From the SHU Archives: Siena TV
A Report from Dean Dorothy Browne, OP
to the Board of Trustees in 1962, Reads:
“With the installation of television receivers ready for use in the summer session of 1962, Siena Heights now has the facilities to receive four educational channels consisting of Midwest Program of Airborne Television channels 72 and 76, channel 56, and channel 10 from Lansing . . . The addition of a closed circuit channel will enable us to originate programs from any class-room that has the TV receptacle and from Benincasa dining hall, Archangelus lounge and Walsh Hall auditorium.
Siena Heights College has been approved as a charter member of the Midwest Program on Airborne Television Instruction, Inc., an association of schools and higher institutions. The organization known MPATI is located in the states ofIndiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.” Siena Heights was on the cutting edge, with copy machines and television!
