SMU Guildhall hosts its annual showcase of video games developed by graduating students on Friday, May 19, 2017. The 2017 Spring Exhibition honors Cohort 25 – 36 master’s degree candidates who specialize in art creation, level design, production and programming – and will take place in Building 2 of the SMU-in-Plano campus at 5232 Tennyson Parkway.
