[PHOTOS] Center for New Media Grand Opening

On Thursday, October 23, we hosted a Grand Opening of our new Center for New Media. Construction was recently completed on the 5,718 square-feet remodel, which includes a high-definition broadcast studio, a video control room, an audio and music recording control room, editing suites, a green room, a high-definition screening room, and three state-of the-art computer lab classrooms. The new facility also includes an FCC-approved radio station, WMDX 107.5 FM.

During the event, President Anna Wasescha, President and General Manager of WLIS/WMRD-AM Don DeCesare, Center for New Media Director Rich Lenoce, and Senator Richard Blumenthal addressed guests. After that, guests went on tours of the Center for New Media now that all the equipment is in place.

In November 2012, Middlesex Community College was a recipient of a $2.5 million U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Act Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant for a New Media Studies initiative. This new initiative is designed to meet the state’s needs for skilled workers in new media industries. Besides funding a space on campus for the Center, this grant has funded curriculum development and implementation for four key programs at MxCC: Broadcast-Cinema, Communication, Fine Arts/Graphic Design, and Multimedia.

It was a really great event and we are so thankful to all who came out to celebrate this milestone with us!
