FifoCon Day of Discovery

October 17, 2017

Louisiana State University

LSU's DMAE is featured in Country Roads Magazine. The Digital Media Arts & Engineering program will take part to connect with potential students and the greater Baton Rouge community. Come join us and many others to find out what exciting times we are in store for in our field of study and practice.

Today, with more than a dozen independent game companies thriving in Louisiana, and nearly as many higher education programs devoted to teaching the skills needed for careers in video game design, digital effects, and other creative STEM fields, this aspiration is more attainable than ever. Louisiana’s newest convention, FifoCon, provides the perfect platform for those driven to pursue careers in video game development and beyond to link up with the many companies and educational programs already thriving throughout the state. In order to help as many interested students as possible attend this “Day of Discovery”, FifoCon founder Andre Chapoy has reached out to high schools throughout the state to invite them to attend free of cost.
