DigiPen is a school you need to be ready for. It offers alluring courses that describe ideal opportunities and careers that you may find fascinating, but it does not sugar coat the four years it will take you to get there. It is a grueling, difficult course sequence to get through, and they make that very clear. As a currently enrolled student, allow me to amplify that message: To get through any of the degree programs at DigiPen, you need to really know what you're getting into and be determined to get through it. This is not a cheap school. If you have second thoughts, spend your money exploring elsewhere. But, if DigiPen offers exactly what you are after and you are ready for a brutal first few years, there is no better school out there.
Review DigiPen Institute of Technology
Most classes are geared toward your actual majors, however when you first start there's a lot of general studies to get through your first year. Things get more specialized the longer you stay. Faculty is nice, and all of them have worked in the industry in some way shape or form, so everyone knows what they're talking about! (Mostly)
DigiPen is a college unlike any other, as it seems like a school that could only exist in your dreams; it's a school that primarily deals with video game development. With my, admittingly short, experience with the school, I already know that the school provides a dedicated and experienced staff that are available to help a student strive for success in whatever degree program they've chosen. The curriculum is challenging, but it sets a realistic standard that pushes students to reach their full potential and push the boundries of their comfort zone. Furthermore, it has up-to-date and comprehensive labs for students to collaborate with their own teams or other teams to work on game projects, as the degree programs are mostly team-based and stress the importance of team-bassd skills. I'm certain I will be enjoying my time at DigiPen, and if I find out I'm wrong, I'll still stick with it because I know even then that it will be preparing me for the industry; plus they serve delicious wood-stone oven pizza!
