The School of Health Sciences Suite was constructed in the summer of 2017 after being designed by the Athletic Training and Exercise Science Faculty to enhance learning and maximize space.
Both AT classrooms have combination tables with removable pads that allow the table to convert from a student desk to an evaluation table. Room 105 also includes a 10 station taping bench.
