Optional project – Starting up Lucy MCR

The grad students require a cozy place on-site to feel welcomed and more importantly, to be actively involved in the on-site college life and activities. The MCR can be the place for graduate students to study over the summer to make sure that it is comfy and quite despite construction work going on.
