BURLINGTON, Vt. — Joshua Fournier, of West Gardiner, graduated May 14 from Champlain College with a degree in game design.

Champlain College’s 138th commencement was held at Edmunds Field in Burlington, Vermont. A total of 537 undergraduates received their associate and bachelor’s degrees during the ceremony.

Also, Fournier recently participated in the 2016 Game Studio Senior Show at the college.

Game Design, Game Art and Animation, Management of Creative Media, and Game Programming majors were all involved in creating nine different games that were presented to game industry recruiters from around the United States and Montreal. After the games were presented, recruiters had the chance to meet the seniors, try their games, and select candidates to interview the following day.

Typically, five to 10 seniors are hired in the game industry from this event.
