About 1118 Rood Hall... 1118 Rood Hall

PHYS-1150 is usually taught in 1110 Rood and sometimes the big lecture hall, 1104 Rood. However, this semester, we're in 1118 Rood, which is sort of the mirror twin of 1110 Rood. Normally this is a Geology lecture hall -- it doesn't connect with the Physics Demo Equipment Room. Also, you'll notice that there is no center aisle. We have lots of people registered for our class, so you will not be able to just sit all in (a) the back rows and/or (b) the outside aisle seats. Given that it's winter, this will be lots of "fun" to deal with all the heavy coats as well.

If you already know where 1110 Rood is, just go into the little corridor past the fish*** -- and 1118 Rood is right there on the northwest corridor of the building.

*** 10 points for the first person to tell me in class what kind of fish this is.
