Where there were once welding classes there are now laboratories, long distance learning classrooms, advising offices, and an internet cafe. This multi-disciplinary facility mixes the humanities with the sciences, creating a unique opportunity to foster dialogue between the disciplines by extending educational spaces into public spaces.
