Back in the 1950's the 3rd Floor of Founders Hall was home to many science labs like this one. The science labs have been in the Read Center since 1999.

Back in the 1970's until 1999 when it moved to the Read Center, the Media Hub occupied spaces in the north end of the 3rd Floor including in the hallway. Pictured is the sign-in desk for the old Media Hub then called the Center for Instructional Communication or CIC.
