Summer Fest and Open House!

Summer Fest, Drawing Workshop and Open House at Cogswell

Saturday, July 21, 2012
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Cogswell College is hosting an Open House on July 21 followed by our annual Summer Fest put on by the Associated Student Body. We will also offer a drawing workshop for a limited number of interested students.

During the Open House you will have an opportunity to tour Cogswell’s dynamic campus, watch student-created, award-winning short animations, meet the faculty, talk to an Admissions Representative and get answers to Financial Aid questions.

Without a doubt, Cogswell has produced something spectacular with its curriculum leading up to this year’s project which will prepare students right out of the gate for the rigors of our industry.  It’s not easy to do this stuff. – Marilyn Friedman, Head of Outreach at DreamWorks Animation.

RSVP now for the Open House!

The Open House is only the beginning. Bring your swimming suit and plan to stick around for Summer Fest beginning at 2:00! Join current Cogswell students and Fall term applicants in an afternoon of fun featuring a water slide, dunk tank, bounce house, water balloon fights and maybe a pick-up game of basketball or frisbee. A kick-off BBQ launches the day in the sun.

For those who want to hone their drawing skills, we are offering a 3 hour drawing workshop from 1:00 to 4:00. Lead by Project X alumnus, Kong Vang, you can either fine-tune your portfolio or get a jump start on the art classes you plan to take in the fall.

Finally Cogswell’s Game Development Club will roll out the consoles around 4:00 for Game Night!

For a real taste of Cogswell life, don’t miss this action-packed day!
