Welcome to the NCAT, St. Lawrence University’s state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary arts technology facility. Located in the Noble Center, the NCAT exists for two reasons: it meets the technological needs of the arts departments in teaching and learning; and it serves as a hub for collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts — both within the arts and across campus. The NCAT staff works with faculty members to coordinate the necessary facilities, equipment, and training to explore the intersections among digital technologies and the arts.

changes in the ncat

August 15th, 2014 | Jo

The Newell Center for Arts Technology saw its biggest equipment upgrade to date over the summer. We have replaced all of our older computers with new iMacs and Mac Pros, with larger displays for more screen real estate. HP scanners, Wacom pen tablets, and new Nektar MIDI controllers round out the workstations. The NCAT supports a wide variety of creative software for art, video, audio, and music notation. Even if you are not taking a class that meets in the NCAT, you are invited to come in and work during our open hours in the evenings. Hours are posted here (see link at left).
