As students returned to campus today, they were welcomed back with brand new classrooms in Chapman Hall! Room 605 has been transformed into a high-definition screening room, complete with new carpets, furniture, and updated technology to maximize the learning experience. Rooms 610 and 612 have been combined into a new media production classroom with updated computers with all the software needed for student success. There is also a brand new production lab! We hope our students will benefit from the new set up this semester. We are looking forward to starting phase two of construction to complete the Center for New Media.


Renovations in the lower level of Chapman Hall began this week as part of phase one for the cutting-edge Center for New Media. Phase one, set to be complete for the Fall 2013 semester, includes updating and combining existing classrooms. After phase one is complete, there will be a high definition screening room, a new media production lab, and a new media production classroom.

Phase two is currently in the works. Construction will begin later this academic year. Phase two will likely include a high-definition television-film studio, a video control room, an audio and music recording control room, a voice-over booth, editing booths, a new media collaborative classroom/newsroom, a green room, set storage, and a radio station.

In the end, the Center for New Media will offer a state-of-the-art, digitally rich, and interactive learning environment for our students. Stay tuned as the renovations progress!
