Career Success

From the inspiring, collaborative space of the Champlain College Game Studio, graduates have gone to work for companies like Nintendo, Epic Games, Insomniac, Activision/Vicarious Visions, RockStar Games, and more. 

The Game Development Senior Show and Job Recruitment

At the end of the school year, Champlain hosts the Game Development Senior Show. This two-day event features a presentation night for all graduating seniors to present their projects to the community, including invited family, friends, and special guests. 

The presentations are followed by an exhibition and reception. Recruiters from major and indie studios are invited to attend, followed by recruitment interviews on the second day of the event where our students have the chance to talk about post-graduation opportunities.
