Open Alpha Spring 2021 Application
We're looking to accept 6-12 new members who will join some of our old members to form our 3rd cohort ever!
As a member of Open Alpha, you'll bring your own talent and vision to a fun game in an exciting and fast-paced development environment. And best of all, you'll join the tight-knit Open Alpha family and partake in awesome community events throughout the semester. Sound good?
What's your name?
First + Last
[Optional] This helps us follow up or get in contact for interviews or in emergencies.
Used for demographic information and school recognition forms only; all majors are welcome!
Used for demographic information and school recognition forms only; all years are welcome! (As per USC policy, we cannot accept non-USC students or USC alumni. You must be a currently enrolled student at USC.)
How did you find out about Open Alpha?
Friends? EngageSC? Facebook? Announcement in CTIN 190 or another class?
What aspect(s) of game development are you most interested in working on?
Pick up to 2. If you only want to pick 1, we’ll count it as double. Don’t feel pressured to select 'game design' just because you’ve heard Open Alpha is a "game design club" — game design is just one part of a whole development process. Also, no guarantee that the game we end up working on will have narrative at all, so PLEASE make sure you're okay with that.
If you would like, drop us link(s) to something interesting!
[Optional] Your GitHub, ArtStation, personal portfolio, LinkedIn… and/or favorite YouTube videos?
Awesome. Now a few questions to get to know you better.
This section is a chance for us to learn about you, as a person!
What's the most difficult thing you've taught yourself?
(100 words max)
Describe an experience or activity that has been impactful to your personal growth.
(150 words max)
Describe a game you think is underrated and why.
(Not more than 3 sentences, please.)
Describe either a unique interest of yours OR a class you've taken that you found interesting.
Seriously, no more than three sentences, *someone's* gotta read these. T_T
Almost done! Now for some logistical questions...
What are your confirmed/anticipated commitments for this spring semester?
Other involvements are great! We want a group of people with diverse interests. Also consider academic load if it is relevant.
Are you available on Thursdays 7 - 8:30pm PST?
That's our general meeting time. We'll still consider your application if you can't make it.
I'm in a quiz section that conflicts, so I'll only have to miss general meetings a couple times during the semester.
Have you applied to Open Alpha before?
Always nice to see a familiar face!
*Last Question* FUN FACT!!!
[Optional] About yourself.... or about hog calling?
Thanks for applying! Please read up on our FAQ on our website!
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
