Group Computing and Group Meeting spaces on First floor
The first floor Research Commons is full of activity these days as students work and meet in the research commons. The newest additions to the space are the specialty made collaborative computer stations and the group meeting tables. Both of these tables were made from old carrels and shelving end panels. The new chairs can be rolled wherever they are needed in the space. The group meeting tables have wheels so tables can be moved to allow for groups of 2-6. At each column in the group meeting space there are power poles to allow students to hook up and power their mobile device or laptop. There are still some more additions to come. To help define the area there is signage, dry erase boards and privacy dividers. We are also waiting on the computers, Team Spot hardware, and the new chairs for the lounge. But students seem to like the changes so far!
