Just as a reminder, the Frey Commuter Lounge is our home on campus and shared by hundreds that use the space daily. It is important that we take pride in the space we have been given and respect those who come before and after us. Thus, we need to remember to clean used dishes and to wipe off the white boards. Please remember to wash off the white boards. Please remember to wash all dishes that you use and to erase anything you write on the white board walls. We appreciate you taking the time to do this and for keeping our lounge tidy.
