Students at the University of Wisconsin can take a mini-course in game development from Nintendo-affiliated DigiPen Institute of Technology.
DigiPen is the stuff of dreams for many Nintendo fans. Located just down the street from Nintendo of America in Redmond, Washington, Digipen Institute of Technology was the first and is still the best school for game development. A large percentage of its graduates are hired directly into the nearby studios of Nintendo Software Technology, where Wave Race: Blue Storm and 1080: Avalanche were developed.
Of course, we can't all go to DigiPen, but now students in Wisconsin will have a chance to taste the experience for themselves. DigiPen is holding a special two-week course over the winter break at University of Wisconsin - Parkside. It's open to all students of the university, but space is limited. See the attached flyer for more information. The University of Wisconsin Parkside is located south of Milwaukee and north of Chicago, so readers in those areas are encouraged to look into the viability of attending this program.
If you are interested in signing up for this course, contact Jean Goers at 262-595-2018 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
