Richards 17

 Digital Arts Initiative courses are taught in Richards 17, a state-of-the-art studio designed for collaborative and flexible learning. Not only equipped with cutting-edge technology like MacBook Pro laptops and an HD projector, this studio is also designed to be completely re-arrangeable. All tables and chairs are on wheels, and laptops have an 8-hour battery-life and wireless internet access allowing for quick transformation from on-screen instruction, to class discussion, to small-group work in a single class period.
