600s Building/HDTV

The HDTV building was opened in 1983.  It originally housed the drafting and woodshop programs.  It was originally around 6,000 square feet and contained a drafting room, offices, project storage rooms, storage rooms for lumber, a finishing room, and sections for sheet metal working and welding.  (Auburndale Star, 11/25/82)  In 2008, woodshop was closed and the industral arts classes were moved to the extension in the North Campus building.  From 2008-2012, the building was used for storage and as a temporary media center while the North Campus library was being redone.  The interior was gutted and turned into a state-of-the-art TV center for the HDTV classes in 2011, including a studio, control rooms, and classroom.  Prior to this, HDTV had been housed in two classrooms down in North Campus.
