    Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    When did this renovation occur! Sure didn't look like this in the early 90's when I was taking Zoology!!

    I'm a sophomore and it's been like that since I've been here. I'll be there tomorrow as a matter of fact.

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    Had to have been done early to mid decade I think..

    When I took classes there...nothing but a creaky auditorium with ghost of alumni past.

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    I was working with the team that installed the screen and AV equipment in that room. I remember the screen going up first, as it's one screen but has two rear-projectors installed behind and that was done in the Summer of '06. I'm guessing the rest of the renovation to the auditorium seating and the stage/podium was completed in the Summer of '07.

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    Definitely was done in the past few years. I took a final there in the not too distant past, and it looked NOTHING like that! Wow!

    EDIT: Noticed the iPhone intelligently corrected "I took" with "unroll". What?

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    I took a lot of naps in that upper deck. I probably haven't had a class there since spring of '05, but it didn't look like that at all.

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    This was completed in the fall of 2007. I worked for the ISU construction office as a student intern my final semester helping with the day to day stuff with the job. It was very intersting to say the least. Though the colors are a bit obtuse as we called it Shoe Carnival (not sure why?) It's a pretty cool auditorium. To meet newer codes, the auditorium did lose quite a few seats actually.

    I remember it being very dusty/ancient when I was there.

    That is very impressive!

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    Wow! I saw that in an email from ISU but I didn't see where it was. I figured it was a new building. It does look like there are a lot less seats. I only ever had 1 class there, but given that it was Soc, didn't attend much or sat in the balcony across the way in the picture.

    If I had those seats when I was a student at ISU, sleeping would have been much easier.

    As have I. Best environment for a nap? College of Design with professors that dimmed the lights.

    Me too! Upper level was a good place to nap without looking so obvious since most profs didn't care to look up a lot.

    Had 1 class in there with Darren Davis and all he would do is nap every time. He and some big lineman would come in halfway through lecture, sit in the upper deck and proceed to nap. I don't know how he passed that class because I couldn't afford to nap with how tough it was. Probably the hardest earned C+ I ever got at ISU and that was only because I aced the final after going into it with a grade somewhere in the D range and studied more than I ever had for 1 final because I was worried about failing the class just like several others I knew were in the same boat. Same class also had Cael Sanderson in it his freshman year who happened to be in my recitation section as well. He wasn't quite as well-known then as he eventually was though.

    Re: Wow! Curtis Hall Room 127!

    It looks nice, however I would miss the old room as it had a nice old school college feel. Psych 230 was a great class to nap in the upperdeck, or just catch up on reading the daily.
