About 1104 Rood Hall... 1104 Rood Hall

PHYS-1150 is usually taught in 1110 Rood and sometimes the big lecture hall, 1104 Rood. For Fall 2012, we're in 1104 Rood -- which can be accessed from either the northwest or northeast doors to Rood Hall. Everett Tower is across the gap -- that's where the Physics Dept. offices and Dr. Phil's office are located.
