A little paint, a little elbow grease

For anyone who has worked in the Plumas Hall basement recently, these photos may come as a bit of a shock.

Yes, this is The Orion office. No, a tropical depression did not come through and clean it out.

Members of the newspaper staff from last semester and this, Lewis Brockus and crews from Chico State Facilities Management wreaked this pleasant havoc. Still a little more clean up and sort-out ahead, but what a change!

Layout boards (which used to be on the left in this photo) were demolished and a table for meetings was set up. 

J&PR professors Prisca Ngondo and Janell Bauer survey the remodel, money for which came from the department budget.
Mail slot and general clutter was removed from the newsroom entrance and a new paint brightened up the space. Also added: a logo for (pictured at the top of this post). 
The old wooden desks that formed the old news desk have been replaced by tables. The Orion inherited new machines from the Tehama Hall Mac lab, which received new computers.
The business office also got a cleaner look and more open space.
