Frank Lantz's Advice to Students

Share these tips with your students, from Game Center Chair Frank Lantz!


  • Carve out a little corner in your home that is dedicated to working. Make it spartan and distraction-free. Only use it when you want to get work done.
  • Carve out a little time in your routine the same way. A time every day when you sit down and do work with no distractions. It can be as little as one hour a day, but don’t ever skimp on it.
  • Don’t just let homework and projects flow into your private space and turn your life into a blurry puddle of work / hanging out / goofing off. 
  • Take advantage of this disruption of the status quo to get in touch with your own motivations - Let’s be honest, you can probably use this crisis as an excuse to avoid work you don’t want to do, so figure out what work you DO want to do. Why are you studying game design? What do you want to learn? What do you want to do? Learn it. Do it.
