3 College Freshman

Career Services: From what I have heard, they offer good opportunities for advancing your career. Plus they have company days where really big named companies stop in and talk to the students or look for potential employees.

1 College Freshman

Academic Experience: In the BFA program you are expected not to even sleep. I took the Recommended course load and that was 21 credits my first semester. Out of the initial estimated 200 art students in this program, usually only around 15 graduate. This isn't because they aren't good artists or good students. It is simply because they are so ran dry and pushed to the point of extreme depression, suicidal thoughts and an extremely stressful life. You wake up, with maybe 3 hours of sleep, you work all day until you go home, where you work until maybe 3 in the morning to get it all done. I ultimately became one of the many to drop out. I promise you that this stress is not worth it. If you want to learn this then look up things online, study hard but don't put yourself through this stress.

College Freshman

Academic Experience: I can't offer much insight on the other programs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The library is a great place to go to if you need any gadgets, games, books, or even high quality cameras.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Some of the courses only have 1 available time slot, which can be inconvenient when I would prefer a later time for my classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The students are (for the most part) similar minded. A lot of the professors are fun to talk to, but also know a ton about their fields.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've loved my professors and courses (with the exception of 1 or 2 by my own personal preference).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From what I've heard from upperclassmen, students are basically "snatched up" as soon as they graduate.

College Freshman

Online Courses: There aren't any, as far as I am aware. So........

5 College Freshman

Student Body: Basically everyone is geeky (into games, comics, etc), and we're very diverse. Everyone who stays gets along extremely well.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: While the education I'm getting is excellent, there don't seem to be too many scholarships for the school, the cost is still really high (for the most part it's worth it), and the housing is incredibly expensive if we go through the school.

College Freshman

Career Services: I'm still a Freshman at the school. From what I've seen, however, they really support students in finding jobs after, or before, graduation.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm only a freshman, so I can't review too much of the program at this point.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: A lot of the professors are really great, as well as the courses. I've only encountered one or 2 professors that I personally didn't like too much, but that's just personal preference.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The only issue I've had with the school, is that sometimes the Wifi cuts out randomly for a short period of time.

3 College Junior

Career Services: DigiPen is a vocational school, so they do reasonably well. They arrange company days so that students can meet employees of different game studios.

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There's the Academic Support Center for tutoring, resources and guidance.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience here at this school was hard and excruciating difficult. Not because of the professors, but the curriculum. As long as you are getting the material and can apply it, you will do fine.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There's no other place I'd rather be. The student body is extremely diverse in both race and gender. Thus, we have clubs for those diversities.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school even gives out its own scholarships, but it is heavily contested.

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.
