Sourabh Prabhakar Hamigi, MS

I met some of the most amazing, talented and kind people here at EAE and I have made so many close friends. It's a bummer I can't meet you guys to say goodbye but I guess this will do. I wouldn't trade the last 2 years for anything in the world. Love ya all

Alexander Cervantes, BS

Those who journeyed with me throughout my EAE degree, you guys are amazing! I've worked and interacted with amazing artists, designers, engineers, & faculties who inspired me to be a better game designer/ artist. I wish everyone the best and success in their journey!

Alexander Lewis Kofford, MS

Alas, one-and-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable developers. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. I regret to announce - this is The End. I am going now.

Zachary Joseph-Hunter Gainer, MEAE

Thanks to each and every single one of my classmates, friends, and family who have supported me throughout my college career.

Sierra Marie Dickey, MEAE

I would like to thank my husband for his unwavering support, my parents who cheer me on, the professors who have pushed me to be ever greater, and everyone in our cohort that made this journey with me.

Junfeng She, MEAE

Victor Manuel Lopez Cienfuegos, MEAE

It has been a challenging, but rewarding road. One of the greatest blessings I have from the faculty and my peers is having acquired their drive to learn outside of classes, and never stop doing so. I am sure I'll carry this lesson for the rest of my life.

Dhaman Mehta, MEAE

This has been an amazing two years. I can't wait to go out and make great games with each and every one of you guys!

Danielle Powers, MEAE

I am beyond grateful to my mentors and peers. Their passion for the art of game development pushes me to be a better artist and person. This isn't goodbye. It's "catch you later." I look forward to the day we meet again, and I can't wait to see the new worlds we build together.

Elizabeth Marie Ivey, MEAE

I cannot believe I am graduating with my master's degree. It is very exciting but also feels very surreal. I could not have done without the support of my friends and family.

Alyssa Evensen, MEAE

Remember, things are never as bad as they seem. Honestly! Good luck and all that! - Rover At least it's not a zombie apocalypse...yet.

Rohan Patel, MEAE

This is a dream come true for me to get a master's degree in video game development. I am dedicating this to my mom. Without her by my side, this would not have been possible! A huge thanks to my classmates, professors, and my family in New Jersey and India for supporting me.

Rachel Elise Moberly, MEAE

To those who had a role in supporting my time at the University of Utah, you know who you are. I owe you a huge debt of gratitude. To Cohort 9, it is difficult to sum up all you taught and gave me. You made me a better person in every way. Thank you, thank you. I'll miss you.

Caitlin Ann Mclaughlin, MEAE

Stay cheesy c9! Thanks to my friends and family around the country for their support.

Kaltin Michael Kirby, MEAE

Thanks for everyone's support and help over these last two years. They truly have been 2 of the best of my life.

Jacob Keith Nielsen, MBA/MEAE

It's been a great three years! I had no idea what I was getting into coming to this school and doing the MBA/MEAE, but the experience has surprised me every step of the way. I've grown as a person here, and the friends I've made along the way will be part of my heart forever.

John Lewis Davies, MEAE

Thanks to all of you who helped me to get here and become who I am today. Good luck to everyone in their next steps!

It's been a wild ride, thank you so much to everyone along the way! ♥

Rewant Rakesh Verma, MEAE

Thanks to all my family, friends and faculty for being on my side during these 2 years. I am excited to graduate, but I will miss the U and all the bittersweet memories I have created along the way. You C9ers are all awesome, I wish you all the best for your future endeavors!
