The Music Listening Lounge is a place for the campus community to enjoy music or a magazine and relax. Music Listening has an extensive and diverse CD collection (rock, Jazz, hip hop, classical, rap, r & b, pop, international, etc.) as well as table games and magazines. This area has both individual listening rooms (2-6 people each) and multiple headphone stations in the Sight & Sound Lounge. Student Music Listening Attendants are employed to facilitate use of the room and provide customer service.
Music Listening Attendant general duties include checking out the magazines, table games, headphones, and the individual listening rooms as well as area supervision/security and information referral. Certain guidelines and regulations have been established to ensure that the proper attitude, appearance and atmosphere are presented to each customer who uses the Music Listening Lounge.

Daily Tally Sheets
At the beginning of each semester the Music Listening Student Leader and the Program Services Supervisor shall purchase approximately 40 new CDs. New CDs to be added are determined by student suggestions, Billboard charts, popularity, diversity, and longevity. The Music Listening tally sheets from the previous semester will be used as a guide, along with other student input, to determine which CDs would be taken out of the inventory to make room for the new CDs. An attempt will be made to trade in the old CDs when purchasing the new ones. Effort is to be made to purchase the new CDs in the same approximate ratio, by genre (rap, rock, classical, etc.), as the old CDs being taken out of the inventory.
At the end of each academic year the Music Listening Student Leader and the Program Services Supervisor shall review the tally sheets and seek student input as to which magazines should be subscribed to for the following year. In developing the list, consideration is given to cultural diversity, student interests, variety in the types of magazines, and budget.
