Alumni Spotlight: Video game designer and animator Babak Saadat
Posted September 10, 2021
California College of the Arts

Before CCA launched the BFA in Game Arts in fall 2021, Babak Saadat followed his passions and created his own focus in game design.


One of Babak Saadat’s (BFA Animation 2021) childhood dreams was to design games, but when he came to CCA, he initially focused on TV and movie animation. Through one of his professors, he discovered a few game electives and carved out his own dedicated focus in game design. The culmination of that work was Saadat’s senior thesis project, Harukaze, an RPG-style video game set in war-ravaged Japan that he’s continuing to develop after his graduation in 2021.

Rochester University sets enrollment record for fall semester
Posted September 29, 2020
Rochester University

Rochester University achieved a record enrollment in fall 2020 despite the challenges of a pandemic and predictions of a national decrease in college enrollment. 

Initial statistics show an enrollment increase of 13% compared to the previous fall, and for the first time in the institution’s history, RU’s overall student headcount was more than 1,200, which includes traditional, accelerated and early college students, President Brian Stogner said.

Stogner said. “I am thankful to the entire RU campus community for its hard work in ensuring a quality educational environment in the midst of these uncertain times.”

Samuels attributed part of RU’s enrollment success to the RU Pledge Loan Repayment Assistance Program, which helps graduates, beginning with freshmen in the fall 2020 class, to repay student loans.
