Students walk into the classroom as individuals and walk out as confident members of a Crew. Besides learning how to produce a variety of media, students develop a great appreciation and understanding of the art of moving pictures and broadcast journalism. 

Making media together is a great opportunity to create lifelong friendships. One walks into the classroom an individual and walks out a confident member of a Crew.
