(February 19, 2013)

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cogswell College (http://www.cogswell.edu/), is holding an Open House (http://www.cogswell.edu/prospective/rsvp-open-house.php) on Saturday, February 23, 2013, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at its Sunnyvale campus. Cogswell College is one of the world's leading regionally-accredited institutions offering a unique curriculum that fuses digital arts, engineering and entrepreneurship.



After visiting the school's campus, a San Jose Mercury News reporter wrote, "Spending a few hours at Cogswell convinced me that this unheralded college just might be the most creatively geeky corner of Silicon Valley."



The Open House will provide an opportunity to tour Cogswell's dynamic campus and learn more about its animation, game design, audio production, game audio, digital arts engineering, software engineering and entrepreneurship & innovation bachelor degree programs. Attendees will be able to visit with students, watch award-winning computer-animated short films, talk to an admissions representative and get answers to financial aid questions.


The Open House will be accompanied by a performance of the newly-formed campus rock band, Dragonhearts. The band – a collection of ten Cogswell students and their instructor – will combine their assorted musical talents to jam out with an eclectic mix of rock, blues and funk music beginning at 10:30AM.




Campus tours run from 10:00 to 11:00AM. Visitors can watch award-winning, student-created short animations following the tours at 11:00AM.
