6 Student Reflections “I was surprised to see the new set up, and was pleased with the changes made. I think the way the sim lab is now set up is more conducive to learning because it is more realistic.” “This was my first time using the new lab and it was absolutely amazing. I’m jealous of the underclassmen who have the privilege of using this lab from the beginning.”
