The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Ben Johnson spent his formative years by the frozen lakes of Northen Minnesota, where bitter temperatures and rabid moose kept him indoors learning BASIC, and being a "theatre guy." He attended a small liberal arts school, North Central College, in Naperville, Illinois, earning a B.S. in Computer Science and Japanese, with minors in Math and The History of Ideas. While an undergrad, he crossed the ocean to be a student in and of Japan, ran North Central's arts magazine, wrote regularly for its much-needed humor magazine, and convinced school officials to let him design a pencil-and-paper roleplaying game as an honors' thesis. Ben loves electronic music, scratch, good gaming, and good curry.
