Contemporary Classrooms

The college has a series of different classrooms which are retrofitted with specific digital learning technologies. A typical classroom would include a whiteboard, podium computer, and connectors so that faculty/staff may use their own laptop.

These learning spaces can also be enhanced by loaning iPads, VideoRigs, or SmartBoards from ITS. Learn more about these options below.
