SCAD is a great school; I think that

Jul 10 2002Undecided
SCAD is a great school; I think that the location is its highest selling point, however, there are some great program that really sell for themselves too: The Fibers department has one of the most extensive facilities in the nation with a Jacquard AVL loom, and most of the teachers have MFAs from Cranbrook, the leading Fibers Masters program probably in the country. The computer arts department is probably the most heavily funded and well-regarded. If you are going to major in something related to computer art, go to SCAD. A 500,000 ft. computer arts facility will be opening soon. The scary part about SCAD is the heirarchy and its corruption rumors. Some people don't like the foundation courses required for every major, but I think it gives everyone a solid visual arts foundation, depending on the teacher. Speaking of teachers, there are good ones and bad ones in foundation courses, but generally once you reach your major, the professors are excellent.

I definately recomend this

I definately recomend this school. This is not a big city but a friendly one which makes it easier to settle with the change. If you really love the arts and can find yourself motivated enough, there is enough top of the line equipment and other talented people to help you grow.

The dedication and friendliness of the faculty is overwhelming. The professors are genuinely interested in helping each of their students find a personal path within their art. If you are motivated, interested in a challenge and ready to explore your creative ability, you will thrive at this school. But if you are looking at college as a way to expand your social life, Savannah is not the city for you. The city is small, quiet and FILLED with aging tourists. Also, the college brings in a GREAT deal of money each year, but seems to use that money more for marketing to future students of SCAD, rather than for the well-being of the current student body (i.e. campus safety or parking!). It seems there are a lot of politics at play within this town and college, almost to the point that it feels as if the administrative departments are more interested in the FUTURE of the school, rather than the present. But those political ties and funding allocation mishaps exist in every school, public and private, and do not interfere with the excellent teaching and the opportunities for personal growth.
