects advocated for the lounge to remain available to students.
Since the administration has not seen progress in cleaning up the lounge, it will be closed until Oct. 24.
“I think people should clean up their own messes because it’s disrespectful to the people who have to sit their next where they left a huge mess,” Sofia Kim ’19 said. “I spend a lot of time in the lounge and it’s convenient so I wish it was still opened.”
