Boba Tea Island at Lake Waban: Wellesley College's New "Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center"
I recently visited my alma mater Wellesley College last week and checked out our new student center called the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center. The architecture is beautiful -- it kinda reminds me of MIT's impressive stata center in that the floors spiral upstairs with views of Lake Waban--although it has a more intimate casual feel. Our student center now features three floors with lovely modern, brightly-colored Scandinavian furniture (?) that have somewhat organic shapes. Colored boba islands amidst corners and niche areas perfect for maze aficionados. They even have a hip looking boba tea coffeeshop area and cafeterias, pool tables, huge tv screens, etc. The Wellesley bookstore is also in this building. Free wi-fi connection. Man, I wish we had this student center when we were in college!
