CK 305 SCS offers many technology support services for your students: Gear2Go equipment loans, SCS Studio production facilities (for students of all majors), tutorial assistance, laptop troubleshooting and repairs, large-format printing and a PC/Mac lab open 90 hours a week, just to name a few.

 

You probably know that. But, what you may not know is that SCS also collaborates with faculty to support multimedia-based assignments. Your students might not be media production majors, but with your guidance, their creativity and just enough help from SCS, they may surprise you (and themselves).

If you're interested, come in from the cold, relax on an equatorial beach (compliments of our green screen setup), and learn--even experience--what SCS can do for you and your students.
