The Computer Animation and Game Development Program (CAGD) hosts and is involved in various events throughout the academic year. Please check this page for updates on past, present, and future events.
Chico Preview Day was held on Friday, October 19, 2013. California State University, Chico welcomed prospective students and their families to this event and APCG (among other departments and programs University-wide) hosted an open house to provide guests an opportunity to visit the campus and talk to faculty as well as current Applied Computer Graphics majors about the program.
CAGD faculty, Jeff Underwood, held a discussion about making video games and Mark Pullyblank provided a presentation and led a discussion about his involvement in the making of The Hobbit 3. Guests were able to visit with students and view student work as well as participate in the discussions and presentations.
An CAGD table was well represented by faculty, John Pozzi, in the Bell Memorial Auditorium (BMU). The table showcased student work and made available information about the program.
Preview Day was a wonderful success and we could not have done it without all of our student volunteers who made their Saturday available to speak to potential students and their families about our program. Student participation and excitement about the Program is continually important to the CAGD Program's success.
