  • Anxiety: The Game

    Growing up with anxiety, Kennesaw State junior Melissa Gilmer found it difficult to articulate what it felt like to be gripped by immense fear and stress. Speaking to others about having anxiety didn't adequately convey her daily struggle, nor did writing her experiences on paper. It wasn't until she took a course in digital media and interaction that she found a platform well suited to tell her story: a game. This past fall, she and classmate Dustin Colvin, both studying computer game design and development, used her experiences and the technical skills they acquired through the University's Department of Software Engineering and Game Development to create "Anxiety," a choose-your-own-adventure computer game designed to put players in situations that may induce anxiety for their on-screen character.  –  February 14, 2018

  • Celebrating Black History Month

    In his first novel, the award-winning "Bombingham," Kennesaw State writing professor Tony Grooms drew parallels between the moral challenges presented by the Vietnam War and the fear and terror African-Americans in Birmingham, Ala. experienced during the civil rights movement as they faced bombings, water hoses and attack dogs. In his second novel, "The Vain Conversation," scheduled for release March 1, Grooms turns once again to the well of history, this time drawing his story and characters from an unsolved case of two African-American couples lynched in 1946 by a mob of whites at Moore's Ford Bridge in Walton County, Ga.  –  February 02, 2018
