Usually, everyone at American Univeristy chooses individually what to wear for class, depending on the weather, the season or the personal style and mood. In Mary Graydon Center (MGC), where most of the courses at School of Communication take place, there is an additional, but not less crucial, factor that students and faculty need to take into consideration when choosing what to wear: temperature!
Located on the third floor in Mary Graydon Center, MGC 303A and MGC 324 are both rooms that require special preparation for everyone attending or holding a course. While MGC 303A is known as the "hot room," with very intense heating in the winter and rather slow air conditioning in the summer, MGC 324 is known as the "cold room," with a very efficient air conditioning system. To adapt to the predetermined termperature in the class, students and faculty meeting in room MGC 303A should remember what parents like to tell their kids: wear multiple layers!
It might well be that someone will be sitting in a T-shirt in room MGC although it's snowing outside. The same is true for room MGC 324: bringing a sweater or sweatshirt is never a bad idea.
