Narrative:
Building the Robert E. & Virginia N. Littell Technology Center marked a new era for Centenary College, the beginning of a new technology revolution on campus. This was true for higher education in northwestern New Jersey as well, because Centenary College is the only private college in the area. Each classroom is set-up as a multi-media experience, with projector, receiver, document camera (ELMO), screen, stereo speakers, DVD, VCR, docking station for IBM laptops, and a regular PC monitor with a mouse. The building is completely wired for network availability and has a Wireless Access Point as well. Located within the building are faculty offices in the rear section, and the "Surf & Grind" Cyber café, where students come to hang out, get on-line, watch TV, and drink coffee.
