Dear MCAD Community,
Dear MCAD Community,
Dear MCAD Students,
Thank you for reaching out with your excitement and questions after our initial Art Sale announcement. The Art Sale is a team effort and we are thrilled to offer it this year online.
If you are new to the sale (hey new students!) or are interested in more information, check out our MCAD Art Sale Online Q & A.
Here are a few important updates to note from our last email:

Organization Name: Visual Arts
Multi-faceted business dealing with art for commercial projects. Must have some art knowledge and experience, social media, graphic design.
Dear MCAD Community,
MCAD's internet / server outage has been resolved and the campus is back to a normal operating status.
We want to thank you-students, faculty, and staff-for your patience and understanding today as we had to quickly work through an unexpected failure of our hardware system during a routine maintenance update yesterday. Thankfully our IT team worked diligently this morning to find a solution to get us back up and running before midday. Over the next several weeks we will work on improving on-campus internet service.
50% OFF on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for any purchases made by students, faculty or staff.
Feature Menu item offered all week is our PASTA BOWL topped with your choice of Sausage Meatballs, Sliced Grilled Chicken, Tofu or Roasted Vegetables and your choice of Marinara or Alfredo Sauce. Both sauces are vegetarian and the Marinara sauce is also vegan. Each bowl is served with a warm bread stick.
Highlights include Community Supported Art and Hinge Arts Residency.
We've all had quite the year and some new faces at the Media Center, so we figured we should give you an update on who to look out for at the Media Center:
We want to congratulate Emma Young on being promoted from Media Circulation Specialist to Media Circulation Coordinator! Emma has worked at MCAD for just over a year and has shown a tremendous drive to get things done and willingness to help anyone in need!

I am writing to you because we are looking for notetakers. Being a notetaker is a position that pays $13.25/hour. You are paid for your time in class spent taking notes, and up to 30 minutes outside of class spent scanning or typing your notes. For studio classes, this can be 30 minutes or more per class, and for Liberal Arts classes, this can be up to three hours per class.
The requirements to be considered to be a notetaker are:
Career Development is, once again, hosting Virtual Mock Interview Day. This is a great opportunity to practice your interviewing skills. This semester, we are featuring professionals from the staffing/recruitment firm, Creative Circle.
Mock Interview Day is Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Virtual mock interviews begin at 9:00 a.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. They will occur via Google Meet.
The Media Center is pleased to announce a new member being added to our team - Isabel Gloss will be working at the Media Center this semester as an Artwork Documentation Assistant starting September 15th! Isabel is here to help you document your artwork around campus or in the Black and Gray Studios.
Google is changing its chat client from "Hangouts Chat" To simply "Chat". Chat has a different UI, and among the new features are team rooms that support better team collaboration.
Beginning September 28th, all teams will be using Chat for 1:1 direct messages (DMs), group messages, and team discussions. Classic Hangouts apps will be turned off.
It's important to do the following before September 28th as classic Hangout apps will stop working:
A friendly reminder that with fall like weather on us and winter around the corner, it's important to dress in layers when coming to MCAD.
The Art Cellar's hours will change to our normal semester hours starting next Monday, September 14.
We will be open 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the rest of the semester.
If you haven't stopped by the store yet this semester please do, we would love to see everyone :)
Starting October 13, 2020, Google Drive is making a change so that its trash behaves more consistently with the rest of the G Suite services with regards to automatic deletion. This means that any file that is put into Google Drive's 'My Drive' trash will be automatically deleted after 30 days.
