New this year, the Bethune College Council is offering more to its student by renovating the JCR/JACS rooms to better provide for our students to be able to support a new table tennis table and new gaming system. The new JCR/JACS expansion has the transformation of the JCR into a full out games room, being a complete entertainment area, while the JACS room would turn into a collaboration-based room such as the one in Scott library, being more of a group study/workshop based area.
JUNIOR COMMON ROOM (JCR)
The Junior Common Room ("JCR") is located in the basement of Norman Bethune College and connects with the Bethune College Council offices. This is the quieter sibling of the JACS lounge where people can come and read or study. With ample couches and chairs for seating and tables, you can come here with your friends to eat lunch, go over homework together, or just catch a few winks of sleep between classes. Along with the JACS lounge, the JCR also has a projector screen that can be hooked up to anyone laptop to play movies, watch TV or even to put up PowerPoints to review with your friends. There is also an audio jack that you can use to play music, just be sure not to play it too loud! Whatever reason you want to come the JCR is a place for anyone to come and just be yourself.
JUST ANOTHER CHILL SPOT (JACS)
The JACS Lounge is located in the basement of Norman Bethune College, across from the elevators. This is a place where students are able to come in between classes and have some fun. We have a new pool table which is available throughout the day for people to use. We also have a 52-inch LCD TV, 72 inch projector screen TV with digital satellite as well as a PS4. The room also backs out to the Bethune Patio where you can sit outside either on the benches by the gardens or at a picnic table and eat, study or relax. During the school year, JACS usually offer movie nights and sports nights, pool and foosball tournaments, karaoke and much more in addition to its regular services. Whether you want to play games or just sit and watch some TV, the JACS Lounge is a great place to just kick back and relax.
