ASB Apparel

The holidays are just around the corner and Cogswell ASB is hot at work getting designs put together for new winter apparel. There is no word yet on what these awesome articles of clothing will look like but you can bet that ASB won’t let us down. Stay tuned for updates!


Finals almost over for Cogswell students!

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

The LAST week of the semester is officially halfway over!  Cogswell students are pushing through, I for one, am one of those souls. Fortunately, I finished with finals  on Wednesday, but I fell victim to whatever cold/flu bug is making its rounds days before.  It seems the most common form of Cogswell student during the last days of the semester is someone who is stressed and sick, yet still soldiering on to conquer all that finals are serving up.  There is a light at the end of the semester tunnel, a long and glorious winter break where no student has any worries or academic obligations until January.

Can you hear it?  Listen closely and you can hear the sweet sounds of victory as each Cogswell Digital Art and Animation student turns in their last sketch, illustration, 3d model, or animation final.  Cogswell Digital Audio students are completing their last sight-singing test, final mix of a song, or last moment to show their music theory prowess.  Cogswell Engineering students are writing the last algorithms to their codes and debugging the heck out of it.  Cogswell Entrepreneurship students are laying down the groundwork to begin their student ventures in the spring.  Busy bees they are, and it will all be worth it once grades are posted and those who have persevered find that they did not do it in vain.

Most classes are finished by Friday, but Saturday is the very last day of the semester and a couple of classes are going to be held, but it is definitely freedom after that.  Meanwhile, for those finished by Friday, the ASB is sponsoring a movie night!  Cogswell students will be able to see Tron: Legacy for free on Friday night!  To qualify, though, one had to put their John Hancock on the list outside of the Cogswell ASB office.


Cogswell featured in Autodesk Education Reel

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Autodesk, the company behind 3d software such as 3ds Max and Maya, has released a reel including works from various student works. Cogswell’s The Offering, made in into the compilation!  Within the first 30 seconds of the video, you see a clip from the Cogswell short where the main character is dancing.  Don’t blink or look away, the pace of the video is rather fast.  The DVD of the reel will be released by February and will be distributed to the many clients of  Autodesk.

As the semester winds down, Cogswell’s ASB had the last all student meeting yesterday to wrap up any unfinished business. Some items to take note of:  ASB will be sponsoring a free movie night to see TRON: Legacy on December 17th; Fusion Awards Submissions will be due soon after the start of the next semester; and Graduation Applications for Spring 2011 will be accepted between January 17th and February 11th.


New Students Welcomed at Cogswell College

Friday, September 3rd, 2010


On Thursday, August 26, and Friday, August 27, more than 65 new students flocked to campus to take placement tests, meet their fellow classmates, learn how to use the student online information system, what services the library offers, talk to their academic advisors and finalize their class schedule.

It wasn’t all work. At noon on Thursday, students were welcomed to campus by Dr. Chester Haskell, Cogswell’s President, and were treated to a chicken lunch catered by Boston Market. In the evening alumni – Brendon Bengtson, Colin Brown, Ray Crook and Ash Monif – shared what it’s like to work in their respective in fields of Game Development, Animation and 3D Modeling as part of a panel discussion. Dinner from Ginger Café disappeared fairly quickly. After dinner, everyone headed out for a rousing evening of laser tag at Laser Quest in Mountain View.

Friday afternoon students met with Associated Student Body officers to find out what activities and clubs the school has to offer. The day wrapped up with a BBQ Dinner and table top game night.

Cutting Loose in the Summertime

Are we having fun yet?

Are we having fun yet?

On June 28th, 17 intrepid adventurers set off for Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo. Little did they know that temperatures would climb close to the 100 degree mark. The heat made the water rides a must on everyone’s to-do list. The day of fun in the sun was topped off by visiting the animals and riding the thrill rides! 

This Associated Student Body sponsored event is one of many great activities offered to students throughout the year.

When asked what their favorite part of the day was, students answered:

“I had fun with all of my friends riding rides and seeing the white tiger.  I especially liked the ride Medusa!  I would love to go again!” – Andrew Severns

“Some of the rides weren’t working in the morning so I was happy when we finally got to ride them in the afternoon.  I also liked that ASB was able to fund most of the trip so we only had to pay $10 each!” ~ Phil Jenne, ASB President

“My favorite part of the day was feeding giraffes and going on the water ride!” – Nick Lindberg

“Riding the elephant was incredible.  That was my favorite part!”  – Tobiah Marks
