Welcome, Cohort 27!

Join us for Orientation & Game Jam


Two of the most transformational years of your educational experience are about to begin! You're about to embark on the first steps toward your career in game development, and we are thrilled to have you join us in August for your first semester, which begins with Cohort 27 Orientation. See you there!


Friday, August 18th

Cohort 27 Orientation — 8:30am-4:30pm
Meet your faculty and staff, learn about our program during Guildhall 101, and get your technology set up. This event is mandatory for all Cohort 27 students.

Saturday, August 19th

Game Jam — 8:30am-11pm
Build games and break the ice with your new cohort! Faculty and alumni will be on site for support, and food will be provided. This will be a relaxed experience; no judging, no expectations for game outcomes... just fun!
