New learning space for Trident media students

NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - What is usually considered "behind the scenes" was on full display at Trident Technical College.

The school held an open house for their newly remodeled film, media and visual arts production facility.  The studios, classrooms, editing suites and computer labs are located within the 950 building.

"If you don't have professional quality equipment to teach people on, they're not going to be prepared for the marketplace when they leave and we certainly now have that," faculty member John Watson said.  He adds there are many local job opportunities for students after graduation, including on the set of the television series "Army Wives."

The college will also open a Wellness Center accessible by current students and faculty on March 18th.
