Johnson College Students Give Back to Campus Scranton, PA – February 2, 2015 – Johnson College Power (JPOW), a student organization at Johnson College had an idea for a class gift that was not the purchase of something new, but the restoration of an existing space on campus. The group of students decided to start fundraising to renovate that space into a student lounge in the Moffat Student Center. Students from the 2014 and 2015 graduating classes raised $3,200 since the fall of 2013 to put toward the renovations. The funds went toward the painting of the room, décor, new furniture, and a TV. This new addition on campus now serves as space for commuters, student meetings and socializing. The organizer’s advisor and Associate Director for College Advancement, Janine Tomaszewski, is proud of the work the students have completed over the last year and a half. “The students wanted to give back to the campus by providing a student lounge that will be utilized for years to come,” she explained. “Everyone at Johnson College is proud of their accomplishment.” Photo: IMG_0719 Caption:
