Since opening at the start of the fall semester, the Digital Media Commons on Snell's second floor has become a popular place for students to work. The variety of spaces, furniture, and technologies available means that students are able to find space that suits their needs, if that means plugging into a monitor for collaborative work on a project, working on a project using specialized software, or bringing a mobile whiteboard to their group meeting.
