  • Monitor requirement and fee - An event monitor is required for all events held or extending outside of normal business hours (M-F, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).  Political Science will make arrangements for this service. There is a three hour minimum ($60 per event) when hiring event monitors.  Each additional hour after the first three hours is charged $20 per hour.
  • Audio / Visual Usage - all of our classrooms have projector capabilities, however only our basement classrooms come equipped with PCs.  All other classrooms have connections but will require a laptop.  The Faculty meeting rooms and TA rooms have no equipment in them.  If you require a projector or monitor and laptop, you must make arrangements with Media Services @ 432-2650.
