The square set up is another option for groups of 16 or fewer. This set up will require some individuals to have their backs to the presentation space up front. If your group does not plan on having any presentations this is a good option.

Classroom-style seating is where all individuals are facing forward. This set up accommodates up to 30 people and is best for meetings that require a lot of presenting or use of supplemental materials. The more seats required, the less space there is to move around. If you are seeking something more spacious, we recommend reserving another meeting room on campus and having the Group Decision Center come to your location.
