WHAT I LIKED

Your professors have real life experience in these creative industries. They are encouraging, supportive and really treat you more like a friend than a student. They are easily approachable. The dorms are like no other. Great quality and pretty new. Being a Fashion major I was definitely nervous about competing against others. You definitely have to have that competetive edge but your classmates are freindly and willing to help out as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Dining hall food is bad.

WHAT I LIKED

The city of Savannah is incredibly beautiful and full of inspiration to be creative, so it is a great spot for this art school to be in. You make a lot of connections with your peers, professors, and even industry professionals.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school is kinda expensive. You are not getting your worth out of the ridiculous tuition amount that you pay to be here.

WHAT I LIKED

I've only just visited it for the upcoming semester when I start though I have researched it heavily. However, after having toured it, met the professors, and seeing how much money they invest in the equipment and educational opportunities for their students I can understand why. Everything so far about this place is perfectly designed for the creative mind. From the old buildings and architecture to the design and layouts of each building. I didn't see the dorms so don't take my word for it but the students I met say they love them. Everyone there is very helpful so far and I can't wait to dive in and take advantage of every opportunity they offer. That's a lot, so I assume I'm going to be very busy.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The cost and the difficulty I have had contacting my finance advisors for assistance. Other than that, everything has been great!

WHAT I LIKED

My favorite and consistent thing that I notice about SCAD is the multiple offers to do sit-ins where specific topics can be discussed such as: how someone achieved success/where they came from, how to manage and network to the best of your ability, how to develop a proper portfolio for your goals, etc. SCAD overall has a lot of prominent guest speakers and networking opportunities so the industry access is very direct and frequent for students if they choose to apply themselves and become part of the communities they choose.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As a fully online student, SCAD is completely doable, but do what best fits your budget and your setup. As I’m always told and understand, SCAD offers major benefits being on-campus/near campus as studios can be rented out from what I understand for major products. The relationships built across screens, although not the same as physical, I feel as though still have the same value to play and both should and can be experienced by the students.

WHAT I LIKED

Most professors I have come across will tailor their teaching strategies to best teach their students. They understand students learn and absorb information differently and will work with students directly to better their learning experience at SCAD. The professors want students to succeed and go further than the bare minimum.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The cost! Although it is the most obvious frustration with this school, it is a big one.

WHAT I LIKED

This is my dream school, and I'm still happy I go here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Make sure you always double-check your homework before submitting it, and sometimes you won't get the ideal roommate you want.
