Meet Jordan Eggleston – B.S. Computational Media, Class of 2019
Hometown – Huntersville, North Carolina
Why did you choose to attend Georgia Tech?
When I got a good look at the campus for the first time, I fell in love with the environment and I wanted to explore every inch of it. Both that and the employment rates were quite appealing.
What are your plans after graduation?
I know I eventually want to have a major part in a video game development studio. I've made a couple games so far — one of which is posted on the video game development club website — that have helped me get a taste of what that life would be like working on games for a living.
Have you had work experience where you’ve been able to apply skills from your major?
I got to work at Cartoon Network Digital for a semester as an intern and that was one of my favorite experiences. I did quality assurance and games testing, and it was great to see the process that some of the games go through.
What do you enjoy doing outside of coursework?
I just started learning how to play the guitar. I also love to draw and animate when I have the time. Pixel art is fun, writing song lyrics – I just really like expressing myself in a myriad of ways.
