Global Game Jam 2017
Mt Sierra College was a host for the Global Game Jam event once again. Seven teams gathered to make their own game with the theme of waves applied. Within a 48-hour period each team creating amazing and creative games. Thank you to Max’s Cuisine, Wendy’s, Monrovia Pizza Co., and Sierra Madre Catering for feeding our hard working jammers. Thank you to Top Designs for printing our shirts.
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
Change of Ownership
Dear all members of Mt Sierra College community, as you are probably aware already, Hengda Education USA has acquired the ownership of Mt Sierra College from Wellsland Company in January 2017. The campus has been requesting approvals from several agencies and should complete the lengthy transition soon. The College’s academic programs, accreditation, policies, and standards will not be impacted by the ownership transition. If you have any question or concerns, you can contact the president of the College, Dr. Eric Tao, directly at email@example.com. Mt Sierra College will continue our outstanding education and our proud tradition of providing the best learning experience, one student at a time.
