What does it look like to be a student at DigiPen? It could be many things.

Eating lunch with your friends in the Bytes Cafe & Lounge while you discuss and debate your favorite anime shows. Burning the midnight oil as you joke and collaborate with your student game team in the Edison production lab. Enjoying some snazzy live tunes, courtesy of the DigiPen Jazz group. Meeting up with your Student Success Advisor to plan out your course schedule for next year. Going to student club meetups — learning the mechanics of a fantasy adventure game in RPG Club one night, then gathering to discuss LGBTQ+ issues at PRISM the next.

Your student experience at DigiPen is what you make of it — a time to build your knowledge, explore new interests, gain new leadership skills, and forge lifelong friendships. It’s a chance to surround yourself with awesome, creative people who share a similar passion for video games, art, music, technology, and so much more.

Above all, DigiPen is a place to be you.
