| If you visit an expensive restaurant, you expect GREAT service, GREAT food, and a GREAT atmosphere. If not, you are being ripped off. Right?|
SCAD is just that. A lot of money invested in public relations, marketing, advertising, recruiting - but that college itself and the quality of education is not of consistent quality.
One fine example of this sub-par service is how poor the facilities were maintained. I could be picky and say there is some littler outside the buildings and the toilets getting clogged. But when I visited the architecture building to use the computer lab and found food garbage on the floor, computers with dirty screens, sticky tables that hadn't been wiped down in months, and a noticeably dirty carpet...
That's when sh*t hit the fan. HOW in the world am I paying such a high tuition for this level of service??? I can clearly remember my PUBLIC elementary school having cleaner facilities than this. Why isn't maintenance a priority for SCAD? And why do people that attend SCAD have such low-standards. I, for one, demand a better experience for the mount of money the school is asking me to pay.
I can't speak for every building, as I'm sure some are more desirable than others. But from my experience as an Industrial Design major, my building was NOTHING to brag about. It is located far from the historic district (i.e., the ghetto), and the building itself has very few windows (thus little natural light going in), and, to add injury to insult, there is NOWHERE to relax, think, or socialize outside. Except for a small bench shoved in a corner which where all the smokers go. It is an oppressive environment to say the least. I DON'T RECOMMEND SCAD FOR INDUSTRIAL DESIGN.On a positive note: there were some excellent professors, the bus system is helpful and reasonably reliable, the food is usually a hit, sometimes a miss (depends how picky you are), and the city of Savannah is great if you love walking. It is NOT a bad school, but for the money they ask for and the way they brag about their school, I expected a much richer experience.

| With out a doubt, going to SCAD was the worst decision I've ever made. I've never felt prioritized as a student and everything the administration does is for SCAD's own benefit. After getting an incredible internship (with out SCAD's help), the school nearly cost me the whole thing but not providing insurance. I was treated rudely through out the entire process as well. As far as film/television goes, they really don't have many industry connections and their idea of 'job opportunities' are local videography jobs or school-based programs. You'll learn more just by getting out in the industry than going to this school for film/television. Don't go, at least for this major. |
