DAGD STUDENTS DO INCREDIBLE WORK
The Digital Animation and Game Design program is offered in both Grand Rapids, MI and at our main campus in Big Rapids, MI. Each campus has its own advantages.
While our Grand Rapids campus is situated in an urban environment, the campus itself is a small, close-knit community. Faculty and staff will know you by name and get to know you on an individual basis. You'll have the opportunity to work closely with your instructors. You'll also be closer to the job market in Grand Rapids. And nothing beats the restaurants and entertainment available in the city!
You can also save thousands of dollars on tuition at the Grand Rapids campus. We partner with Grand Rapids Community College so you can take many of your gen eds at their tuition rate. This can save you a ton of money! Ask our advisor for details.
Our main campus can offer you a more traditional college experience. Here you'll have access to residence and dining halls, world-class facilities, more than 200 student organizations and clubs, and a large, thriving campus community. Big Rapids itself is a smaller, rural community that can offer you amazing opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
Whichever campus you decide is right for you, you'll take part in the same rigorous curriculum and have the same preparation for a career in the animation or game design industry. You can learn more about both campuses on the DAGD homepage.
