Extreme Makeover: Computer Lab edition
Carol Salyers, April 26, 2012
The Computer Lab in room A-300 at Centennial Campus got an updated look and new vibe in recent months. It sports brand-new, attractive ceramic tile on the floor, replacing worn-out carpet, along with new ceiling tiles, fresh paint on the walls, new chairs, and additional square footage. The additional space allowed the lab to expand from 98 computer stations to 130.
The additional space for a “quiet/classroom” is self-contained with 29 computers, available for faculty to reserve.
When not reserved for a class, the quiet/classroom is used by students that want a quieter environment than the bigger lab space provides. The quiet room also serves as an overflow room when the computer lab fills up.
Ernest Hughes, computer lab coordinator, says, “The reviews of our new look have been overwhelmingly positive. We believe we are better able to serve our students and faculty with the increased space for computers and the environment is so much nicer.”
