All of the chairs (lecture chairs with the little desks) in Berthoud 241 squeak so much that it becomes a huge distraction during exams
In Berthoud 241, where I have taken more than one exam now, the folding chairs and small desks that accompany them (which are tiny) squeak a lot more than most lecture halls do. It's hard to concentrate during a calculus test when there are 200 other people in the hall moving the desks even just a little bit, which makes them squeak. I wouldn't have said anything unless it was such a big deal. I feel like people in Cal I and II who have taken a test in there would agree with me.
This issue has been resolved. USG treached out to facilities and a work order 92753 was made and accomplished.
The USG Sophomore Class sent out a survey about exam rooms and we received very valuable feedback on testing rooms. Berthoud 241 is one of the locations that need improvements and the Sophomore Class completely agrees with you. We are currently talking to the Registrar about changing/improving the exam rooms used in common hour exams.
Thank you for you time!
They are also annoying during lectures and presentations. I'd love to see some real desks/tables in there eventually, but for now can we get a little WD-40?
I have to take a class in that room and it drives me nuts that the chairs 1) squeak at ANY slight movement/readjustment and 2) provide absolutely NO back support at all. If I try to shift my weight to the back of the chair, it leans back. All the way back. I'm staring at the ceiling. And the desks are WAY to small to use for anything - they don't fit my spiral notebook and god forbid I need to take a test/quiz with the questions paper, my equations sheet, my calculator, and possibly a scantron. Everything is in my lap besides what I'm writing on, and even then I'm moving the paper so that there is a hard surface beneath where on it I need to write. The chairs/desks in BE 241 just don't make any sense. I also don't understand why that room has curtains.
