The Media Arts Center is located on the second floor of the University Commons and serves as a space for classes in departments such as Arts Technology and Administration, Art, English and more. Part of Performance Learning is entering the workforce with knowledge and experience of the tools and technology for that field. That is exactly what the Media Arts Center brings to Millikin students.

Students have access to 19 Macintosh computers and one handicap accessible machine complete with the latest Adobe Creative Suite software and other software that aids the completion of digital media artistic and business projects. The Media Arts Center is also equipped with ShareLink technology, which allows any machine to project images on the large projector wirelessly. Students can collaborate or meet with client at the conference table, and have access to three printers, one color laser printer capable of printing tabloid size, one greyscale laser printer capable of printing legal size, and one color large format printer that can print paper as large as 60 inches.
With the exception of special events and workshops, this space is reserved for students currently enrolled in classes taught in the Media Arts Center. Other students wishing to use the digital media software may use the Macintosh computers in the lower level of ADM Scovill. Those machines have the same software and are available 24 hours a day.
- Laser printing is funded by course fees of the classes in the lab, thus only prints of media work designed for Media Arts Center class projects are allowed in this space. There is a charge for printing on the large format printer and it is determined by the size requested.
- If there is a class in session and open seats available, students may come in quietly and work on class assignments during the class.
Each semester a student is employed primarily to tutor students with lab technology. The student assistant hours are posted in the Media Arts Center.
Additionally, this student serves as a design consultant creating media requests for campus needs such as icons, brochures, posters, videos, and more. If you would like to partner with the Student Assistant in completing a media project contact Media Arts Center Director, Jessa Wilcoxen for information on feasibility and availability.
