1-25-2021 - Hi All,
Due to Covid restrictions, access to the West Charleston Check-out area, print lab, and studio will be a little odd - as befitting any place where Miss Lettie and I (Doug Bibo) are. There is not a class in session, the building will likely be locked. Students will need to call and make reservations to pick up/return equipment or use the facilities.  In some cases we may actually meet students at the door to exchange equipment.
Here is the office Number.  702.651.7317
The computer lab in the C building will be open and has the Adobe Suite.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Professor Heather Protz
