The Parrington 108 classroom underwent a big change this past week: the bricked-in windows in classroom 108 were un-bricked, and the light is pouring in!  During a renovation in the 1930s, these windows were in-filled with bricks to create a darkened lecture hall.  However, the new Parrington calls for this first floor classroom to be an active classroom, rather than one configured with lecture seating.  Therefore, we wanted to restore these windows to their original state and bring in as much natural light into the building as possible.  Check out these before and after photos!
