  2. Sep. 17, 2018Clocks Incorrect - J.R. Coutts Engineering Lecture Hall

    What is happening? The clocks in J.R. Coutts Engineering Lecture Hall are not working due to the fire restoration taking place in Physics. The systems are tied together, so unfortunately the clocks will continue to show the wrong time until the restoration is complete. If all goes well estimated completion is November. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your patience during construction.
