STATESBORO — With classes relying on Zoom as a way to reach all students with classroom occupancy limits there are those who have issues getting from one class in person to the next online.

The University has widely available computer labs along with a far reaching WiFi network for students to be able to set up shop on campus without having to commute back home between classes.

“Additionally, some colleges have identified rooms that are not in use during specific times and have designated them as study rooms — those also can be used for Zoom classes.” wrote Carl Reiber, provost and vice president of academic affairs, in an email to The George-Anne.

These Zoom Rooms can be found via posts on bulletin boards boldly labeled “ZOOM” where it lays out the location of the rooms as well as when they are available.

Once you get to these Zoom rooms, they have a sheet on the door restating the particular room’s schedule along with the classroom capacity.

Just like any other area on campus make sure to maintain social distance if there are others utilizing the room and keep an eye on the room’s person limit.
