St. Clair opens mediaplex

June 25, 2010

Last Thursday, St. Clair College celebrated the opening of its new mediaplex, which occupies the renovated former Salvation Army building in Windsor. The 16,000-square-foot mediaplex includes 2 computer labs, 4 classrooms, 4 television edit bays, a radio control room, and a television control room. It's expected that about 120 journalism and tourism and travel students will move into the new facility in September from the St. Clair Centre for the Arts, where classes have been held up to now. Last September, the federal government pledged $5 million for enhancements to St. Clair's journalism program. The college plans to add a public relations course next year, with publishing and media convergence studies being added in 2012. Windsor Star
