Swipe Access

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 digital media software may use the Macintosh computers in the lower level of ADM/SCO. Those machines have the same software and are available 24 hours a day.

Policies

  • 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.

Student Assistant

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.
