This event not only provides students with valuable professional development experience and networking opportunities, but also aligns with program objectives and fosters the soft skills needed for employment opportunities. “By presenting completed projects and engaging with the college community, students enhance their portfolios, gain recognition, and strengthen their readiness for careers in the applied arts,” shares Jim Jeffers, M.F.A., Ed.D., ϱ Professor of Graphic Design & Digital Media and Adobe Creative Campus Faculty Fellow. “The exhibition acts as a motivational milestone, instilling pride and confidence as students transition into the multifaceted digital media industry or continue their education at the bachelor’s or graduate levels.”

The versatility of the acquired skills gained through the ϱ Digital Media program enables students to thrive in various industries, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of digital media and the demand for creative and technically adept professionals. Graduates of ϱ’s digital media programs embark on diverse and successful careers, finding roles in graphic and web design, game design and development, film and animation, interactive media and audio/video production. Many go on to work for notable game development and animation companies such as Bungie Ltd., Electronic Arts, Disney Animation Studios, Sony Studios and Studio Wildcard—in addition to many digital marketing and design agencies. Students also choose entrepreneurial paths, establishing freelancing businesses, while others contribute their skills to education and training sectors.

Jeffers shares that seeing a student’s final work showcased in an exhibition is a deeply gratifying experience and a moment of fulfillment, knowing he was able to play a part in their development. “There's a profound sense of pride and accomplishment as we see the culmination of their creative and technical skills on display,” he said. “It validates the impact of the educational journey and underscores our role in guiding and facilitating their growth. “Seeing our students poised to enter the professional realm with robust portfolios and skill sets honed during their time in the program is super rewarding.”
