Representatives of Marshall University and Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP cut a ribbon to celebrate the opening of the DHG SmartRoom, the most technologically advanced room in the College of Business last Thursday in Suite 106 of Corbly Hall.
“We wanted the experience to be more than just a name on a plaque,” said Rick Slater, Managing Partner of DHG. “As we’ve witnessed big changes in business and technology, our partners have become even more passionate about making an impact on campuses across our footprint.”
“We can’t thank DHG enough,” said Dr. Deanna Mader, interim dean of the College of Business. “This new facility will serve our faculty and students very well.”
Marshall received a gift of $150,000 from the certified public accounting firm of Dixon Hughes Goodman, designated toward renovation of room 106 of Corbly Hall on Marshall’s Huntington campus, in May. The room, now known as the Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP SmartRoom, features a 24-inch, multi-touch Smart Podium Display from Smart Technologies; dual 80-inch LED flat-panel displays; and high-density wireless services. In addition, the room is furnished with new seating and tables with capacity for 58 students, as well as updated lighting controllable by zones.
