this. It's really dumb that we even have attendance sheets… Today, one pof the professors forgot to send it out and it took us 10 minutes AFTER class had ended to get everyone signed. So stupid… If someone doesn't go to class they'll probably fail anyway, and a quick email will give you an excused absence 100% of the time.

It's for legal reasons. The state can.. revoke their accreditation or something if not enough people attend, and they're obligated to fail any student that doesn't attend enough.

Female here. 21. Fourth year.

How come every mother fucking male I take to bed in this stinking school breaks down and starts sobbing the morning after that they want to go out and have a relationship.

This has happened way too many times.

Granted, i'm not opposed to dating, but honestly, I'm busy with schoolwork and I want to focus on that, not cultivating a 'thing'.

Every. single. time. Despite me telling them it's just a hookup. A friends with bennies. Nothing emotional, just a roll in the hay, I inevitably get that sobby, red-faced kid on my doorstep clutching flowers telling me how he wants me to stay at his parents house over the summer with him. ( This actually happened. )

So what the fuck, men? Why can't I have a good hookup, and not have this happen.

I tell em, and they don't listen.

Advice? Have you done this? Has it happened to you?

Maybe I'm just really good at picking the insecure virgins, but to my knowledge, I don't think I've popped any cherries … so what gives.

Here is hoping this year is better.

1) Acquire t-shirt cannon

3) ???

4) Profit

No but seriously, I'm glad you guys exist. I'd suggest having a condom dispenser in the student store if I didn't think for a second that it would invite the draconian administration that runs our school to try to capitalize on safe sex and negate what you're doing. I guess bathroom dispensers would be nice. A stock at the ASC, and the Dragon Lair seems like a thing real colleges would do.

Thanks for all of the suggestions, we appreciate the feedback, and please feel free to keep it coming.

We've actually discussed many of these before. We like most of them. We currently are sure we can get them inside of the Dragon's Den, but we'd prefer to get them just outside, just so you don't have to go walk in with your staff advisors and grab one. We're investigating that, as well as bathroom dispensers. There are concerns about Project Fun/Wanic kids, and their parents, so we'll have to talk with some people. We're also still working on the actual order, but we're getting more information relating to that tomorrow hopefully.

We hadn't considered the ASC, I'll be sure to bring it up as a possibility.

We probably won't put one in the store, we don't want students to have to pay for them at the school itself (But I'm not entirely sure how the bathroom dispensers would work, it's still early in investigating that.), but ultimately we have no involvement with them, or at least only as much as any other students.

We love the Condom Fairy idea, but it might not be feasible. I'll bring it up to group after we actually make the order.

T-shirt cannons are actually absurdly expensive.

But I know at least one student affairs person has looked at it and wants it desperately.


27f9b9  No.2958

>>2955

I've actually made a t-shirt cannon, and if you know what you're doing it's not too bad cost-wise. A compressor, some wide diameter piping, and cheap pneumatic parts are all you need, and the only really pricey part is the compressor, which you can still get for <50. You can do the whole thing for under $100 pretty easily.


27f9b9  No.2959

also, you could do a shitty spring loaded system much cheaper, but really pneumatics are the way to go.

also, 8chan, before any of you ask, I am fully aware of the irony in going on a mechanical engineering tangent in a thread about sex. i chose one over the other as a teenager so i'm gonna get some use out of it dammit


27f9b9  No.2961

>>2958

You know, fair enough, but they weren't really looking to build one. If you think you could make an adequate one, tell Michelle, she just might take you up on it. They just want to shoot t-shirts man, in really crazy ways,

>ITT your experience so far

Freshman here, I found this board a bit before first semester started and the hate towards BAGD convinced me to switch (initially to BSCSGD now just BSCS). My dormies are badgers and god damn everything I hear about GAT classes sounds awful and the majority of badgers I meet are useless narcissistic "idea guys" with absolutely no skill or hope for the future. If every single one dropped out I would only feel happy for their sake. Apparently even Portnow told them that their life as a "game designer" will probably be shit when he came to speak. Also really liking the CS teachers, I can't imagine only learning scripting languages and having almost no actual knowledge of computers or art. And holy shit hearing other students talk about memes is unbearable (how has this John Cena shit not gotten old yet?)

Anyways the sound design program actually looks pretty good too, taking an intro to sound class and I like it a lot.

I'd say the biggest problems with this school are definitely the BAGD program, lack of business major/minor, and reddit autists it attracts.

Yeah, the sound designers and their program are usually pretty cool (though a lot of people have trouble understanding the material ~ hence why there aren't more sound designers). Since you're RTIS you'd do well to get to know them. They end up learning a lot of technical things regarding sound as well, and having an understanding of it (even second-hand) will give you knowledge a fair amount of non-sound designers don't have.

>I didn't come here straight out of high school

Biggest fucking protip that everyone should know before enrolling. Imagine how much better the school would be if you had to be at least 21 to attend or something, holy shit.

THAT SAID…

I started DigiPen at 22, my first roommate in DigiPen housing was also 22, and a total sack of shit regardless.

He would play Assassin's Creed IV while drinking rum and wearing sunglasses (??????) at midnight.

One time he was drunk and kept playing with a knife to the point where another roommate had to seriously tell him to stop because it was freaking him out.

He spent all of his money on Kraken rum and, from what I could tell, subsisted solely on that and instant mashed potatoes.

