Project Description:
A seminar room like this one is usually distinguished by having a large table around which chairs are arranged, board-room style. The instructor or discussion leader typically sits at the head of the table. Seminar rooms are intended for holding seminars, or small discussion-based classes, usually for advanced students with a certain level of commitment to the subject. Because seminars can meet for three or so hours at a time, the chairs may be better cushioned than those in a standard classroom. When not in use for classes, seminar rooms are commonly used for faculty meetings, small receptions, etc.
