Scoular Lounge named after the Memorial Union’s first director, Cecilia Scoular, is a popular place for students and staff to gather. Boasting views of Cady Mall, large windows, high backed chairs, and a fireplace providing a nice glow from November to March, this area continues to provide a serene space for rest, relaxation, and collaboration.
