If you are going to attend SCAD, makeBrightCommunications
If you are going to attend SCAD, make sure you have a lot of money. That is true with any university, however, when you start out at SCAD, you take different types of drawing classes, which force you to spend money on art supplies required for the course. Im a film major going into my second year and im taking drawing classes because, from what i understand, its required at SCAD. These art supplies range from $300 to $1500 per semester. So cant just go to Walmart and expect to find the supplies there. SCAD has a store that carries this unique range of supplies, and the store is located on campus.

SCAD also makes you pay for laundry. At my last school laundry was free, but you had to bring your own detergent. $1 FOR DRYING and a $1 for washing. This may not sound expensive in the short run, but in the long run it is. Books at any campus are always expensive, but when you add art supplies and washing/ drying clothes, books become your last priority. Make sure you come SCAD with lots of extra money.

Save your money andQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Save your money and time, go to a real art school, not a university of an art school. What that means is that they're trying to get as many people to increase their profits.

Everyone gets into SCAD that applies.BrightArchitecture
Everyone gets into SCAD that applies. However, once class starts and the school work is applied, most of the people that shouldn't be in college get weeded out. By your junior year you start to realize that you ARE paying for something worthwhile. Would I tell you to come here? No. I believe that there are better art schools out there, that are cheaper, that can do the same thing for you, and that are in a safer environment. The crime here is outrageous. Expect to have your things stolen out of you car, or worse, out of your house, no matter where you live. Speaking from experience, every single person I know that has been here for the four years has experienced some sort of crime, or felt unsafe at several points of their SCAD career. What does SCAD do about it? Nothing. I was robbed at gunpoint at 7pm on a Sunday by four men in front of my own home in midtown, a safe area of town. They took my car and the rest of the belongings I had on me. What did SCAD do. Nothing. I reported the crime to SCAD after contacting the police, and they have done nothing for me, not even have the counseling department contact me. The school hides things, and for a good reason... to keep kids coming and paying. This place might look beautiful when you're here, but walk one block in any direction and you are suddenly in a place where you are not wanted. My advice to you is to be very careful, especially girls. Worse things can happen, and believe me, they have.
