There's a also huge lounge area with comfortable chairs on the first 
floor of McCormick between the 4 wings. When you check in and get your 
dorm map, it's listed as the "McCormick Lounge" between North Hall and 
Fowler Hall. I only see 4 power outlets for the whole huge room, though, 
and they're not close to the chairs, so pack your powerstrips/extension 

The lounges in the wings have a power outlet every 6 feet or so, the 
rooms are about 10x10. Most have 4 dining chairs and a couch, some have 
an extra couple of arm chairs.


P.S. This message sent on the dorm wireless, with strong signal and fast 
connection. (At least until everybody else shows up.)
