Chowan Graphic Communications Students Printed Own USB Drives

On Friday, November 20, 2020, Chowan University’s Graphic Communications students printed USB drives for the Fellows Seminar classes in the Horner Production Lab. This project was created after Dr. Mitchell Henke, Associate Professor of Graphic Communications, and Dr. Michelle Surerus, Professor of Graphic Communications, wanted to design an assignment that would bring their seminar classes together to build a sense of community within the Fellows program, which has contributed to the boost in University retention levels. Using the Fellows logo, Dr. Henke completed the printing process by creating a file that will be used on the Acuity then set up a fixture to hold the USB drives during the printing process. The importance of this innovative, hands-on assignment cannot be overstated as COVID-19 has made collaborative projects rare and complicated to conduct. Students, particularly in a kinesthetic field of study, thrive in active, educational environments. This joint project has been made possible by Dr. Danny Moore, University Provost, as he provided authorization for the USB drives to be purchased.
