5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Academics offered here at DigiPen include the Computer Science program, both science and art, Fine Arts and Animation, Music and Sound Design, and the Engineering program. Video Games is mostly associated with this school. As enrolled in the Fine Arts program, I get to meet Disney animators, renowned artists in figure drawing, painting, history, and anatomy. I'm sure I will get to meet more as I continue my career here. I already met the Photoshop and Maya 3D professors this summer, so who knows what other amazing professors I will meet this year. All of them are kind and they want to help their students get into the industry.

Academic Experience: This is the school for me. Heavily focused in what I want to study and helps you find jobs after graduation. The workload for my program is more heavier than the other programs, so some students couldn't keep up and had to drop out. The curriculum can be customized to your liking, but most students choose the easy option, which is a pre-made schedule. The faculty is very friendly and accommodating to the student's needs. Recently, art students needed more space to work and the faculty ordered the construction of a third floor. There's plenty of internships posted in the hallways, such as Playstation, Microsoft, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Designers are considered the jack-of-all trades here. We are expected to be the liaisons between artists and programmers, and are often designated to leadership positions. We take classes that range from art, to programming, to traditional game design, to team-based semester long digital game projects. Our employability isn't as great as programmers since we fit a niche role that can usually be filled by a single person, but we can still fall back on our experience to be producers.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors range from great to okay. All are experienced in the industry, so they are all a great resource in that respect. The core class teachers are usually the best and the elective teachers are more likely to be a little lacking, if only because it's difficult for them to make their classes seem relevant to students. I only had one teacher I was dissatisfied with, but to be fair, she was assigned to teach a class that didn't need a lecture component.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The BSCSGD program at DigiPen Institute of Technology is extremely challenging but also very rewarding. The amount of knowledge you gather within the first year alone is incredible. Probably the most useful part of my experience here at DigiPen is the experience working on a project team. This experience is useful no mater where you go after your education.
