Quotes and Comments
“Younger generations expect to have multimedia in the classroom so we need software that adapts to those needs and our students are taking the initiative to make that possible. It’s a very technical process to create the video games that people know and love, but our students are some of the best in the business and their success is a reflection of the exceptional computer science program here at WVU.” –Frances Van Scoy, associate professor of computer science and electrical engineering
