Hello There

So we're here in Frasier Hall to show you a typical Genesee. Oh, classroom.

No. At each table station, one person sits in each one. There's an outlet that even plug in your computer, your calculator, whatever you need. We have some air conditioners for the summers and fans, you know, to keep things comfortable. Actually took calculus one in here last semester. Thiss costume is pretty typical of Genesee. Oh, there's kind of some different styles have noticed. If you go to different halls, you'll see depending on the classes that are typically in there, like history or math or English sent. Classrooms are equipped for different things thesame. The buildings were older, so some of the classrooms are kind of like in an older style. Wells was an old high school, so there's some kind of high school style classes in there. Some classes still have chalkboards, but this one has a white board and most have white boards and are pretty equipped for technology. And that kind of thing. So we're on the third floor of the ISI, which is the integrated science Center. You'll find a lot of your own teachers for bio Ken physics scientists, etcetera on.

Supercool downstairs is a swinging pendulum, which kind of represents the physics department in the hallway on the election hall. To new in there is like the stages of embryonic development, and there's like some rocks on another part of the building just to represent the different sciences and stuff.
