Game boy

Peter Burroughs is designing a college experience for himself that’s like no other. An Honors College freshman in media and information studies, his talent for drawing—and his handmade suit of armor—caught the attention of a professor who tapped him to work on a game design research project. Already he’s creating video games, complete with original soundtracks. And, although it requires starting every day at 6 a.m. in the IM Circle pool, Peter won’t even consider giving up any of the activities for which he has passion—art, piano, and swimming. Game on.
