Sporting a wrap-around couch, two smaller sofas, a home-entertainment system and a large kitchen table, the Duncan Green Room welcomes not just everyone doing homework, but the more laid-back, too. The table offers a convenient place for small meetings, doing projects, or working on P-sets together, while the sofas provide a welcome place to relax. Known to some students as "my bed" after a long night of work, the wrap-around sofa is a squishy (and sleep-inducing) surface. The Green Room is particularly well known for it's Friday-night movie nights (and sometimes Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday as well), where students watch anything from The Matrix to Slumdog Millionaire to anime. The Green Room gets its name from the forest green walls, a reflection of Duncan's colors: green and gold; and, the giant golden crest on the wall screams Duncan Pride.
On Saturday nights, as the clock nears 2 am, the beats in the Music Room don't stop. Offering students three pianos, a drum set various amps, a large costume chest, and a single, lonely bongo drum, the Music Room is a wonderful place to go to practice, jam, or just hang out. Located on the first floor, between the Laundry and EMS rooms, this moderately sound-proofed locale offers musicians the peace and "quiet" they need. Supporting many (if not all) of Duncan's student bands, the Music Room is a wonderful, and nicely carpeted, place to beat that bongo.
The favorite room of many-a-Duncaroo, the Game Room supports both civil and contentious air hockey bouts, pool games, table tennis matches, and foosball competitions. Although it lacks a consistent air conditioning pattern, nevertheless, the Game Room is a favorite after-dinner hangout. Table tennis matches stretching into the wee hours of the morning, and air hockey pucks flying off the table are an all-too-common sight. What makes the Game Room truly part of Rice, however, is the giant Rice "R" painted prominently on the East Wall. In addition, the room offers an a movie room and gameday hangout for all three of Duncan's avid football fans. The three couches grace the north end of the room. There is also a wall mounted tv great for watching movies, sporting events, or even the Bachelor with friends.
