Cogswell College Open House

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

This past Saturday March 26th, Cogswell held an open house event. The event was open to anyone who was interested in getting more information about who we are and what we do at Cogswell. We had a lot of visitors, some of which were visiting from the east coast! Everyone received a tour of the campus and watched the videos of Project X and ESAL. Each visitor had the opportunity to speak to a representative of the department of their interest, so that they could ask all the questions they had regarding the program.  Also, interviews were setup with the financial aid office and with the office of admissions. This way, the visitors each had a good understanding of what programs we offer and what are the requirements for admissions as well as any questions they had in regards of financial aid opportunities. I conducted several tours and had a lot of fun doing so. Cogswell will be having another open house on May 7th for those who are interested, you will be able to RSVP at Cogswell’s website.

October Open House At Cogswell College

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Cogswell Dragon Mural

We recently had an open house at Cogswell.  The usual suspects, i.e. admissions, met up in the morning joined by some new faces that were equally tired, yet still smiling for being around 9:00am on a Saturday.  I doled out the “welcome” cookies and coffee, making small talk with parents, all the while contributing to the growing problem of diabetes and obesity in America.  I wonder if anyone ever considered offering fresh fruit, maybe some croissants, or even granola… regardless, it appears that everything went smoothly.

I met some kids who were really excited about becoming members of the Cogswell community.  Their excitement helped me get excited for the potential new class coming into Cogswell this January.  Still, their passion came through and it reminded me of the group of kids I started with.  Now that I think about it, nearly all of these open houses stir up some sort of nostalgia for this senior.

Cogswell Alumnus Paul Yan says,
“I learned a lot from both the teachers and from the natural competitive nature of being surrounded by other hungry students. Because Cogswell is small, you get to know most of your classmates and what they are doing – which made me competitive – but it also offered opportunities to learn from other students.” Paul is a Lead Animator at Activision.
