CSIS/Digital Media students tour CSUMB

A group of  14 Gavilan students accompanied Bob Beede to the event as part of the new CTE Collaborative grant we recently received.  CSUMB invited Hartnell and Gavilan students to their media center to learn about the new programs they are offering. The students had a chance to meet with instructors and to see the types of projects they are doing in these two programs. Gavilan and Hartnell have been working with CSUMB on an articulated Digital Media to Communication Design program.
