Committee Overview


Are you a gadget junkie? Do you foam at the mouth when you sit through a movie on an oversized Hi-Fi screen with 5.1 digital surround sound? Does your pulse race when you find out about the latest in audio and visual technologies?

Well, now you can put your knowledge to use by becoming a part of the A/V Acquisitions committee. Our duty is to make all audio visual decisions for the residence. We are responsible for maintaining and updating the current A/V equipment in S-P. This is also a great opportunity for anyone, experienced or not, interested in learning more about audio visual technology.
