Welcome to the Cinema and Television Department at Lindenwood! Now that you’re here, it’s time to go out and make some films! In order to help you in the process, we’d like this page to help you find some of the resources we make available for you. We also want to make sure you have access to the important information you’ll need to navigate your way through our courses toward graduation.
- Lionmail is the primary way for the University and your professors to communicate with you. Make sure you don’t miss any important announcements about your classes or life on campus.
- Student Portal
- The LU Student Portal is your central gateway to your academic and financial records at Lindenwood. Not only will you enroll for classes each semester using the portal, but you can also login periodically to check your transcripts, schedules, and more.
- Program Planning Guides
- Lindenwood makes available checklists (commonly called “bingo sheets”) that list all of your degree requirements in a way that allows you to keep track of where you stand in your progress toward graduation. Your personal bingo sheet should correspond to the LU Catalog of the year you first enrolled.
- Many LU courses (including a number of courses in our department) use Blackboard as a way of hosting online learning materials.
- LUTV is Lindenwood’s television station, which airs 24 hours per day on Charter Cable (channel 989) and AT&T U-Verse (channel 99). It also streams constantly on the web, making it available worldwide. LUTV provides limitless opportunities for practical experience, and it provides a showcase for student work.
- The Video Equipment Center
- Students enrolled in production classes have access to a wide variety of equipment. Equipment is loaned (free of charge) for 1 day at a time, and all you need is your instructor’s permission and a student ID. The Video Equipment Center is located near the main LUTV entrance.
- Students may edit in the Video Editing Lab, located on the second floor of the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts. The lab has 25 computers loaded with Avid Media Composer and the most recent version of the Adobe Creative Suite. Although, for some courses, it is possible for students to use their own computers, the lab has the advantage of being connected to 32 terabytes of shared networked media storage.
- Butler Library
- Lindenwood’s library maintains a number of print, video, and online resources for film and media studies.
