  2. Sanctioned student organizations may hold meetings in these conference rooms but reservations must be made by the faculty advisor and at least one member of the College Administration, Faculty or Staff must check out the key and be present at any meeting in these rooms.
  3. Before leaving, it is the responsibility of the Faculty/Staff sponsor or meeting organizer (as listed on the room reservation) to ensure all equipment is secure, the room is left in a neat and orderly fashion, the meeting room doors are locked and that the key is returned.
  4. Beverages and other refreshments may be provided by Food Services for the Board of Trustees Conference Room and Conference Room 1B and must be arranged by the meeting sponsor or convener, not by library staff. Catered events are discouraged in the Leon and Betty Wahrhaftig Conference Room.
