Savannah College of Art & Design Reviews
I wish that SCAD didn't suck my wallet dry not only through the tuition, but also through hidden fees on everything. That major downfall aside, I love attending SCAD! I met my best friends attending this school. The academics, while sometimes grueling, are exceptional. The professors actually care about the students and their work. The student community is welcoming and helpful. The opportunities this school provides are fantastic! Employers visit the school constantly. Overall, SCAD is a wonderful place to get your foot in the door and learn.
SCAD is a dynamic school in a beautiful and unique city. I valued my undergrad education there. It retained a small-school feel of community despite its growth during my time there (2005-2009). Make sure to take a close look at the curriculum for each selected program, and compare it to the curriculum of other schools. Some classmates felt the foundations requirements were too unrelated to their program of study. Pay attention to current rankings, as there have been some changes in recent years. Look at acceptance vs. retention rates for patterns in certain programs as well!
I'm a final quarter Senior in ITGM and I want to write a very honest review, SCAD is what you make of it. The course load is heavy and work can be grueling, many students drop out, but if you use the resources available (career advising and CLC) and stay dedicated to your work you can excel. SCAD provides great resources for networking, gaining experience, and finding opportunities. My career adviser played a huge part in landing an internship on a AAA title. A downside is obviously the cost, it is a for-profit school. There are articles on how much the president makes, where money goes, while I'm lucky my parents pay tuition we as a family find SCAD's choice in spending frustrating. The physical availability of computers and cintiqs and the quality of life post freshman year declines. While the freshman dorms look nice with many amenities once parting them administration forgets about its upperclassmen. It's a facade for prospective students and their families.
