The Global Game Jam is a universal event that encourages game developers across the planet to come together for 72 hours of non-stop creation. This year, the University of Denver’s chapter hosted a jam from Jan. 26-28, bringing over 50 participants to the halls of the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science building to create a total of 10 games.
The Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science hosted the school’s first DEI Affinity fair. The event hosted a total of ten organizations, all with connections to the diversity, equity, and inclusion values that the Ritchie School seeks to promote. For students and staff who were unable to attend, the affinity groups involved are always actively providing resources, community, and other opportunities to underrepresented populations at the University of Denver.
When the University of Denver goes on winter break, technological innovation doesn’t rest. At the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science, people are working in labs on projects for advancement in their fields.
With almost a thousand students at the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science, you’re not going to find two students with the exact same story. Some students came directly to the University of Denver after high school, and others took a gap year beforehand. And for some, they took time to be in the military.
