The summer renovations of the Language Learning Center (LLC) were completed over Fall Break. Extensive remodeling was required to address longstanding space efficiency problems and to provide a lab classroom layout more conducive to language learning and teaching.
The previous configuration of the space prohibited regular scheduling of lab hours for many of the lower-division courses within the Department of Modern and Classical Languages.
The principal focus of the remodel was to divide a large area into two new lab classrooms. Additionally, a third classroom was completely renovated for network and electrical support of twenty new iMacs. The LLC now consists of three laboratory classrooms and a central support office that serves hundreds of the department's faculty and students.
The remodel was overseen by project manager Dustin Montgomery of Design and Construction. ITS Manager Craig Williams ensured the highest level of University technology in the new space.
The original concept drawings were provided by Jim Burwinkel, Ph.D. The project was initiated, managed, and administered by the LLC Director Dan Nickolai. For more information on the Language Learning Center, please visit the LLC web page.
