BHSU-RC is perfect for large gatherings as well. We have a tiered lecture hall that can accommodate 100 people. This room is equipped with video-conferencing capability as well as a large projection screen for PowerPoint presentations and videos, as well as a public address system with wireless microphones that allow everyone in the room to feel like they are in the front row.

In addition to the lecture hall, BHSU-RC has five other rooms with video-conferencing capabilities. Our video-conferencing rooms can accommodate 14-40 people. An iPad programmed to the room’s conferencing system provides users the ability to access a complete range of video-conferencing technologies including automated cameras and a microphone system.
