On March 23, 2008 SCAD freshman student Meagan Petry fell 65 feet from the fifth floor of Turner House at 302 W. Boundary Street, Savannah, Georgia. The accident occurred when the aluminum balcony railing broke away from the railing support system causing Meagan Petry to fall through the open balcony onto the grass embankment. The Turner House construction was completed in late August/early September 2001. Since the accident Meagan Petry has endured 27 operations. The D?Amato Law Firm ( is representing Meagan Petry through this civil litigation and is asking former students & employees to contact the case investigators and provide any information that may be helpful toward a fair and reasonable resolution.

I attend SCAD in Atlanta.BrightOther
I attend SCAD in Atlanta. I truly enjoy the experiences here that i have learned from so far. The classes that I am taking are all good to me and are relevant to my major. I came to SCAD with no prior drawing skill (I have my AAS in Journalism) I am NOT the best Drawer in the world but I am more confident in my skills as an artist than I was before I got to SCAD. As far as the people out here that I have gotten to know some ppl are more friendly than others, my roommate gets on my ****ing nerves. I can't wait for her to go back to the other campus. As far as getting around the city of Atlanta I find it a bit more challenging time wise but it is not the worst. Being from NYC it's just not as convenient (24 hrs) like it is back in NYC. I just miss being near my family and my friends (especially my bf that I left back home). I only have to take 6 more courses before I can start taking my major courses. I passed all three of my courses last quarter but bc my Art history class was so frustrating thanks to PROFESSOR LEADER (do not take her course unless you want to get a C) because you will not retain any of the information because she will try and overload you with too much work, her class was boring the only exciting thing about her is that she looks like Tina Fay. I am looking forward to the skills I will hone and see where that will take me in the Fashion world. Yes it is expensive to go to SCAD. But if you have the drive and determination you will make it work for you. Now until I get one of these snotty professors I have heard everyone talk about then I will find a reason to complain. But my professors have been warm, inviting and I ask lots and lots of questions because I fee comfortable, and I have been very shy in the past at my other college and rarely asked for help at all. I have changed a lot grown alot as a person and SCAD will help me continue on my journey. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE APPLYING, EVERYONE ATTENDING OR EVERYONE DEPARTING!
