What Can I Do in the Design Studios?

The Digital Design Studios provide students with resources for their various class-related design and production needs. Each studio is equipped with computers (PC and Mac) to provide students with the tools to make digital projects, including web development, graphics and animation, digital audio and video, and multimedia authoring using a number of software programs.

The knowledgeable Student Technology Assistance Team (STAT) is available during all open hours to assist students with DSLR cameras and camcorders as well as peripheral equipment such as microphones, tripods, and lighting equipment. They also provide one-on-one help to students enrolled in a variety of classes that use multimedia, such as Digital Filmmaking, Digital Design, ASL, Photography, Theatre and 4D Design as well as many other classes in which multimedia projects are required.
