Maintaining momentum in design and digital media

The Design and Media Arts Center is located on the third floor of Lynn's library.

In October 2017, Boca Raton-based Digital Media Arts College joined Lynn University to become the Christine E. Lynn College of Communication and Design. One year later, the integration of both cultures is complete and enhancing opportunities for the college’s students.

This summer, the third floor of the Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Library transformed into the Design and Media Arts Center. The redesign created coworking spaces for faculty, a student lounge and gaming center, and additional areas for private and small group meetings. It also created room for a digital animation lab with multiple dedicated computers that accompany relocated motion capture technology.

The renovations further overhauled technology in several classrooms and boosted server technology and capacity to more than double existing performance. This additional power enabled several computer labs across campus to receive upgrades that include new machines with professional-grade animation and editing software.

Students also are benefiting from the transformation of all eight-week undergraduate course curricula to 15-week semesters. In addition to studying topics more intensely over a longer period of time, students can take a wider variety of electives, including practical courses in television and multimedia.

More hands-on experiences, like the Pulse Agency class, are available for those who want to advise real-world clients and manage advertising production processes. Students more interested in design also can produce animated and print-ready editorial cartoons for channels managed by another class that oversees the student-run news organization, iPulse.
