Game Studio Senior Show 2016

Screenshot (61)Game Studio Seniors are developing nine games, representing a variety of genres, that are selected to be showcased at the Senior Game Show on April 29, 2016, in the Alumni Auditorium.

The show is one of the College’s signature events. Game industry recruiters from all over the U.S. and Montreal attend to scout emerging talent. They meet with Career Services and EMC staff, game faculty, and College administrators at a pre-show reception. After the presentations, recruiters meet the seniors, try their games, and select candidates to interview the following day. Typically, five to ten seniors are hired from this event.

Students from these majors work side-by-side all four years of college to create original projects. The collaborative atmosphere ensures that students have learned professional social skills and the mastery of the latest game development expertise.

“Champlain College continues to be our #1 pick for hiring Game Development students,” says Chris Reese, Director of Product Development at Sony Bend.

The Senior Show and Reception will be on April 29, 2016 and onsite interviews will occur on April 30, 2016. To make reservations, contact Daphne Walker at walkerd@champlain.edu. Preview current and past student work at gamestudio.champlain.edu.
