Happy New Year and Welcome back! We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable winter break.  The SoC Production Equipment Room will begin checking out equipment again for Spring 2020, on January 21.  In order to have your booking permissions activated for Spring 2020, you must currently be enrolled in a production course. Your professor must have submitted the class roll and approved you to begin production.  We must also have a signed copy of the SoC Production Agreement Form on file.  If you are working on a UMTV show, we will need an updated crew list from your faculty/staff advisor.

Have a great Semester.
