Students at GVU

GVU offers a learning experience like no other, and we attract the best and the brightest. Our students are the future of innovation and their accomplishments reflect the overall quality and commitment of the talent here. We’re proud to be a part of their journey.

We are committed to developing our students as scholars, and offer many programs outside the classroom to encourage this, including the Foley Scholarship program.

In addition, we are also invested in integrating our students into the social fabric of the GVU community through social and networking events including:

GVU Ice Cream Social – Held annually at the beginning of the school year, the welcome reception is an opportunity to welcome and introduce new graduate and undergraduate students and faculty to the GVU Center. Returning students and faculty are also invited to meet and greet and discuss their summer activities.

GVU Brown Bags – Weekly Lunch Lectures featuring guest speakers on a variety of topics of particular interest to the GVU community.

Interactivity@GT Student Showcase – Interactivity is a yearly exhibition of projects by graduate students in Human-Computer Interaction and Digital Media programs for the benefit of industry representatives. Organized by the GVU, Interactivity is meant to showcase the technical, creative, and organizational talents of students with live demonstrations and interviews with project leaders.

CHI Preview Talks – Previews of research papers to be presented at CHI, the premier annual conference for ACM’s Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction.

CHI and SIGGRAPH Receptions – Two annual events to meet and greet fellow GVU students, faculty, alumni and friends attending and participating in these major computing conferences.

DVFX Screening – CS 4480 students present final productions of short videos containing technical special effects generated during the course. Students work on all aspects of production– story-boarding, camera work, special effects, sound and video editing. They also produce a "making-of" to explain their production.

GVU Showcases – Demonstrations to industry, academic, and media visitors highlighting GVU's latest research developments.
