DigiPen Institute of Technology

We often tell prospective students that DigiPen offers a unique college experience unlike any other they’re likely to find. It’s one thing to say it, but we’d also like the chance to show them exactly what we mean on Saturday, November 9, during Undergraduate Preview Day, at our Redmond campus. Once your students see our campus and get a feel for the knowledge and passion our faculty and community bring to their work, we think they’ll be believers.

While they’re here, students will get an insider’s look at DigiPen, including:



Degree Program Overviews



Our unique academic degree programs ensure that they’re learning the right set of skills for their future careers. They’ll hear from their future program directors about what to expect as applicants, students, and graduates.


Alumni Panel



Students can participate in a Q&A session with alumni who have lived and breathed the DigiPen student experience and learn how their time here prepared them for working in the industry.


Campus Tours



If the students really want to get a feel for DigiPen, our staff can guide them through our state-of-the-art campus, highlighting labs, student services, recreational areas, and more.


At Undergraduate Preview Day, students and families can also learn more about admissions and financial aid, tour our housing facilities, and enjoy a complimentary lunch at our Bits ‘n Bytes Café. With all our staff and faculty in one place, it’s also the perfect time for them to ask us any questions they have about the school. We hope you’ll encourage them to register for their spot at Undergraduate Preview Day now and join us, November 9!

BYU-Idaho Campus Day

I hope the school year has been wonderful thus far. 

I am the BYU-Idaho rep. for the state of Washington.  Please, feel free to share my contact information with any students who might be interested in BYU-I and let me know how I can help you as you work to prepare students for post-secondary education. 

Although I’m not able to make it out to Washington as much as I’d like to, please do not hesitate to invite me to events.  I hope to have a team of trusted alumni in the future to help me when I am unable to make a trip somewhere.

Lastly, I’d like you to know that our application is open and can be found at  It is quick and to the point.  Students will self-report their GPA and can self-report their ACT/SAT score, however, they will still need to request ACT or SAT to send us an official report.  Students will also be asked to send a transcript from their high school once admitted.  We are no longer requiring an essay.

Also, we are having a huge event on October 18th.  I know it’s a long drive for many, but it’s worth the trip for any student slightly interested in BYU-Idaho.  You and your students can find more information at; please include that link in any newsletter and/or any communications you have with students and their families.   Also, I’ve included a PDF of a flyer; please hang it where students will see it. 

I appreciate what you do!
