Experience the Future of Media and Communication
Welcome to the Experience Hub, where content meets the cutting edge. We’ve upgraded our historic building with a beating digital heart known as the Experience Hub. It’s part production studio, part research center, part hands-on learning lab—a place where students and faculty collaborate to develop innovative content and examine the media from every angle.
Explore new vistas for storytelling in the immersive media lab, where you can learn about and experiment with emerging technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, and 360-degree video.
What fuels social media trends? How can analytics drive better content decisions? In the social media lab, you’ll explore these questions while sharing your work and making connections around the world.
In the self-contained photo and video studio, you’ll produce and screen your own visual communication pieces with the help of a control room and pro-quality lighting, sound, and video systems. Our state-of-the-art editing bay offers the latest high-tech tools for editing professional-level videos of all types, from award-winning documentaries to strategic campaigns and multimedia stories.
The podcast studio is all about creating high-quality audio. Refine your oral storytelling skills while gaining experience in one of the fastest-growing media forms.
We’re big fans of fieldwork. With an expanded suite for equipment checkout—a.k.a. the J-Cage—you’ll have access to more tech you can take with you, including the latest digital cameras, mics, video and photo lighting kits, tripods, and monopods..
Hone your wordsmithing skills at Writing Central, our popular peer-coaching writing program. When Writing Central’s not in session, you can use this flexible collaborative space to work on group projects.
The Experience Hub serves as ground zero for the Center for Science Communication Research, our on-campus research center dedicated to enhancing public understanding of science and tech advancements.
With our expanded Student Services suite, you’ll be able to get one-on-one guidance from our award-winning advisors for all the big questions, like your major, your classes, and your career path.
