During the Fall of 2016, much of my time outside of the classroom or the rehearsal space was spent writing a grant proposal for the Student Tech Fee Grant at LSU. Toward the end of the semester, the committee had made its decision and my grant was funded!

Since then, I have been working to get new equipment in and get spaces set up. It is a bit of a process and is taking a while, but we are getting there.

One of the things I am extremely excited about is our sound studio upgrade, which was made possible by both the Tech Fee Grant as well as matching funds provided by the School of Theatre. I have been working diligently all semester to get it up and running, and we have held our first recording sessions in there this week.

While I am still waiting for a few elements to come into place, I figured I would post some “before” pictures, though they are really “in process” pictures, as I had already gotten most of the old stuff out of the room before taking these pictures. That said, these pictures demonstrate the magnitude of the overhaul. “After” pictures will come soon, and I can’t wait to share them!
