Located in what used to be the arcade room, the Lions Lair came into existence through brainstorming sessions by the Pause executives.
After a change in contract with the arcade company, this room was vacant for much of last year. The committee finally settled on the idea of an acoustic stage.
This new space benefits performers on campus, especially since the "Essence of Bean" coffee house in Thorson residence hall did not reopen last year.
The Lions Lair can now provide student performers with a space to create their art.
The funding for this project came from a financial surplus at the Pause, designated for capital improvements.
Funding for the performers will come from allotments from the Student Government Association (SGA).
Currently, the Lions Lair has designated Tuesdays as open mic night, with Wednesday and Thursday programmed for campus performers and talent who will be brought to campus by the Pause.
Students interested in performing at the Lion's Lair should contact its manager Andrew Foxwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. He is responsible for scheduling acts and running events related to the Lions Lair.