Every night, he would get super drunk, lie on his back in bed at night with his laptop on his fat belly, and just browse the internet for hours at a time… or so I thought at first! I always slept with my back to him because the dim light of the laptop would keep me up, a little bit. I often have trouble falling asleep immediately upon lying down in bed, and I learned pretty early on that this fucking assclown would wait about five minutes after I got in bed, assume I was asleep, and begin blatantly masturbating. I'm assuming this happened about every single night, because I caught him so many damn times.

I began my second semester by waking up for the first day of our shared early class (while he slept in) by stepping into the shower, only to find it covered in pubes, because apparently he decided to shave his dick the previous night, and, presumably due to how drunk he was (or maybe just because he was such a horrible person), he left his goddamn pubes there, in the shower.

But that's not even the worst of it.

I hope you realize there's a big company called Microsoft around here. They sell a bunch of used furniture for extremely cheap. You'd buy something like that in your living room, minus the carpet and electronics, probably $150. Sure it's used, but so would be the crap inside that place.

As for 100down, who gives a shit? You can get 20 down pretty much everywhere here for like $50.

I just don't see how it's $850 and why anyone would pay that when it's not required for first years.

>>2911

I think getting a third of your degree at a CC should be some unwritten rule. Holy hell, just spend the $100/credit a community college instead of bitching and moaning nonstop here "Oh god I gotta do english/math homework! I just wanna work on game!"

Age is just whatever. I didn't come here straight out of highschool, but half the people I hang out with are. It's just they're more likely to drop out since they don't realize how expensive coming here is and that they made a huge mistake of going into [insert degree].

My friends had a horribly smelly roommate who would almost never go to school, spending all of his CS classes making ASCII art and would take his free time to ride his bike, in the rain, with his laptop on the handlebars.

That being said, I was fortunate enough to have a pretty good housing situation last year despite being fresh out of high school, although everyone was messy because apparently digipen means people forget hygiene. Towards the end we got a new roommate, who was a total anti-SJW cuck who wouldn't shut up about "poor men" and "muh anxiety"

Ok, whatever, maybe shes just having a weird day.

A few days later, spot her again with [redacted] and [redacted].

Few days after that, shes wearing [redacted] and [redacted].

I'm all for self expression, but shit like this gives us a bad name. Seriously? Walk up to an industry professional with clown makeup and [redacted] on expecting to be taken seriously?

I'm betting she won't be back next semester, in any case.

See, this is what I'm talking about – it's fine to recognize being let down by a professor, it's fine to feel like the program is tedious or insulting, but here's the thing. None of that factors into how I'm feeling about you two. It is *because* you left the program, *because* you decided to throw in the towel instead of pushing through it. Do you think the best path in life will ever be the easiest? I've had to go through so much shit over the last 8 years to get to where I am, but I know I'm a better person for having gone through with it to this point. Nothing worth doing is easy except for sex and sleep, so don't think that you've made the correct decision by leaving. . I've been in your shoes. It's why I'm at Digipen instead of a different school. Because I didn't have the balls to follow through, and I've regretted it ever since. No, you haven't ruined your lives, no, you haven't messed up… But I'm personally disappointed, not that it matters, because I know that you could have done better

But who the hell am I, ultimately? I hope you guys/gals/fishpeople have found happiness wherever you are now. Srsly.


3ea45f  No.2847

>>2845

Because we decided to throw in the towel? I respect that you feel that you're superior because you're slogging through DigiPen, but it seems to me that you're staying as a way to punish yourself for not staying at wherever your previous school is. (I knew someone while I was at DigiPen who lost a loved one and then left their first college, so if it's you, I think you're aware of who I am and we can talk with our cards on the table elsewhere)

DigiPen was pushing me to the point of hating everything I held dear before attending. No school should ever be capable of doing that. I'm personally disappointed that you'd ever consider trying to judge someone for taking a different path than yourself. You have my respect for sticking with it, but your condescension is not welcome.

>I know that you could have done better

Maybe for you 'doing better' does mean finishing a degree, but for myself, 'doing better' means for starters putting my mental well-being and physical health first. By shifting around on the spectrum from a game dev student to a hobbyist game dev and a student in a different major, I can make games I care about unfettered by GAT assignments which had become more detriment than benefit to learning design, and also get a more well-rounded education. Sure, I'm not likely to be creating the next super-successful indie game or whatever, but truth be told, I'm alright with that.


3ea45f  No.2855

>>2847

Admittedly, I'm sorry for the condescension. That was a bit harsh of me. I know DigiPen is tough - and if it pushes you into self-hatred and the hatred of what you're learning, it's not worth staying at. Obviously, I wish you were still around, but you do seem happier where you are now.

That said, if you end up acting like this clown >>2722 then I have no sympathy for you! I mean damn at least you tried, that guy can't even get passable weed.


3ea45f  No.2857

>digipen

>tough

Pick one. For some reason everyone is ignorant of time management and due to that you start having due dates being piled up which in turn stresses you out. Which also in turn if you're stupid, you sacrifice sleep to do everything. Of course I can't say the same for BFAs and it does include small caveats of some courses that demand more than 5 hours of your life for an assignment. But again, if you do it early with a few hours here and a few hours there nothing becomes complicated. Oh what if you don't understand something? Go to your professor's office hours! It ends up being a one on one session since nobody utilizes it. You can't do that if you wait til the last minute to do the assignment.

Now keep in mind, I am not saying some courses are not worth your money or time. I'm just simply saying the work isn't consuming your life if you manage your time well.
