This renovation created a new hub for students to gather, exchange ideas, collaborate, and utilize multiple technologies in a variety of specialized, flexible spaces outfitted with “smart” furniture that encourage and facilitate collaboration.

Audio booths, where students can record their own podcasts, and one-touch video production studios complete with green screens and three-point studio lighting together with digital video editing studios and post-production viewing rooms are provided.

Meeting rooms are monitored with electronic signage connected to a web-based scheduling program that ensures rooms are used to their fullest potential. Other renovated spaces include an adaptive technology suite, a leisure reading room, computer lab, auditorium with pre-function spaces, an access services suite, and the Franklin Atrium.
