Savannah College of Art & Design Reviews
Review Savannah College of Art & Design
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 am currently a sophomore at the Savannah College of Art and Design. So far, my experience here has been amazing! The campus here is absolutely gorgeous and it's so fun living in a new place surrounded by people from around the world. The professors have been very helpful and I have tons of resources that have already helped with my job search after college. I know that once I graduate, I will be set up for a successful career, just based on other students' success stories. I am really glad to go to a school as great as SCAD!
Housing depends on where you live. I'm a freshman and I live in Turner house annex. We have bad plumbing but every problem we've had gets fixed the next day. We also have our own pool and basically giants m guaranteed parking. We're also close to the bus lot. Turner annex is going to be for upperclassmen next year. The whole campus is spread apart so the dorms are only close to classes depending on your major and schedule so pick your housing and schedule strategically. Social atmosphere- depends on the people you choose to hang around your first couple of weeks. My next door has literally become my best friend and it's amazing the kind of people you meet at art school because everyone has a lot in common. The housing process is extremely easy. You can contact housing and they'll immediately respond next day with any issues you have with room placement. Cost wise housing is expensive and in some cases more expensive than living off campus but if you're on scholarship then choosing to live off campus will cause you to lose scholarship money. Truthfully Savannah isn't entirely safe so living on campus offers campus security and safety. I've visited other schools and seen their housing and scad provides more space. Plus no community bathroom! One bathroom per room which houses two people. Housing, overall and just like scad, is what you make of it.
