The Lion’s Pause is a student-run event space located on the first floor of Buntrock Commons. The Pause offers several event venues, a study area, pool and sports lounge, and a kitchen offering a full menu including our famous pizza and shakes. The Pause is a branch of Student Government Association run by students for students. That means that we know what you like and what you want. So, we try to keep the Pause as fun, hip, real, wicked, happening, rocking, and rolling as possible.
