Please Remove All Personal Items

Attention all photography students!

As you may have heard, Fall 2017 classes will not be held in Bergen Hall. We will be moving to our new building(s), Alexander Hall & Adler Hall, over the summer. This means that ALL personal items must be removed from the building at the end of Spring quarter. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please help by cleaning out your locker and removing any other items that you may be keeping in Bergen such as seamless background paper, inkjet printing paper, alternative process chemistry & supplies, etc.

Anything that is left in the building at the end of Spring quarter will be thrown away.

We are looking forward to a great Fall quarter in our new building(s)! Have a great summer!
