Wilkes begins Henry Student Center ballroom renovations in honor of Jean C. '78 & Paul S. '77 Adams

Wilkes University is pleased to announce the dedication of the former Henry Student Center ballroom in honor of Jean and Paul Adams and their 43 years of service to Wilkes University.  
Since the opening of the student center in 1999, the ballroom has been one of the most popular and community-oriented gathering spaces on campus, serving as the venue for traditional Wilkes events including Casino Night, the Multicultural Student Coalition talent show, Homecoming events, and countless student activities. It is fitting that this space, at the heart of our campus, will be known as the Jean & Paul Adams Commons, in grateful recognition of the couple's unwavering support of Wilkes.
This winter, the ballroom underwent renovations to modernize the facility and make it more accessible to guests. Some exciting features of the renovation include:
- A handicap ramp for better accessibility to the stage
- Updating and expansion of the current fireplace area for a more prominent and pronounced look 
- Replacement of all ceiling lights and stage lights, with abilities to dim ceiling lighting and change colors of stage lighting
- Replacement of all carpeting and furniture 
- Installation of adjustable curtain behind the stage 
- Updated wall painting
