Technology Learning Center Rebrand

Same place, new name! Our Technology Learning Centers (TLCs) in the residence halls will now be called Media Centers to encompass the many different functions the spaces provide. With fewer computers and more collaborative elements, we're hoping that residents will find the spaces to be better conducive to today's needs for learning.
