Noah Goldblatt, study abroad director for Champlain College, sent an email out last semester to Game Studio students announcing the chance of a lifetime; to study abroad at Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland. When Ellie Peak, a Game Art major in the Division of Communication and Creative Media, saw the email, she immediately jumped on the opportunity. “I thought it sounded interesting […] so I emailed him back right away to set up a meeting just to answer some questions, not really thinking much of it at the time. However, it ended up escalating from that meeting, and here I am.” She is now enjoying her third week of classes in an entirely new country. So far, she is learning the slightly different methods of game development, new software tools, and even Scottish slang. For Peak, Scotland is the place to be.
