TV Studio @CapitalAbout the College TV Studio

  • The Television Studio and Control Room are located on the 10th floor within the Academic Media Technology suite.  Since the studio is also used for professional production by the College, only those students who are registered for Communication classes and who participate in the CSN Student News Club have access to these facilities -- under staff supervision -- for their work during the semester.

  • Absolutely no food or beverages are allowed in the studio. This helps keep the studio clean, and also prevents any possible spills into delicate and expensive equipment.

  • Please clean up all equipment that you have used, leaving it as neat as, or neater than, you found it. Not taking care of the studio will adversely affect your grade.
