Check out this interactive space located in Fisher University Union that is full of technology, which can be used creatively by students, faculty and staff for numerous purposes, such as group meetings, presentation rehearsals and more! The technology ranges from a virtual reality station to an interactive Smartboard to six dual-boot iMac computers complete with the Adobe suite.

  • Instructional / Computer Lab Space

    Our instructional / computer lab space consists of six dual boot (two operating systems are installed) iMac computers, meaning that you can choose between using the computer with a Windows or Mac operating system. We also have an instructor station at the front of the room with a large screen display that is great for teaching. The instructor station is ADA compliant and easily adjustable.
