Virtual Reality Club at UIUC
VR Club, just launched in Fall 2019, proved to be a great success. We hosted general meetings every week where we talk about the news in the field as well as open hours where students are free to play and explore VR. We built up a BeatSaber competitive team, and members are practicing every week getting ready to compete in the CVRE league against other universities in the spring.
The VR development course-VR drift the club is running also received positive feedbacks from the students and recognition from VR at Illinois, receiving a $800 grant from the committee and helping one student securing an AR Dev internship at Brunswick. We are also selected to participate in the train jam event where game developers spent 52 hours on a train from Chicago to California to development a game and showcase at GDC.
It has been an amazing year, and we are extremely excited for all the cool events coming up in 2020 (including establishing another outreach team!). We always welcome new members to join, and if you have any questions, please contact us on facebook.com/vrclubatuiuc or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
