I attended SCAD Atlanta.BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
I attended SCAD Atlanta. Overall was a great experience. I end up transferring out and changing my major. Atlanta is a great exciting city. The students at SCAD ATL were interesting, Some were stuck up, close minded, self absorbed, and some were very nice. Spring House sucks, it could use a lot of renovation. Spring House is a waste of money pretty much. I would suggest bringing a car. The ACA dorms are very nice and updated. Alot of students transfer out. Some realize I couldn't afford it and leave after their first year. MAKE sure you can afford it before going to SCAD. Art supplies are very experience. Expect to pay a couple hundred on art supplies at the beginning of every quarter. I spent about 500 on supplies the first quarter. SCAD Atlanta is very small, and everybody knows everybody after a while. I decided I didn't want to do fashion design anymore or go to an art school anymore. SCAD keeps you very busy. A common slogan at SCAD Is Sleep Comes After Death. During finals, you see students sleeping everywhere. SCAD gives project after project. They just pretty much hand you projects and that's it. Critiques are long and boring. Overall I don't regret coming to SCAD Atlanta, it was a great experience. I miss it sometimes. I would recommend the school to anybody interested in art. If you want to go to SCAD, than I say go for it. Don't let no one stop you from going after your dreams. No college is perfect, everybody has a different experience.

I liked my time at SCAD.BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I liked my time at SCAD. The facilities have been amazing and all of the faculty have been good to work with as long as you are willing to put in the hours. It is like many things in life if you put the time and effort you will do well and have a good experience. If you do not want to put in the time/slack off then you will not have success and the professors will not take time away from the students who do work hard.

I'm at SCAD-Atl therefore the experience is extremelyQuite BrightOther
I'm at SCAD-Atl therefore the experience is extremely different to that of Savannah. I was in Savannah for ten weeks, and I hated it. SCAD-Atl is wonderful. Well worth the time and the money, wonderful resources, teachers and shorter lines than Savannah.

I have met many of my idols in the last couple years through the school: Colson Whitehead, Janece Shaffer, Margaret Atwood, among countless others. We did not attend lecture we had small-ten person-round-table-discussions with these people, at the Literature Center Ivy Hall. Personally as a person who does not use financial aid, i would suggest that if money is a huge problem for you, go to a different school SCAD is an expensive once in a lifetime experience, but most private colleges are.
