Marietta College hopes renovations strike a chord with new music program
Meanwhile, some of the Communications and Mass Media classrooms and office space will remain in McKinney, as will the television studio. The college radio station space will be moved into a newly-renovated room downstairs, where a dark room used to be, while music therapy will occupy the upper floor. More Communications classes will be moved into nearby Mills Hall, where some are already held.
“This is really allowing us to utilize the space that exists in the best way,” said Tom Perry, director of strategic communications and marketing for the college. “This transition can be made because of the size of the programs and even the changes to the way these programs are taught. You don’t need something like a dark room any more.”
