I really love this school definitely for art and animation! I improved so much in the past year, freshman year. This school does have a large workload especially for the art portion. They have computer labs with a lot of cool features and a designated IT team for students and staff available when the campus is open. The campus is open does not close til midnight so you have plenty of time to use the campus. The only thing I was frustrated with is the buses that go on that route. They stop transit at 6 pm and some classes end until 7 pm. There are transit cars but limited to one transit center. So beware.
It's a very nerdy school full of nerd culture. While you will get to play some video games it will be very difficult academically so don't expect that to be the main way you spend your day
It's a good College and a lot of students, TA, and teachers will help you if you ask for help. The work load may be a lot at times, but it's to test you to see if this is what you want to do when you graduate.
Some of the class sizes aren't good for the material being taught. The curriculum is always changing, which is both good and bad.

If I could go back in time and offer any advice to myself, it would be to take more time selecting a school, and not be pressured into making any decision that doesn’t feel right, because that nagging doubt will follow you. Take the time to investigate schools thoroughly, ask yourself about the kind of person you are, and how that fits with the reputation of the schools you are interested in. Do some research into what your major is good for, and decide if you could actually see yourself in those careers. Undecided? Think about jobs you’d love to have and find the major that leads there. Think about your hobbies/interests, how they would help you in a working world, and see if they lead you towards a major and school. If you pick something that doesn’t fit, you CAN start over, but you probably won’t want to. It may seem like a massive pressure to make such a decision so young, but you can do anything with the proper research and knowledge, so don’t shy away just because it seems like work. Life is work, being prepared is your greatest ally.
The most educational and intensive work load out there by some of the greatest instructors I've ever had. Very difficult, very worth it.
My classmates have similar interests in gaming as I.
Personally, I consider my school's atmosphere the best part about it. There is so much passion and hard-work crammed in one building, it is astounding. For starters, each day I listen to incredible adults that have all gone though the industry; their incredibly bright minds transfer over to the students and inspire us to learn. In addition the student's at DigiPen are there because they want to learn, this certainly shows in the classroom environment. I have spent countless nights at campus with my classmates, each student pushing the other to strive and work harder.
At Digipen the teachers have first hand experience at what they teach. we as students undergo a kind of boot camp of art that teaches us how to act professional and help us be top notch artist for the trade. Digipen really stresses the fact that the animation industry wants people that can actually draw as suposed to people that can work on a computer. the foundation of being a good animator is knowing how to draw very well, thats the motto of Digipen. other schools focus on how to do computer animation.
The worst thing about the school would probably have to be tuition, since it is extremely expensive to attend. However, even with it's high tuition, it is worth it for the education, community, professionalism, and passonate educators and students the school provides.
The kind of person should be very passionate and driven. Those that attend and succeed at this school are for one very passionate about video games but also very driven to work hard.
The fact that not all our computers have the programs we need like Adobe Photoshop.
The academics are very intense. Across all programs, we tend to have larger workloads than most school. As long as you're serious about it, you can pull through. The training here is very serious.
I wish I had known what I was missing out on. I took off of school for a year feeling confused and hopeless because I was applying to colleges for a degree in Biology. I wish I hadn't tried to sweep my passion for art under the rug for so long, so I could take back that year of confusion. I would have loved to attend sooner.
It is a very nice school. clean campus, nice teachers, and you can leave a laptop unattended for 5 hours and expect to see it there when you get back.
Socially awkward nerd.
Yes, but we embrace it. I'm more of an extrovert though, but every single one of us was a "nerd" in high school be it for playing classical guitar, Warhammer, League, or watching eSports.
You shouldn't go to this school if you can't manage a heavy workload and aren't dedicated to your major.
My school creates video games. My professors come from video game companies such as Microsoft, Nintendo, and Lucasfilms.
