When combined the "East" and "West" provide classroom-style seating for 48 people. Each side offers classroom-style seating for 24 people, a podium, laptop hook-up, LCD projector and screen, Wi-Fi and floor power outlets for electronic devices. Tables can be reconfigured to accommodate other needs. There is "display" capability for video/TV/computer-based presentations. The space also has an ADA-compliant "Active Listening" system.
