What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think while it sometimes is a little cheap in terms of money, you're still definitely getting the great education that you pay for. There will be a new housing building this fall, and in terms of the rest of the school the quality is really good considering what you pay for. The food is great, the educators are diverse in opinion and skills, and I made a lot of amazing friends from around the coountry and world. Overall I love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When going to Scad you feel a sense of excitement because your surrounded by fun and positive people. Everyone at Scad has an artistic goal that they would like to achieve, which makes it feel even more welcoming because everyone understands what the other person may be feeling through projects, class work, and exams.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SCAD is a beautiful school! Art covers every inch of this building, after all this is an art school. This school has tons of extracurricular activities, art show cases, shows, and more! There is always room for improvement though this is a fantastic school. A lot of people complain about the school lunches though I feel its very fortunate that we have a cafeteria on sight. Which includes vegetarian and vegan options which is awesome! The bathrooms are always clean which is amazing. Class rooms are a comfortable size but the chair are far from comfy. Teachers are nice, caring, and understanding of hard working students. Though it can sometimes feel like the grading can be unfair especially when it comes to grading art. Overall the teachers I’ve had this past year have been very knowledgeable and helpful for guiding me through learning. I would say the only main downside is when you call to speak to people on the phone it takes a while for them to get back to you. Savannah college of art and design may not be for some people but for the artsy crowd I would say this the school to be at!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a transfer student from a small community college, I am beyond blessed and extremely grateful for SCAD. I can express my creativity in so many ways. I have learned more ways to express myself and I have also learned so many new skills. SCAD is very hands-on learning because we are an art school. Unlike the movie typical art school, SCAD is bursting with connections and careers in fields no one would think to consider art. SCAD's main campus is located in Savannah, Georgia which is a beautiful melting pot of art and culture, where inspiration lies around every corner. Apart from the lack of on-campus housing and the ridiculously high tuition, SCAD is a dream. I have been blessed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking into a career in the arts, there is no better preparation than Savannah College of Art and Design. You receive artistic training from world-class professors and you also receive access to international companies looking to hire SCAD graduates. SCAD offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the credentials needed to be taken seriously in the art community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

TLDR: Great school for academics and general student life, subpar food services and housing facility. SCAD is a great place overall for people wanting to enter a field that involves a lot of creativity or artistic expression. While some majors are underrepresented in terms of the student population, it doesn't usually affect the quality of the professor or work provided. They bring in professionals and alumni into the university from time to time and also work to publish and sell student work for the purpose of discovery and teaching the process. The school is not for people who don't know what it is that they want and punishes people who don't want to try in class. For more technical majors, such as industrial design, I encourage people to choose SCAD since their added focus on arts will supply people with the knowledge and creativity that only an art school can provide. With that said, don't come here for the food or for the housing, from what I have experienced it isn't a 5-star experience. The food is overpriced compared to the quality and the housing is unprepared for art students due to the lack of cutting stations (there are a lot of tables that are cut up because of this).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an eLearning student, so I am 100% remote. Most of the questions on this review are about being on campus, so I can't speak to that, but I can tell you about the online environment, and I love it. Being able to keep my full time job while going to school on my own time has been essential. All the professors I've had have been wonderful, and very engaging. The online platform is called Blackboard, and it is pretty easy to use and is user friendly. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but it's art school, so it is going to be pricey anywhere you go really, and I would say it is worth it. I have only been in 2 quarters so far, and I feel I have grown so much as an artist and learned more than I could have thought I would in a short time.
