Edgerly Hall was first used as "an eighth-grade model and practice school," which made it one of the first junior high schools in America. It has now become home to the Mathematics and Computer Science departments, in addition to computer labs and classrooms. The Mathematics department offers:

  • A computer lab with 25 PCs, high-capacity laser printer, and sophisticated software used both in mathematics classes and in many businesses that employ mathematicians
  • Projectors that allow faculty to present material while students are working with the same software
  • A seminar room housing the departmental library and a flat screen TV with computer hook up
  • Two PCs for student and part-time faculty
