Holding a lecture class in the Tsai Center is slightly different from other spaces on campus. Because Tsai is a fully-equipped theater with complex systems, we will have 1-2 trained Tsai student staff onsite for the duration of your class to help manage media, sound, and lights. It will be our technical staff that will assist you here, whereas it is the IS&T/LETS staff in other classrooms on campus.
