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.

Academic Experience: The professors at DigiPen are fantastic. All professors have some form of industry experience and are extremely knowledgeable. It is easy to get in contact with professors and seek help outside of class, all you have to do is ask.

Academic Experience: Being a student at DigiPen in the BFA program is the most intensive experience I've ever faced. It's also the most exciting thing I've ever done, and it's so clearly been tailored to prime us for the industry. The workload is heavy, but those who complete it with awareness know what the purpose of each assignment is - the curriculum is built in cooperation with all professors who meet and determine who will teach what and when so that new subjects are introduced at the same time in all courses in ways that tie everything together. The facilities are tailored for each program's needs, and there is always ample work space and open areas, as well as quieter study areas. Job opportunities and internships are a huge point of interest for BFA students, and we are notified through various ways, (postings, emails, announcements) when new opportunities are available. Guest speakers and "company days" are frequent events to better expose students to what's out there for us.

Academic Experience: As a BFA Freshman, I haven't yet had the opportunity to take academic courses, as with electives, they are courses taken in Sophomore year when the workload has gone from a wide scope to a more detail-oriented one, which allows students to have the time to complete their Academic requirements.
