Do you know that Penn State offers a minor in Game Development? It works nicely with your major:
The requirement for the minor is 6 courses (18 credits), where 4 of the courses could also count towards either your General Education requirements, or your Technical Electives / Supporting and Related Areas courses.
Consider a GAME course when selecting your General Education (GS/GH/GA) courses!
Starting Fall 2018, there will be priority spots reserved for students pursuing the Game Development minor in GAME 140 (GS), GAME 160 (GH, US, IL), GAME 220 (GA), and GAME 250 (GQ). You may declare a minor at any time on LionPath after you have attained third-semester classification or declared your major. Procedure: https://tutorials.lionpath.psu.edu/public/UpdateAcademics/
For questions, talk to Dr. Richard Zhao (Burke 154, richardzhao @ psu.edu )

This year’s Fall HackPSU will be on November 4th! I highly recommend that all Behrend CSSE students attend as it is not only a ton of fun, but also a great opportunity for learning, gaining resume-worthy experience, and networking with companies like IBM, GM, and Capital One. Behrend students continuously take home prizes from HackPSU, and we hope this year will be no different.
The school is hoping to secure a bus to University Park, so please fill out the following survey if you have any interest in attending. If there is enough interest, then we may be able to get the bus. For any newcomers or team-less hackers, be sure to indicate on the survey that you want help finding a team. From those responses, we will create a shareable doc to help students find possible teammates.
For more info, and to sign up for HackPSU, visit https://hackpsu.org/. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, come visit ACM’s Hackathon Prep Session on November 2nd at 7:00 pm in Burke 201 for tips on getting started, and to see previously made hackathon projects.
