Alumni Network Event

Check out the photos from our Alumni Network Event on Saturday, November 7. Alumni from the Center for New Media programs got together to reconnect with each other and start up an alumni group for these majors. We had alumni as far back at 1979 show up, recent grads from the last few years, and everyone in between. Stay tuned for more information as we start to form an alumni group to provide networking opportunities and other events for our Center for New Media alumni.


MxCC alumni in Broadcast Communications, Broadcast-Cinema, Communication, Communication Arts, Multimedia, Digital Arts, Graphic Design, and related certificate programs are invited to attend an Alumni Networking Meeting and Open House on Saturday, November 7 at our new facility in Chapman Hall, Lower Level.

The Alumni Networking Meeting will meet in room 605 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Following the meeting, alumni are invited to stay for an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in rooms 610-634.

Help us form a new Alumni Network! Reconnect with former classmates and meet other alumni from different eras. Make connections that could help you professionally. Meet current students, faculty and staff. See our new $2.5 million dollar studio and production facilities, if you haven’t already!

We are looking forward to seeing you! If you can attend, please email Professor John Shafer.

On Monday, September 21 Middlesex Community College’s Corporate Media Center (CMC) and Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEEP) premiered their latest collaboration: a video on green cleaning myths at the DEEP Headquarters in Hartford, Conn. The video premiered to an audience of local and state school and health officials.

The 8 minute video was commissioned by the DEEP to to educate school employees and parents about the hazards of common cleaning products while showing the benefit and effectiveness of using green cleaners. In this video parody of the popular Discovery Channel television show, the Wastebusters work with scientists to prove that green cleaning products work as well as regular cleaners.

The Wastebusters video is getting a lot of attention. The CT Department of Public Health (DPH) is in the process of getting the video on all school district websites across the state. Here are some links to the coverage the video has received:

Working under Dan Nocera, coordinator of the Corporate Media Center at MxCC, the video took multiple staff, faculty, and students to produce. Because of partnerships like this, students in the Center for New Media get an opportunity to do hands-on video work.
