Former residents from longer ago will notice the main lobby looks quite different.
The front desk now sports a shiny, modernistic look, complete with fishtank in the middle,
and the mailboxes have been moved to continue the line of the front desk. A former resident
might wistfully remember when one could check out records from the collection at the front desk.
The side lobby has also changed significantly. The display case was removed and an office space
built to serve the complex director (who oversees both Hashinger and Ellsworth Halls) while
Ellsworth was being renovated. Hopefully the side lobby will return to being a pretty space
when Hashinger gets its major renovation after next year!
