Technology Upgraded Classrooms

This past summer, 10 of the general classrooms rooms on the Fairfax Campus were upgraded to enable visual display of materials. Please note that these classrooms require instructors to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD); that is, there are no provided instructor stations or classroom PCs.

There are two different types of BYOD classrooms – those with large TV monitors and those with projectors.
