On January 20, 2007, the Providence College athletic department welcomed members of the late Helen Bert's family to celebrate the opening of the Helen Bert Student-Athlete Lounge, located on the second floor of Alumni Hall. Prior to the Friars' game against Marquette on that day, there was a ribbon cutting ceremony. Bert's family also was presented with a gift honoring the late Helen Bert during a halftime ceremony. The event was attended by friends, family, administrators and faculty, along with the presence of countless alumni. The Helen Bert Student-Athlete Lounge provides an area for all varsity student-athletes to study in a quiet setting. During the 2008-09 academic year, the lounge was renovated and expanded. It houses seven computer work stations, one print station and a seating area for group projects and meetings. The newly renovated lounge also provides office space for staff members from the Office of Academic Services.
