Under Libby’s Gaze: Merrifield 215

Merrifield 215 has a kind of old school charm that will be lost when the department migrates to O’Kelly Hall next fall.  The traditional arrangement of desks facing the lectern, chalkboard, maps, and (yes) an outmoded TV which apparently produces its moving picture using some kind of tube. 

The maps are torn and tattered.

And the days of the chalkboard are numbered as chalk dust is incompatible with the technology in today’s “smart classrooms”.

I’ve never used a white-board regularly, but I will miss the chalkboard.  I haven’t joined in with the power-point revolution and still prefer to write my notes on the board the old fashioned way. 

The best part of 215 is its view toward the library and the quad.
