Janelle Knight, IMGD BA '22
Being a concept artist, I thought I would have a harder time improving my skill and meeting people in the industry. But IMGD really pushes for students to do projects and work together and with professors to make cool stuff.

I've only been at WPI for a few months, but everyone's been so welcoming and supportive. Shout out to our professors for finding a way to make that happen in 2020!

The IMGD program has some of the hardest working and most passionate students and faculty at WPI. The community really works hard to uplift everyone and make sure that people have the knowledge and resources they need to succeed.
