Gaming & Simulation Major
After looking around for colleges offering a ticket into the gaming industry I settled on Penn College. Other colleges I found were way too expensive for me ($400k+) and Penn College was in my state and much more affordable ($100k). When looking around I was seeking a computer science degree, just a basic programming degree since this was before I decided to be a game designer. I was shocked to see that Penn College offered a programming & game design focused major called Gaming & Simulation. I would get hands-on practice with working in small teams to create games using Alienware computers and industry standard game engines like Unity and Unreal. Coming here was a great decision for me, small class sizes, plenty of free time for game development, great friends in the IT field, IT club events, and a healthy female population (considering how it's a tech school).
