Since it’s not always possible for applicants to visit DigiPen, we offer a number of opportunities for you to learn about our school without traveling far from home. By requesting information online, we can send you email notifications for any upcoming events we’ll be attending in your area.

College Fairs and School Visits

Our representatives travel all across the country attending college fairs and visiting high schools. To see if we are traveling to a city near you, please see our traveling schedule below. Also, if you would like to have one of our representatives visit your school or classroom, just let us know and we will be happy to arrange a visit if we are going to be in your area. To request a visit to your school, please email outreach[at]digipen[dot]edu or call (425) 629-5001.

Receptions

Throughout the year, our representatives host receptions in several cities across the country. At these receptions, we provide information covering DigiPen’s history, degree programs, student life, and industry connections. We also answer any questions you have about the DigiPen admissions process. To register for one of our upcoming receptions, please email outreach[at]digipen[dot]edu or call (425) 629-5001.

Industry Events

From PAX to SIGGRAPH to the Game Developers Conference, our faculty and outreach representatives participate in a number of major industry events each year. If you’re attending an event and happen to see a DigiPen booth, please come by and say hello — we’d love to meet you!
