Displayed in the Gallery, located between the Food Court and Cafeteria, are social awareness posters created by students in Scott Bolestridge’s Publication Design class. The lounge area displays the work of Miroslav Cipar, a Slovakian graphic designer.

He is a founding member of the Club of Graphicans in Bratislava and a member of the Shankar's Children's Art Competition in New Delhi. He worked as an expert in The Children’s Book Trust in New Delhi from 1971 – 1972. Cipar was also the chair of Union of Artists in Bratislava (1986-1989), chief artist of Bratislava (1988), chairman of the Biennial of Illustration committee, member of the Graphic Biennial Brno (1986 and 1988), member of the IBA Leipzig Competition Jury (1982 and 1989), and an international jury member.
