The Hub

Located in 103 Reese Phifer, this space is perfect for student organization meetings, class project collaboration or personal study. The conference room seats 10 and is equipped with Apple TV connectivity on the extra-large, high definition monitor. There is also a collaboration room furnished with white boards for groupthink sessions and brainstorming.
