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!
Review Savannah College of Art & Design
If anyone is looking for the right place to study and learn about the art field, the answer is Savannah College of Art in Design. The college provides a wide variety of minors and majors that one can't simply imagine. Everything is taken in consideration and dedication for the students. In addition, the professors are experienced employers that have worked in the professional field, for instance, Disney Animated films. Each major has its own personal building and inside each one is beautifully decorated, creating an inspiring environment to whom ever walks in. Special activities and events made by the college as provided such as Career Fair (top companies interview junior, seniors) Sidewalk Arts Festival, and SCAD Fashion Show. In addition, frequent visits of companies like Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Laika, Blizzard Entertainment,etc. I wouldn't change much since they go above and beyond even for making college experience special.
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!
