The Art & Design Department operates four computer labs housed in Mahoney Hall. Each lab is equipped with eighteen, 27 inch iMac stations, break-out tables, critique walls with track lighting, an instructor computer station, HP large color laser printer, and an Epson Expression flatbed and film scanner. Each computer lab has an 80 inch LCD screen for display, a full sound system, and dry erase magnetic boards for additional display and handwritten lecture notes. All computer labs feature secure WIFI and internal network connection. The four computer labs are loaded with current versions of the Adobe CC Suite. Mahoney 111 is our specialty animation lab. This lab features all of the above, as well as eighteen, 22 inch Wacom touch tablets with interactive pens. Our computer labs are located in Mahoney 103, 111, 206 and B-8.
Students and faculty may utilize the computer labs Monday through Friday with ID card access. Labs are also staffed during evening and weekend hours, creating plenty of opportunities for students who require lab hours outside of the regular class schedule.
Students working on their B.F.A. capstone projects in graphic design have access to studio space in a secure area. They are given card access and can use the Senior Studio Space 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These studio spaces are awarded through an application process reviewed every semester by a faculty committee.
