Some students are breaking the unwritten rules of sitting in designated lounge area

Gregory Klop, a biology major, was unaware that the CC lounge is only for music people.
Klop told reporters on Wednesday that he just was looking for a place to study. “There was an open chair,” said Klop. “I just figured anyone could sit there.”
Klop had only been studying a few minutes when an irate tuba player noticed Klop was not of his kind. The tuba player confronted Klop and asked him to leave immediately, as he was clearly not a music person because he was studying molecules rather than confusing chromatic scales and complicated dynamics.
Fearing for his life, Klop gathered his things and scurried out of the CC lounge as quickly as possible.
“This is clearly our lounge,” scoffed the unnamed tuba player. “Anybody can tell that this is where the music kids sit.”
Upperclassmen know the drill and never sit in the CC lounge unless invited by a music person.
“There’s always some kind of singing or instrument being played,” said bystander Leslie Halle, “so I know not to hang out in the CC lounge unless I know about musical things.”
Klop knows better than to hang with the music people. He has since found a new spot close enough to the biology department, but far enough away from the theatre department.
