Mandala Lounge unveiling kicks off JGMC & OASIS Week

On Monday, April 10, staff at the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center unveiled new canvas prints in the Mandala Lounge during the JGMC & OASIS Open House event.

A snapshot of the original culture center of 1950 flanks the left side of the gallery while photos from events like Lunar New Year, Dish It Up, the step show and InvAsian tell the story of the building and its associated programs. An image from the construction of the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center in 2009 completes the symmetrical pattern.

Located on the second floor in the hallway that connects the Gaughan to the Nebraska Union, the Mandala Lounge is a popular quiet study spot for students.

The open house event is the first of many events taking place this week in the building. Additional activities include a Dish It Up discussion on what it means to be Latinx, DJ performances, a board games tournament, cultural foods for sale and the annual MGC/NPHC Yard Show.
