Upgrades Coming to Non Renovated Classrooms

In an effort to improve usability and make things more convenient, Client Services will be placing a VGA cable and projector remote in every non renovated classroom on campus.  This way you will no longer have to bring these with you to your class or have to borrow them when you don't have them.  We expect to have all rooms done by the end of the semester.  Since we will not be able to do all rooms at the same time we ask that you please do not remove the VGA cable or remote from the classes that do get them first.
