What made you choose the Game Programming major?
I chose my major because I love taking an incredibly complicated subject and packing it into something everyone can interact with and get joy from. Whenever I create something, my goal is that my mom should be able to turn it on and understand how to operate it.
What is the best part about your program?
I love that Game Programming is a project-based major. One of my favorite series of classes is our Production track courses. These classes take groups of every game major and put us together to make games and share them with our friends, professors, and industry recruiters. We're a close-knit community. Spending so much time in the labs makes you feel so comfortable and helps you make great friends with similar interests.
Can you tell us about your internship?
I worked on R&D projects with a team of interns at Rad Magpie. Our goal was to find possible long-term games and projects for the studio to continue developing. This pushed us into looking at virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. My Production classes made it easy to go from a classroom environment to working in a business where there were multiple projects going on. Having an internship gives you so many great opportunities to create new connections and network with people who you would have never had the chance to meet otherwise.
