The new Allen Hall is the home to the Art and Communication and Theatre departments, combining faculty and staff who previously resided in old Allen Hall and Hemlock. The building includes new spaces for the Art Gallery (previously in North Hall), photography and dark room studio, a ceramics studio, a print-making studio, wood shop, and a painting studio. A new dual-boot iMAC graphics design computer classroom and a digital PC computer classroom provide instructional facilities for digital art and media.
The Communications and Theatre department has a brand new Television studio with multiple production sets and High-definition cameras. An Audio studio with production and mixing facilities is housed next door to the TV control room. The building has direct connection into the campus Cable Television head-end for satellite signal and production programming from either the inside or mobile television studios.
At the west end of the building, a 120 seat auditorium/lecture room is equipped as an electronic smart classroom with a Crestron control system, a Hitachi Starboard, and CT’s Johnny-5 classroom cart.
Electronics in the building include fully 802.11n MERU wireless throughout the building for easy access to the fastest wireless signal available on Mansfield Wireless network as well as our wired connections.
