Campus Crusade loses hangout

Every time Christy Allen drives past the empty space above Gary's Campus Hair Salon, she said she feels heartbroken. For about six years, it was a place where she and fellow members of MSU's Campus Crusade for Christ used as a downtown hangout. "That place brings back so many memories," said Allen, a psychology and studio art senior. But the group had to end their lease on June 1 due to a limited budget. Allen said she'll miss the former 547 Place, named after its Grand River Avenue address, where Campus Crusade for Christ members gathered after weekly meetings. "It (was) a casual place where kids can just come and be themselves, instead of worried about sticking to the norm," she said.
