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.
