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.

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.

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

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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The curriculum is strict, but some teachers may accommodate with the student.

5 College Sophomore

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

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.

Overall Experience: It's a tough and demanding school but it suites my interests and I've made more friends than I've ever had in any other school. Only the hardworking survive here, so all the lazy people drop out fairly quickly, and there's no drug problem because the school is so demanding, student's can't afford to be out of sorts.

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.

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.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school's tuition is really high since it's a for-profit school. I suppose it can afford to be pricey since it's the best of its kind in the nation and is located in the center of the largest concentration of relevant industries in the country, but its a huge burden on students who may not get a steady job due to the industry's unpredictable nature. I'm a little displeased with how the financial aid department gives scholarships to incoming students, since there is little to no screening, and a person who doesn't deserve it (merit-wise) and will immediately lose it is just as likely to get it as a person who put in the effort to earn it.

Student Body: Small school with a bunch of people with similar interests? You bet you'll make friends for life here, especially in the BAGD program, where teamwork is something you're graded on. The school is surprisingly diverse in spite of its small size. There is a sizable LGBT community, and a good portion of the student body is a first or second generate immigrant. The only place where diversity is lacking is gender. There is roughly one girl to every twenty guys, and most of the female students are in the art department, so you don't see much of them.

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credit was a huge hassle. A single person is responsible for it, so she will occasionally miss your e-mail completely. You have to send the occasional reminder if she doesn't get back to you. The school is also very, very rigid in it's curriculum, so many credits don't transfer at all. I was lucky enough to have attended college before and had some electives I could transfer. Math, english, and physics are your best bets when it comes to transferability, but getting out of any core classes is unlikely, and getting out of an art class is unheard of. The curriculum changes every year, so if you're trying to get some credits at another, cheaper school with the intention of transferring them, you have a very high chance that the course will no longer be apart of the curriculum by the time you get in.
