    Lecture Hall

    In your opinion, which lecture hall is the best to sit through class in?

    I'm either going to have to go with Physics 0003 or LeBaron 1210 simpy due to being spacy and being able to stretch out.

    Curtiss was bad until they re-did it. Coover's not really worth a damn. There's one on the east side of campus that I can't remember the name of right now, but it's awful.

    You can barely get in and out of the seats.

    Re: Lecture Hall

    I have a major agenda with Kildee's Lecture Hall.

    Freshman year, my first class was Psych 101 and I was 10 minutes late. I walked into the class from the lower entrance, looked up and saw hundreds of people staring at me. I then walked around for 5 minutes trying to find a seat until I just sat on the floor. I almost quit college that morning 8 minutes into it.

    I'm pretty sure that's it. I've never had a class in there, but I had some exam reviews back in the day.

    Re: Lecture Hall

    Kildee, no contest. Room to move around, good line of sight for the lecturer and the projection screens, and a fairly nice auditorium.

    Worst lecture hall is Gerdin. You have to sit in the top row in order to see the screen.

    Re: Lecture Hall

    All I remember is Physics 3 was terrible... And not one lecture hall has enough left handed seats.

    Re: Lecture Hall

    Totally read this thread wrong. I thought it was asking for the worst lecture halls. I like LeBaron, Kildee, and Gerdin. I always sat in the front 10 rows of Gerdin, and I saw the screen fine.

    Re: Lecture Hall

    Gilman 1002 (??--the first one when you walk in from the south)--had a massive hole in the ceiling during Spring '07
    Gerdin & Hoover--awesome
    LeBaron 1210--I think I'm the only one that can't stand this room. Spinning chairs are cool and all but I get ADD and get a little too relaxed to pay attention
    Kildee--ehh, decent.
    Coover--crappy, could've been because the class was Econ 102 taught by an international TA that I couldnt understand
    Curtiss--really nice, if you're in the way back on the main floor you can't see the entire overhead screen though b/c of the balcony
    MacKay--whoever thought this room would be good for lectures was on crack. The balcony is a good view but 200+ people in a non-stairstep lecture hall? Oookay, buddy.
    Physics--had a final here, wasn't too bad
    Food Sciences--small, cramped, memories of a horrible orientation class required freshman year

    It's been redone...both that and Physics 5 I'd say quite recently. Physics 3 is very, very comfortable now

    PHYSICS 0003

    Re: Lecture Hall

    Just for reference, the main lecture halls are:

    Kildee (Lush Auditorium)- personal favorite
    LeBaron- very nice, but I don't like the two rows per level
    Curtiss- really nice, split level is good for sleeping
    Gilman small auditorium (room 1750? or something like that)- good hall, bad location
    Carver- a little cramped but I personally like them
    Molecular Biology- nice
    Morrill- very nice
    Hoover- good, but uncomfortable seats
    Howe
    Design- alright, but hard to get in and out of
    Physics- nice hall, bad building
    Gilman large auditorium (room 100 or something like that)- needs renovation
    Coover- cramped and dark
    Durham- small
    Agronomy- small, cramped and kindof dark
    Horticulture- very small
    Gerdin- poor layout, but really nice lecture hall
    Food- needs serious renovation
    Marston- needs some renovation
    MacKay- hasn't been renovated in 100 years

    Re: Lecture Hall

    What??? I can't believe they redid the lecture halls in Physics. There was something almost....relgious?...about suffering through class in those awful wooden seats. Not to mention being mocked by the scrawlings of the previous semesters' classes "Last day of.... '97". I remember a guy bringing a Dremmel in to on the last day to write his.
