Description

The Maude Fife Room (315 Wheeler Hall) is a 2,010 square feet room, set up in a theatre style with detached wooden chairs and with a maximum occupancy of 150 persons. There is a stage 2 feet high, 31 and 1/2 feet long, and 7 feet deep.

Audio / Video Capability

The stage is furnished with a podium (with reading light and microphone).  The Maude Fife Room is equipped with a distributive sound system, with eight ceiling speakers.  This system powers a lapel microphone and a wireless, hand held microphone.  There is also a built-in podium mike.  

The Maude Fife Room was recently outfitted with a built-in state-of-the-art video projection system.  Video options include a blu ray player that can also play DVDs and CDs. Controls for the projector and blu ray player are located on the wall, just to the left of the AV rack (on the right side of the stage).  Laptops can be connected to the AV system via HDMI or VGA cables located in the podium.

Internet Capability

Air Bears wireless is available; it's a 54Mb connection.  Contact Darrend Brown ahead of time for the requisite number of guest accounts.

The room also has an ethernet port, but usually requires a long ethernet cable to use (depending on where the computer is set up) which can make for slow loading speeds. It's best to use our loaner laptop, which has already been registered to use these connections.
