PARDON OUR DUST
Welcome back for the Fall semester 2014!
If you are looking for us in the “C” building, look no more. The “C” building is undergoing a big digital renovation as part of the Prop S & N funding approved in 2002 and 2006. The project is expected to be finished in 2016. In the meantime, the Radio, TV and Film department will be temporarily housed on the third floor of the “T” building
(across the bridge from the bookstore.) The faculty offices will be in T316 through T320 (same hallway where City Times is located). Most classes will be held in the T building and the L building.
A few classes will also be in other buildings around campus, so look for signs, ask for help and plan accordingly. T330 (north end of the building) will be a central hub of activity for equipment and computer labs. A temporary TV studio will be built in T315, but we won’t have a control room until the renovation is completed. As a result, at least two of our courses will be held off-campus.
RTVF 145, “Television News Production,” better known as Newscene, will be taught in Mission Valley at the headquarters of UT-TV. Students will get a hands- on, real-world experience. Staff members from UT-TV will also be there to assist in the learning process. The Emmy Award-winning news program, “Newscene” will still air on ITV, the County Education Channel (16 on Cox and Time Warner) on Fridays at 6:00 p.m.
RTVF 118, “TV Studio Operations,” will also be held off campus at the new Downtown Library. Students should report to City College on the first day of class, where they will receive instructions for the remainder of the semester. We also want to welcome two new full-time faculty members, Professors Chris Acedo, and Cy Kuckenbaker! Thank you for working with us during our temporary classroom and office relocation. Once construction is complete for our Radio, TV and Film department, we can all anticipate great new opportunities in our state-of-the-art instructional space. We look forward to seeing you!
