Media Activities Center (MAC)

The Media Activities Center (MAC), located on the lower level of Newcomb Hall, provides a variety of technology resources to support media and general student organizations.

Intended as a center of collaboration, the MAC hosts a community table at which students can work together at a large table, sharing imagery from up to 6 laptop computers on a LCD display.  There are 6 booths with the capability to hook a laptop up to a LCD display.  Additionally, there are 5 large LCD screens throughout the space that can be used separately or in conjunction for presentations, group conversations and trainings.  For a low-tech option, there are wipe boards located throughout the room as well.

In addition to the various collaborative opportunities in the MAC, there are a multitude of 27” iMAC computers with design software installed, laptop bars and seating areas for independent and collaborative work.
