  • 3231 Rebuild

    Over the summer 3231 SC was closed so that the room could be reconfigured. The work is completed, and these photos give you some idea about what it takes to completely reorganize this space. The new layout is similar to the old layout -- tables with computers lining 3 walls of the room and seating in the middle for listening to a lecture or watching the instructor demonstrate something. What is new and improved is that the seating in the middle includes power so that students can use their laptops while seated there.
