Graphics and New Media Labs -
Hill 309 & South Hall104 (New Media Lab)
Moravian College has two state-of-the-art Macintosh computer labs
equipped for applications in graphic design and new media, including
digital photography and video. Both have Macintosh G5 computers and software including the latest versions of Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Other new media programs are also installed on each computer, such as Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, and FinalCut. A large font library is also available.
Also included in the labs are several flat-bed scanning stations.
Black-and-white printers and 11x17 color printers are available in both labs. A large-format printer, which can print up to 42 inches wide, is located in the New Media Lab. The New Media Lab also has an Epson printer that can perform special processes, including printing on hand-made paper and other surfaces. The Epson printer is available for faculty and advanced students by special request. Lab fees charged to students in graphic design/new media classes cover initial printing costs, and additional money can be deposited by students into color printing accounts, as needed.
Space is made available on the Moravian College network for students in classes using the labs; it is cleaned up on a regular basis. Students are asked to save their work to flash drives or external hard-drives.
Both computer labs are open on a regular basis for student use when classes are not in session. Advanced graphic design students work as lab monitors, under the supervision of the South Campus Computer Lab Technician.
There is also a comparably equipped Macintosh lab in Memorial Hall, Main Campus, to enable students living on Main Campus to work outside class time without traveling to Hurd (South) Campus.
