Conference by Sponsoring Event and Hosting Tours
RALEIGH, N.C., April 23, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, hosted dozens of potential students on Wednesday, April 23, as part of the 2014 East Coast Game Conference (ECGC), a gathering that is the largest of its kind on the east coast, and provides video game professionals, academics, and industry leaders with opportunities to network and collaborate on design, programming, art, and writing. The University, which also sponsored the conference, participated in the scavenger hunt portion of the event which took participants to several stops around Raleigh.
During their stop at WPU, ECGC participants specifically toured the newly renovated Simulation and Game Design (SGD) Lab, which houses many state-of-the-art technologies, including a full-scale video motion capture system, a 3-D printer, personal sketch tablets, and 3-DS animation software, among other items. The space was completed in the summer of 2013 and has become a popular attraction for potential students.
“Our SGD program, along with our other fields of study, offers curriculum that we are very proud of here at WPU,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our current and future students have access to some of the latest and greatest technology, along with experienced instructors who truly care about their success.”
“We were very excited to host participants from the ECGD here in our Simulation and Game Design Lab. Our current SGD students were more than happy to show them our great facilities, technology, and software,” said Roger Christman, Associate Professor and Department Chair at William Peace University. “It makes perfect sense with WPU being downtown that we be a partner in all of this.”
The conference, which attracted more than 1,300 people in 2013, was held at the Raleigh Convention Center. For more information on the event, click here.
