The newly renovated ACELAB comprises two facilities. The first is a classroom with 36 networked Pentium III computers and a dedicated Sony projector that can be used for classroom work and presentations. A high-quality, networked laser printer provides clear, distinct output for reports.
The second facility is the Breakout Room, a state-of-the-art facility that features 10 individual workstations, five group workstations with 42" Panasonic plasma display screens, and a conference room with a Mitsubishi projector.
In addition to self-paced student use of tutorials and software, the ACELAB is available for classes. Faculty can demonstrate software to their class in a state-of-the-art classroom featuring projection equipment and 36 workstations and follow-up with immediate hands-on applications. The lab assistants are available to assist the students at their own machines. With the 36 workstations plus additional lap-top ports, large classes, external groups or programs can meet in the ACELAB when scheduled in advance.
Faculty Conference Hours
Many faculty members teaching the introductory and upper-level accounting courses hold their office hours in the ACELAB. The faculty are available to answer questions from students in any of the accounting sections.
