Graphic Design, Computer Animation, and Newmedia are located in rooms 417, 419, 438,
and 454 on the fourth floor of the FAC building. Currently there are three full-time
professors who are supported by adjunct instructors as needed. Our proximity to Nashville
provides opportunities to invite professionals to engage with design students through
lectures and portfolio reviews.
Room 419 serves as a large classroom, with eighteen adjustable drafting tables, where students are involved in traditional, hands on methods. This room has two industrial-sized aluminum sinks and additional work surfaces for group projects.
Each design class uses at least one of our three computer labs. Room 417 and 438 have twenty-one computer stations equipped with the latest Adobe Creative Cloud Suite of programs and Maya software. Each room has a scanner, two printers, an overhead projector, and sound system. Room 454 has fifteen Mac stations and a large HD screen for instructional lectures and student presentations.
All classrooms and stations are online and Wi-Fi connected. Enrolled design students have 24-hour access to a computer lab, with the exception of University holidays.
