Media coverage of Syracuse's Global Game Jam

We finished our Global Game Jam and 4 games were made.   One thing that was exciting was the diversity of the 21 attendees.  We had students at all levels from undergrad to PhD along with faculty and staff. They came from Newhouse, VPA, iSchool,  English, Arts and Sciences, and Architechture.  Then there were people from the SU library, SUNY-ESF, OCC, Cornell, and 5 non-affiliated community members!  

Here are some articles and video about the event.
