Tilley Hall - Room 302

There was much feedback on this room prior to renovation.  While the table and chairs in the room were fairly new, the landscape-style seating, and close quarters rows made using this room very difficult and constraining.  It was opted to rotate the orientation of the room and utilize a tier-seating arrangement to make better use of the space.  Not wanting to waste any good furnishings, the table and chairs have been relocated to other rooms to be better utilized.
