The Varsity Club Room is the larger conference room of the Hall of Fame. It includes an overhead projector as well as a large screen on the South wall that can be unveiled when use of projector is needed. The North side of the room can be opened at two access points, thus adjoining this space with the Smith Conference Room. The East side of the room opens up into the Atrium and then onto a large variety of exhibits that any Hawkeye sports fan would love to view. This space is ideal for conferences, receptions, birthday parties, and other social gatherings.
