Videogame Day Returns to Penn State DuBois
DuBois - The Penn State DuBois Information Sciences and Technology (IST) Department and the Information Technology Club will hold their fall Videogame Day in November. The event is open to anyone interested in playing computer games, and offers participants the opportunity to try the latest games and game systems available.
Dell will supply Alienware computers, which will be open to all participants. Two tournaments are planned, featuring Halo: Reach and Medal of Honor.
"The biggest reason we do this is to offer a fun, safe environment for students and gamers of all ages to get together and play some videogames and enjoy themselves," said event organizer and IST program leader Jason Long. He noted that Videogame Day is held twice each year, once in the spring, and once in the fall. Last Fall’s Videogame day brought in 156 gamers.
Videogame day is planned for 4:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 13, in the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. A $5.00 admission fee covers all gaming, pizza, snacks, and a drink for each participant. Online registrations are required. Log onto www.istlab.net to register.
