I don’t see a thread about this on Univ. of Alabama Huntsville yet. Does anyone have any insight into the Digital Animation program with a Game Design Production minor? We are in NY and D qualifies for the 100% tuition merit and will probably apply for the honors college, it looks like so much about this school is right up her alley. It seems the program is fairly new, not sure whether that’s a good thing or not. It certainly looks impressive but of course it would, they wouldn’t want you to see the downside. Are there internship opportunities, relevant study abroad etc.?
We won’t be able to visit before she applies, so any info you have is appreciated. What is the weather like, I know it’s warm, mostly, but is it super humid as well? How are the dorms? She is a nerdy, D&D player and loves gaming, math, science and ART, not a partier especially, is a shy extrovert, will she find her people? Is it a pressure cooker atmosphere or are people pretty chill? She’s a bit competitive but I personally would like to see her in a more laid back environment for her mental health. She’s not really into sororities, but then again she may surprise me, she’s kinda unpredictable that way. She’s very open to experiencing new things.
She will likely color her hair some primary or pastel color, maybe get her nose pierced or her ear cartilage and I’m pretty sure a tattoo is in her future (none of which I like, but she’ll be over 18, it’s her body, her mistakes, I’m not paying for any of it), are these things normal on this campus? You see them everywhere on the Northeast campuses we’ve visited with the exception of Marist, and I don’t know what the atmosphere is like in Huntsville. Then again, maybe if she’s the only one with those things, she won’t get them :).
