The campus is not the typical large college but rather in an office building of sorts with three levels which makes navigating and getting to class very easy. The teachers are laid back, willing to get to know you, answer questions and touch base if you have any concerns.

The work load is tense, much more than the typical college experience and will be a constant thing to remember when it comes to work but at the same time, this is preparing you for the workforce, meeting deadlines and staying motivated. You get to know everyone eventually.

The staff are dedicated and friendly - when living in the dorms you get to meet your RA's who set up weekly to monthly events and the university itself is very driven by holding events and getting everyone together.

The price of attending here is expensive, but considering the result that you get out of it, it is worth the effort.

I absolutely LOVE DigiPen. I am a freshman BFA there, and it has really become home. It is truly made for people of all ages who have a dream and are willing to go the extra mile to make it happen. You meet so many great people, and learn to spend almost all your time there. The teachers are amazing and genuinely care about your progress, the classes are truly geared toward your degree, and no body throws parties because everyone is just too busy, though we do have select special events where we can all gather and just hang out, which is amazing. The work load is definitely prominent though, and I've seen a number of people under estimate it. But, if you can get past DigiPen, you can get past ANYTHING handed to you, in your field, in the real world. Best choice of my life, so far, to come here.
I am a older (28 yo) Bachelor of Fine Art Student for Animation and Digital Art at Digipen with a little more interest in the fine arts vs. game art/production art, but I came here because I wanted a more technical education in drawing and painting both traditionally and digitally. I like that the school will make me into a jack of all trades type of artist, from which I will be able to refine as I leave school and start giving the professional artist life a go.

The school is definitely geared and accommodating to those who want to go into game design but also has an option for pursuing film projects.
The work load is pretty insane and time management is most necessary It's a little unfortunate, but most students don't produce stuff they're all that proud of for that first year but the improvement in quality and efficiency as artists because of the curriculum is very apparent.

Some of my peers are able to hold part-time jobs and attend school. I haven't found that balance yet.
