Cogswell College Will Relocate To New Site in San Jose
School Recently Cited as "One of the Top 50 Game Design Schools in the U.S."
Having been based in Sunnyvale, CA, since 1993, Cogswell College, a historic, 600-student educational institution offering a unique curriculum fusing Digital Art, Engineering and Entrepreneurship, will relocate to a new site in San Jose, CA, during July, 2015. The announcement was made today by Dr. Deborah Snyder, President and Chief Academic Officer, Cogswell.
Cogswell College's new address (starting September 8, 2015) is 191 Baypointe Parkway, San Jose, California, 95134.
Regarding the school's relocation into his city, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said, "I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for making the excellent choice to locate the new headquarters of Cogswell College in San Jose. San Jose is proud to be home to one of the country's top animation and video game design schools, and I wish President and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Deborah Snyder and her Administration every success in the years to come."
Said Dr. Snyder, "I am pleased to announce that the Cogswell Board of Trustees has voted to approve our new location in San Jose. We have secured a Use Permit to operate as a school from the City of San Jose, and we are very grateful to Mayor Liccardo and his staff for welcoming us into their city with open arms. Our plans to relocate took us a bit longer than we expected, but all's well that ends well. Our San Jose base will be our new home for some time to come!"
The new San Jose site represents Cogswell College's sixth campus since the school's inception in 1887. Adds Dr. Snyder, "We've been rolling down the peninsula for 128 years. We were in three different buildings in San Francisco from 1887 until 1985, at which point we moved to Cupertino. We then relocated to Sunnyvale and have been here since 1993. We're like the tech industry - it never stops moving forward and neither do we!"
Among the benefits of Cogswell's new campus location is that the school will now be situated much closer to multiple public transportation options, right down the street from the beautiful, new Levi's Stadium, and amidst such top tech companies as Cisco, Microchip, Ericsson, Samsung and Maxim.
Cogswell College plans to hold orientation at its new location on September 4, 2015. The school's Fall semester is slated to begin Tuesday, September 8. A WASC accredited, four-year institution of higher education with a specialized curriculum that emphasizes collaboration between its programs in digital arts, audio technology, game design, engineering and entrepreneurship, Cogswell College was cited by Animation Career Review in 2015 as "One of the Top 50 Private Game Design Schools and Colleges in the U.S."
