The Digital Media program’s graduating class held their spring Senior Showcase on May 5th at the D.P. Culp Student Center. The event, which is organized entirely by the undergraduates, provided an opportunity for the graduating students to showcase their work and personal projects to friends, family, professors, and peers.
The students’ concentrations varied from concept art to technical direction, and the marketing materials and interactive pieces for the event were all created by the graduating class. The program is known for its exceptional modeling skills and had various 3D printed statues as table centerpieces.
“Getting to meet all the parents of the outstanding students was an amazing experience. Seeing the work displayed in a professional manner assures us that the graduates of our program comprehend the skills taught, and can apply it to any digital media field they choose.”Tod Emma, Chairperson
