Given overwhelmingly positive feedback from students and parents who joined Lynn University in November last year, the university announced earlier this month that all College of Communication and Design students will attend classes on Lynn’s main campus at 3601 N. Military Trail by the Fall 2018 semester.
The move, according to Gregg Cox, vice president for academic affairs, will help students used to taking classes one mile away at the Design and Media Arts Center studios enjoy easier access to the benefits of Lynn’s campus. Benefits include student services, entertainment and sporting events, housing, dining, and health and wellness facilities. Lynn’s campus also offers important academic facilities, including its audio production facility with superior acoustics, and an enhanced television studio with blue screens, green screens and other modernizations.
In addition, the university announced that all on-campus undergraduate programs in communication and design will be offered in 15-week terms beginning Aug. 27. The move, supported by the College of Communication and Design faculty, ensures a consistent experience for all students. Because students will take more courses simultaneously, they’ll have twice as long to complete their work—a change teachers believe leads to more immersion into the subject and ultimately better learning. The move also improves scheduling opportunities and gives students more access to non-major courses.
Students will be able to view new class locations and the 15-week schedule when they begin registering for classes later this week.
