RANGER RESTART: Updates, resources, and FAQs

Adobe Creative Cloud Requirements

During the fall 2020 semester, all graphic design courses, and courses that are taught in the graphic design studios will be utilizing one room to conduct all Face to Face (F2F) instruction. RITA L127 will be set up with a Promethean board, an instructor’s station, and two student stations. Instructors may choose to conduct F2F Question and Answer sessions, individual critiques and meetings, and small group critiques in this space. Students will be required to wear masks and socially distance while in the room. There will be cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer provided for students to use before and after the use of the room. Cleaning protocols will be posted in the space and must be followed. Students will only be allowed in that room with the instructor.

You will not have access to a graphic design specific computer lab during the fall 2020 semester. You will be able to check out a computer if you do not have access to one off campus. Please follow the questions below to see if you have a device that will support Adobe Creative Cloud.
