Savannah College of Art and Design Reviews
Campus is at prime location of midtown Atlanta, conveniently located close to many familiars such as Target, Whole Foods, Starbuck Reserve and more.
Piedmont park with lush beautiful greenery is close as well.
Campus is compact, clean, beautiful, and updated. Easy access from dorm Forty. Forty is an amazing dorm, looks similar to Canopy Hilton vibe, offering good security, tech, cafe and art. Would like to see better merch at campus bookstore, limited compared to Savannah's well curated, artsy stocked shop.
Our admission counselor, Jennifer was awesome. She is warm, attentive and gave us the best support / customer service compared to other colleges. Everyone is helpful and kind, SCAD's offerings are competitive and thoughtful.
The 3 stars are just my experience, it is definitely a 4 star school! Great parties, hugely diverse student body (major wise), and tons of free student resources (if you can manage your time!)
One last thing, as someone who stayed up for three days straight for my finals week, Sleep Does come After Death. Go bees!
