  4. 4. The IndoCanLinks Classroom A $150,000 donation from IndoCanLinks toward the Brown Family House of Learning, opened at TRU in 2011, is recognized on the facility’s third floor, a hub for quiet studying and library access. The IndoCanLinks Classroom (HL304), provides the TRU Math Department with a great space for the Math Help Centre and Math Club. It is a bright room with a beautiful view, close to the mathematics faculty offices, where students can study, work together, and get help with mathematics. Every weekday throughout the terms, the IndoCanLinks Classroom houses the Math Help Centre, where students get free help with their first- and second-year level mathematics and statistics courses. It sees approximately 1,000 student visits per term and the department employs six upper-level and graduate students part-time as tutors. After hours, the Math Club uses the space for seminars and other club functions. For example, the Math Club uses the room to prepare the students participating in the annual Putnam Mathematical Competition and will host the First TRU Mathematical Competition in March 9, 2019. The Math Club also maintains a bulletin board, where challenging weekly problems are posted to stimulate a passion for learning mathematics. In these ways, the IndoCanLinks Classroom is used by hundreds of mathematics students of all levels every year.
