Faculty office gets a facelift in 2010 Jack Design Challenge

SFA theatre instructor Jackie Rosenfeld, seated, was chosen for the 2010 Jack Design Challenge, in which students from Donna Pharris’ Human Sciences 310 class redesigned her office in the fine arts building.

A concept designed by Xiaoxi Wang, Ashley Johnson, Jonathan Hartwell, Jamie Haskins and Chelsea Arellano (pictured from left) was chosen by Rosenfeld and executed by the class in four weeks.

Projects included custom paint and shelving, original artwork, and detailed storage solutions. The project was sponsored by the Physical Plant, Student Affairs and Sherwin Williams Paint.

Beginning Monday, May 24, "SFA Today" will be distributed weekly every Monday. This change will only be temporary during the summer months. News items must be received by Friday at noon prior to the week of desired inclusion.

Who Knew?

Martial arts actor Bruce Lee was so fast that many of his scenes had to be shot in 32 frames per second (rather than the normal 24 frames per second) in order to slow down the film so viewers could see his moves.

Excerpt from "I Never Knew That!"
