President Mary Sue Coleman meets with members of the Ann Arbor community in the Community Dining Room at North Quad.
North Quad’s Media Gateway provides individual and collaborative study alcoves, rooms equipped with display screens and workstations where students can connect with each other and the world.
Visitors to the North Quad Community Open House tour the newly opened collaboration space in Room 2435, with its high-definition video screens and floor-to-ceiling text crawls.
“Here, the intellectual and social development of students extends beyond traditional classrooms and community spaces, and even beyond the boundaries of campus,” E. Royster Harper, vice president for student affairs, said during opening remarks for the open house. She stands with Provost Phil Hanlon, LSA Dean Terrence McDonald and School of Information Dean Jeff MacKie-Mason.
Tour members explore the Community Dining Room.
