Unleash your creativity in a state-of-the-art setting

Quinnipiac’s School of Communications has created a state-of-the-art open-air studio, located in the school’s atrium in the Center for Communications, Computing and Engineering. Chris Roush, dean of the School of Communications, believes the introduction of this studio differentiates Quinnipiac from other institutions and provides a “wow” factor for prospective students.

“The studio gives our students access to the latest technology, and they experience what it’s like to be live on a remote set, which is basically what this set is,” says Roush. “We’re constantly looking to upgrade our technology so our students can hit the ground running when they graduate.”

The new space features advanced technology including remote cameras, touchscreen switching controls and automated audio that is more advanced than many professional media operations. With Sleeping Giant State Park serving as the backdrop, students will be able to work on a variety of projects and gain invaluable experience and knowledge with access to the 16-by-16-foot studio.
