Hi! Happy New Years to all those who are reading! This blog was supposed to have been released last year, but I needed more time to flesh things out a bit. Too long, Didn't Read: I’m a bit late! I digress; today we will be learning about creating a new project and the engines tools. The tools section will be split between two blogs, so keep an eye out for part 2.

It's the end of this decade coming up! We all had our ups and downs. But one thing that kept us all afloat from not starting another civil war or world war was memes!

College Cooking!

Posted on Dec 16, 2019 12:00:00 PM by Bailey Nielsen in founder's hall, in Student Life, in cooking, in Student Ambassador, in uat cafe

College is an exciting time, and for many, the first time being out of a parent’s house. While the UAT Café is a great option for food, I found myself missing key meal times. The UAT dorms at Founder’s Hall, has an alternative to the UAT café. Its very own kitchen. Cooking can be a bit terrifying if you don’t know what you are doing, and as a ‘on a budget’ college student, what can you even make? Below I've listed some of my fellow students favorite recipes along with some estimated costs of the ingredients (and usually there are leftovers which is another meal to stretch your budget)  I recommend seeing what's on sale when planning what you are going to cook.

Always Sunny in Tempe, AZ.

Posted on Dec 15, 2019 12:00:00 PM by Marcos Xochihua in Student Life, in University of Advancing Technology, in Student Ambassador, in UAT, in campus tour, in City of Tempe

Whenever I’m on shift I strive to make sure everyone is having a good day at the front desk. Some of us, Student Ambassadors do have some downy days or just are tired. I noticed that so I decided to be the goofball of the SA's.

We Are All Just a BunchOfNerds

Posted on Dec 13, 2019 12:00:00 PM by Bailey Nielsen in student clubs, in Student Ambassador, in web design, in business technology, in game jams, in startups

Who wouldn’t want to own their own business doing exactly what they want to do in life? As a Business Technology and Web Design major I sure hope to own my own business someday. While I am not quite there yet, I have gotten the chance to help someone else start theirs.

What an Andrew Tour is Like

As a student ambassador at the University of Advancing Technology, I try to make every tour a memorable experience. To give perspective I gave my first tour in a suit as to make the tour the most memorable experience for both me and the people I gave the tour too.

Being part of the UAT family

Posted on Dec 8, 2019 12:00:00 PM by Andrew Maddox in Student Life, in Student Ambassador, in UAT, in new students, in geek 411

Some things that might not be evident from an outside view are that at UAT if you are truly searching for a family you will find one. We all come from different walks of life and it can be intimidating. I personally come from a tech background but I am not 100% into all the exact same things as some of the primary demographic. For instance, I am not super well versed in popular culture which is something I have come to learn many students have knowledge about.

IT’S HAMMER TIME:Using Valve’s Hammer To Create Portal 2 Maps - Part 2

Welcome back to another entry within this series. Let’s just jump right into it. As with any form of game development, we would need documentation to keep track of concepts, current work in progress, what is needed, etc. At the moment, you already created a piece of documentation - the papermap. This will help you envision your project and give you a reference for how you want your map to look like in the end. However, we need more. Now, we have to create the design document: This document is one of the most important things that you would have for your map. It outlines the theme of the map, the assets that the map will use, and an idea on how the map will be completed. Due to the flexibility of the design document and the project at hand, you can say that you can not fully complete a design document. However, to get a document that is useful for development, you should flesh out the following pieces of it.
