*For the most part, you can ignore the "max 2 hours" signs in the highlighted areas.
Restaurants located in the downtown region (some of these are not in walking distance).

Yes. All rooms have computers running Microsoft Windows 10, a projector, sound system, and various input cables. Someone will be available to log you in before you present. You will not be able to set up in advance because the computers reset their image after each log out, which means that everything is deleted.
I suggest bringing everything on a flash drive or having an online presentation ready (think Google Presentation or Prezi). However, you could theoretically bring your laptop and plug it in to our tech carts with the cables that are already available there; however, the chances for unexplainable failure are higher.
