Tobiah Marks just completed a dual degree in Digital Arts Engineering and Software Engineering. As Tobiah recalls his involvement at Cogswell College, he remembers the start of it all: Being in high-school and attending Cogswell summer camps. Here is his story:
How many summers did you participate in camp?
Three I believe . . .
What courses did you take at Cogswell’s summer camp?
Digipen Game Design (made a game in a week) and Maya 3D Modeling.
What was it like to be part of the summer camp experience?
Great. It was a lot of fun.
What did you learn?
Basic game programming and a lot about 3D Modeling which I hadn’t done before.
Did the camp have any influence on your major in college?
Not so much influenced but it encouraged what I was already thinking I wanted to do with my life.
Did the camp influence your decision to apply to Cogswell and enroll as a student?
VERY much so. Getting to know the staff and the students of Cogswell really helped me pick this school vs. others. The people here liked what I liked and were doing what I wanted to do.
What are the advantages of going to summer camp at Cogswell?
I was able to get to know the college. Plus, I was able to do the things I thought I wanted to do and see if I really liked it – and it’s just plain fun.
