One of the most commonly used rooms in the art department is the art studio. Found in Mount Memorial Hall, it has lots of open air space to help let in as much natural light as possible.

Time to Relax
What do you do when you’ve run out of places to study, do homework, or relax? Put up a hammock! Nothing beats a clear day with a soft breeze and some personal time swaying back and forth in a hammock. Hang one between a couple trees on the lawn in front of Indiana Hall, down in Grace Village, or near Winona Lake!
In search of a fresh coffee, a muffin, or an iced cappuccino? Jazzman’s is the place to go!

This on-campus coffee shop, always buzzing with people, is a great place to find new friends while taking some time to kick back and relax.
Omega is one of the liveliest dorms on campus, so it’s a great place to enjoy the Grace community. There are lots of incredible features that make Omega unique.

Pop in and bake some cookies or make some pancakes. You can even whip up your grandma’s secret recipe with your friends any day of the week!
Another great feature of Omega Hall is the home theater. Located on the third floor, this theater has classic theater seats, lighting, and surround sound. Enjoy a study break to watch your favorite movie with your friends. If you need a fix of your favorite binge-worthy show, you can do that too.
