When students graduate from the digital media production major, they’re often expected to use industry-standard equipment immediately as they step into their first jobs. Thanks to the Student Resource Lab (SRL) in Franklin Hall, where students can check out more than 3,000 pieces of equipment, they’ll have had plenty of practice in the classroom before graduating.
