Due to the pandemic the school had to convert everyone to online learning and wow! They were ready and equipped. The professors were so helpful and willing to assist students with online learning. At the start of each week they would remind us about what was due for the week and deadlines as it took some getting use to the eLearning platform. I appreciated the discussions, the extra help sessions and the office hour sessions as it really made a difference with assignments. They even had fit classes online and online sessions for careers and special guests from leading industries to give presentations so you still felt like you were getting industry tips of the trade. I also had people from different departments reach out to me by email to ensure that if I had any concerns or questions that needed their assistance they could help me.

I really liked the classes when going to SCAD, the teachers have their full focus on helping you succeed and making it fun and enjoyable that's the best part about scad. As well as activities and special events that were organized were fun and eventful and gave you opportunities to make friends. The dorms however weren't the best, I lived in a one dorm room with 2 other girls when the room is designed for two people. The food was TERRIBLE! Every week someone would get food poisoning, the food was not to be trusted. The chicken had looked like it shouldn't be served but the workers couldn't care less, the food never changed and for the price I'm paying I should be getting decent meals and not having to only eat pizza so I know I won't get food poisoning. But I mostly enjoy the classes and that's the main reason I love SCAD, the teacher are quirky and make the experience fun for you and the projects make you go into imagination.
So far, my overall experience with SCAD has been absolutely enjoyable! While studying here, I have been grateful for the opportunities the school has opened up for me as an artist. Each and every day, I see myself growing and improving my work along with making connections and finding memorable companions. Choosing to attend Savannah College of Art and Design has honestly been one of the best decisions I have ever made!
