The lounge is called the Shane Martin Veteran’s Lounge – named after a former student who was killed in combat. The new Veteran’s Club President began the ceremony with a tribute to Shane and his family, followed by a few words by Campus President Susanne Behrens and Campus Dean of Student Affairs Daryl Conte.
