It is hard to think that 9 months have passed.
Champlain College in Burlington Vermont has become a premium school in the gaming field. With this comes large numbers of students that need experience and opportunities. We would like to be able to provide that. We would like to help provide a path for a sustainable career in the state of Vermont.
We set out to be as virtual as possible, and are grateful we have that ability, but we recognize the benefits of a team with an in person presence. We now have a physical space at the Vermont Center of Emerging Technologies (VCET). Our goal is to provide several paid internship positions over the next 6-12 months and a physical space we feel is required to provide the right experience. As an added benefit this space provides us with a home base that can be used for play tests, events, game jams, etc.
We are located at the VCET UVM campus which is located in Farrel Hall.
