So far, I've loved this school! Everyone is really friendly and since the class sizes are small, usually between 10 to 15 students, the teachers can really help you after class or even through e-mail. There's a lot of clubs ranging from a simple Anime Club to a serious Game Development Club.

My overall experience is okay so far. I'm still a freshman at the moment so my experience is kinda limited but from what I've experienced some teachers are good and some are bad, but that applies to every school. It's a pretty small campus so it's pretty easy to get some good feedback from the teachers. If I still had a choice, I would prob pick this school again, but not right away. I started at a community college originally and transferred over. Not too many of my courses got transferred over so I was planning on go back to my old school while staying part time at cogswell. I wish they told me that I'm only allowed to transfer 12 more units after transferring over to this school. It's not really worth paying $2000 for a gen ed class at cogswell when you can do it at a community college for $150. I'm at cogswell for the courses they offer for my major, not gen ed.

The professors here at Cogswell are very nice, and so are the students. Everyone at this school seem to get along great, so making friends here won't be a problem. It doesn't matter if you're a chatty cathy or if you're as quiet as a church mouse you'll definitely find some great friends here.
