A SUCCESSFUL VISIT TO SAS
The Interactive Media students had the opportunity to visit the highly successful company SAS! Located in Cary, NC on their campus lies a multimedia department and a graphic design department. We met with their Designers, James Rushing and Ed Harris (alumni of Living Arts College). They were gracious to give us a full tour of their studio. The students learned what type of software they use, their pipeline, and the thought process to get SAS colleagues engaged at these tradeshows. This was a fantastic tour, and the students learned many facets within SAS. Thank you so much James and Ed for a very insightful tour! A few quotes from our student’s perspective: “SAS offers great incentives for its employees and I hope to work for a company that takes such high concern for their employees.” – Beth Ann Seiberling “One of the things that I learned about SAS is the software they use to produce their products. There was also a presentation of their work they send out to tradeshows. They explained to us about deadlines, and how much time it takes to create certain products.” – Kim Townsend
