New and old SHSU FAMC students settle into new “Creative Community”
The Houstonian (Sep. 2) discusses the recent changes to Belvin-Buchanan Hall and the new “Creative Community” one finds there:
The Creative Community is a space that has been built in the lower level of the Belvin-Buchanan Hall, designed specifically and exclusively for students majoring in Fine Arts and Mass Communications (FAMC) who have chosen to reside in the Belvin dorm for the 2015-2016 school year.
This was designed to be a space where FAMC students can utilize state of the art facilities to work on assignments for their various classes as well as to practice and work on personal and creative projects.
Many FAMC students have moved into the Belvin-Buchanan dorm this semester. Some of them returning upper classmen and many new freshmen.
The brand new space includes different facilities and equipment for students to use at their disposal. Inside the space there is a dance rehearsal hall, a handful of music isolation rooms, a recording studio and a small theater complete with a stage space and a projector screen.
Students are impressed and excited about the ease of access to the Creative Community. The facility is open to residents 24 hours a day which gives them a place to work and rehearse without having to travel to the different areas on campus.
