What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first heard of SCAD, I immediately knew it was my dream school. After touring during SCAD Day, I said, "sign me up!" Attending this school was the best decision I have ever made in my life. It really was life-changing. After being there for over a year now, my opinion still hasn't changed. The teachers, the staff, and the campus buildings are truly amazing. This school was meant to be the best art school in the world, and I don't doubt that. Our president wants the best for her students and strives to produce creative professionals. I know this school will assist me in every way possible to get my dream career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Savannah College of Art and Design's (SCAD’s) motto revolves around transforming dreams into a reality through diligent work. Despite this being my first year at SCAD, I can vouch for the success of their ideology. Although it is common to overhear students complain about their heaps of homework , I believe in pushing boundaries and putting forth utmost effort to reach full potential. In all honesty, I view the rigorous workload at SCAD as nothing but a positive attribute of the college, as it ensures students are prepared to pursue a career of their dreams. SCAD’s professors work with this mindset, and care for their students enough to want them to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Many students, including myself, cherish the extra work because we are pursuing what we love! Savannah has southern charm and enriched history which caters a warm, fitting environment for SCAD and its pursuit of the arts. Just walking down Savannah’s streets with their aged, mossy trees is enough to fill me with peace and joy. This casual, everyday beauty that the students are exposed to boosts SCAD’s educational opportunities; for all kinds of projects, students do not have to research the internet for beautiful naturalistic scenes. Instead, they simply need to go outside, where they’re presented with one of the United States’ most rich and beautiful landscapes. SCAD ensures that all of its students are provided with everything state-of-the-art. From always providing the latest and greatest technology to serving high-quality meals by Bon Appetite and Starbucks, no student is left wanting more. An unexplainable creative energy spreads itself throughout SCAD’s campus; its somehow always picture-perfect environment, relaxing pool and spa area, and state of the art library (with its chairs that pull out into sleeping pads) are just a few things that come to mind when I think of daily SCAD life. However, all of these opportunities and benefits come at a cost. SCAD’s tuition is quite impractical and in fact hardly manageable for the average person. Although scholarships are diligently offered to incoming students, most of them are not enough even dent tuition. With the mindset of “if you have a dream, you can make anything happen,” I strive to find creative solutions to fight my daunting tuition. Aside from this, the only other drawback to attending SCAD is their lack of communication with parents and students. For example, finding solutions to simple questions often becomes a challenge as students/parents do not know exactly who to contact. It took me a long while to understand SCAD’s busing system as information on this subject matter was not readily or easily available. SCAD’s faculty and advisers are more than willing to help students, but it is often unclear who is supposed to be contacted for what types of questions. Despite these challenges, I feel like I am living in a dream every morning I wake up at SCAD. There are limitless ways to be involved with the community and countless opportunities to grow as an individual everyday. As a member of the SCAD bowling team, I can vouch that their athletics are just as rigorous and devoted to success as their academics. As one of the only art colleges with a highly competitive bowling team, SCAD fits my checklist like a puzzle piece. I doubt that I could possibly be growing more as an athlete and an artist anywhere else, because I am always given beyond adequate resources to enrich my skills. I cherish every second I spend at SCAD (well, maybe besides finals week) and would recommend this college to any serious artist looking to turn their talent into a career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Savannah College of Art and Design, or SCAD, while containing plenty of faults, is an overall excellent place to learn and has provided me with countless memories that will last forever. There is always plenty of wisdom to soak up from fellow students and professors alike, while also providing loads of extracurricular activities as well that enhance my learning. Through my education, I have had the opportunity to collaborate across various majors, take up exciting leadership positions, and get involved in professional opportunities that I could have only dreamed of.

I like it so far. However, it is really expensive and there are not as many class options online. Everyone I have talked to so far has been very accommodating and responds quickly. I am very excited to see what their top-notch professors have to offer in their online courses!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the Savannah College of Art and Design. It is very much an art school that is ahead of every other college in the nation. The technology and all the resources are way ahead of their time. Some of food and housing is not amazing, but everything else here is so amazing. I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. The professors are all super nice and a lot of them are active in the field they teach or at least know a lot of people who are. The networking here is priceless. SCAD alumni are everywhere in almost every industry, especially the animation industry. If you want to go to a school that will get you ahead of all your peers, SCAD is the place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SCAD isn't for everyone. SCAD is not for the for the faint of heart or the weary of soul. SCAD can make you or break you. If you're looking for an "easy" art degree, this is not the school for you. The work is hard, and there isn't much time for a social life or even sleep. The first year or two are the hardest. The core curriculum includes basic academics like college math and English as well as foundation studies like drawing and design classes (and, yes, you have to take them even if it doesn't relate to your major). Once you've entered your major requirements, though, things change. You want to impress your professors and peers. You want to create something portfolio-worthy. This is even more difficult as you will face professors who overlook your hard work and classmates who might steal your ideas. There are wonderful professors and students at SCAD, but there are a few who try to ruin it for everyone. That's when you have to decide how bad you want that degree. If you can push through and block out the bad, you'll be just fine and probably have a great experience and find a job at the end. But if you can't... You should probably pick another school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school as it should be considering how much one has to pay to attend such a school. Sometimes feels like high school all over again with the intense security at all times. Beautiful campus and facilities, faculty and staff are always very enthusiastic about what is happening on campus.
