All Design Majors are required to participate in two internships during their time at Loyola. Our students are placed at agencies and studios near and far. Many go on to receive staff positions after graduation. Below are some of our most exciting student-company matches, both previous and current.
Survios is a leading Virtual Reality Gaming Studio located in the heart of Culver City in Los Angeles. In March 2012 Survios launched Project Holodeck as an interdisciplinary effort at the University of Southern California, bringing together a team of technical artists and engineers to tackle big challenges such as avatar embodiment, positional movement, 3DUI, and game design for VR. As their final project they developed one of the first full-motion VR games ever, called Wild Skies. Soon enough they were able to build a truly immersive VR environment that was intuitive, engaging, and super entertaining.

She worked on titles in various stages of production and was able to experience a variety of deadlines and creative processes along the way.
Antenna had its beginnings as the artist and writer collective Press Street, and so much of this history refers to Press Street during the nearly 10 years it operated as such. The organization formed in 2005 with a mission to promote art and literature in the community through events, publications and arts education. Shortly after Katrina, Press Street began producing events in small businesses that had yet to reopen, including the Saturn Bar and Preservation Hall, to promote a symbiotic relationship between small businesses, non-profits and artists in the city’s rebuilding.
