Visit to Lyndon State College

On Friday the CAWD2 students took a trip up to Lyndon State College to check out their programs in Animation & Illustration, Digital Media, and Graphic Design. We were able to meet with the faculty, see samples of student work, and talk to students in the program. It was a nice way to get to see what Lyndon is about, and the options they give our students for life after high school.

We found out that students can do a portfolio review once accepted where their CAWD work can potentially get them out of classes at Lyndon. You get the college credit, but you don’t need to pay, or take the classes if you can demonstrate you already have the knowledge. Seems good to me.

We had lunch with the students / faculty, and all agreed that the french fries were pretty much amazing. The fish sticks….big disappointment.

We also got to see Markus (CAWD ’08) Alex’s brother, randomly in the cafe. The head of the Digital Media program said that “Just last week Markus had done work which blew him away“. So yeah, Markus appears to be doing pretty well. For those that don’t know Markus, he is the one giving the hug to Brian…or here.

….Brian doesn’t look too thrilled……

So yeah….

    Yeah guys its so awesome there! The skills that i saw… wow! They really know what they are doing. Markus said he loves it there and the work is so interesting. I guess he’s getting swamped with work though. Any way word of advise to first years you absolutely have to check it out!
