Transforming Cole Field House into a national hub for sports medicine

Renovations at The Hippo

The Hippo's big dance room is getting a substantial makeover today.

They are replacing the smoky-smelling carpet on the floor and walls and shortening the main bar by Charles Street, according to chief lighting technician Norm Hillenburg.

In the next week or so, they also plan to add a couple 50-inch plasma TVs, he said.  

"Once you walk in the room it's going to look a lot different," he said.

"It looks a lot more open now."

Still no word on whether or not they're going to stop spinning "Promiscuous Girl" 18 times a night.
