An update from René Archambault, manager of admissions and alumni affairs in The Guildhall at SMU:
Celebrating its 28th year, the Game Developers Conference (GDC) is the longest-running professionals-only game industry event. The Guildhall at SMU is exhibiting for the 10th year in a row, and we’re showcasing to 23,000 attendees what makes us #3 out of 234 game programs in the country (Princeton Review).
This show features more than 400 lectures, panels, tutorials, and round-table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game development topics. For The Guildhall, this is a great place to network with industry leaders, to help current students with employment opportunities, to recruit new students, and to reconnect with many of our more than 500 alumni.
In addition, Guildhall students will be participating in an exciting event on Thursday: the Intel University Games Showcase, hosted by Intel. At this invitation-only event, our students were asked to showcase their best projects for a chance to win a $10,000 grant from Intel. Wish our teams luck!
Please stay tuned for updates and fun facts from the show floor.
