Renovation of Room 327 GG

 

        During the period from 2003 to 2009, the UGA Department of Geology was able to renovate several classrooms. This was the result of successful proposals for Major Repair and Renovation (MRR) funding written by Dr. Michael F. Roden during his terms as Associate Head (2000-2006) and Head (2006-onwards).  To the eyes of old-timers, the most shocking of these renovations was that of Room 327, the room long used for classes needing access to microscopes.  This page documents some of those changes in Spring 2009, during which the room's front rotated from the north wall to the west wall.

Here are before and after views of Room 327 as seen from the hall door:

Out went the old cabinets from which students had to carry their microscopes across the room:

Instead, microscopes now reside in cabinets beside each seat:

The new tables shown above look nice, especially compared to this old one - note the duct tape!

        This was one of a series of renovations of classrooms used by the Department of Geology.  Another page shows the earlier renovation of Room 200A.
