The latest plan for the new Student Life and Technology center includes a state of the art “Educational Technology Center” designed for interactive group work, offices and work space for student organizations, programming areas for the Hendrix community, café, game room, and post office on the first floor of the building. The second floor houses a new dining hall, kitchen, servery, and small dining rooms.
The Educational Technology Center or ETC will be a vibrant, open computer center for both work and play. It includes computer workstations with space for several individuals to work together. The stations will be configured in various ways from soft, comfortable seating with large flat panel displays mounted on the wall to more traditional computer-type desks with widescreen monitors. The software available will include creative suites for making presentations and videos. The workstations can also be used for electronic gaming.
The ETC classroom is a small seminar-type room that will house the latest technology available in the Hendrix College classroom so students can practice presentations. The ETC Video conference room can also be used for multiple purposes but will be equipped with technology for video conferences.
In addition, there are conference rooms and seminar rooms scattered throughout the building. Offices are located on both floors and will include spaces for Academic Support Services, the Odyssey program, Religious Life, and Student Affairs (excluding Health and Counseling).
