| Savannah College of Art and Design is the biggest waste of money, time, and energy. After the school gets your money, they do not care what happens to you. You only learn the first three weeks of class because that is period when students are more likely to drop a class. |
The film department in particular is exceptionally pointless. You are reminded every day that the classes are useless and do not matter when looking for jobs. The professors care nothing about the students. They are more concerned with their own careers and would rather not waste the time trying to actually teach. If you are thinking about attending SCAD, just take all the money you would spend on tuition and learn your trade yourself. That is essentially what you do at the college anyway.

| I was suprised and deeply saddened to discover out that the Performing Arts Department never looked at my portfolio. I have been taking classes with people that know little or nothing about performing arts other than Glee and Lady Gaga.|
Voice for Performance is the worst class there. It's really just a yoga (Yes, really!). The teacher knows nothing about the subject and just gave out reading assignments copied and pasted from the internet and had us write/reflect about them as well as write reviews on school plays. We never worked on any dialects or voice styles, we just layed on the floor, touched ourselves, and moaned for 8 weeks. 4 years of repertory theater and I was reduced to having to taking a $10,000 yoga class!
The productions are rather cheap looking, despite SCADs massive profit margin, the talent (or lack of) on display is so amature and phony that it is depressing.
My other classes were all academics which were stunningly easy and seemed more like middle school level.
Most of the students in Performing arts, particularly the females, are some of the most close minded, snotty, arrogant, people I've ever met. Nothing against gays, but most of the ones in theater at SCAD act like little girls that dream about being stars. I know many gay "men", but all the SCAD "twinkies" really bring down the talent level.
I consider myself bright, but sometimes naive. I have been very foolish to attend this college and have since left to attend an actual conservatory in Pennsylvania. It took me a couple of tries, because they ACTUALLY watched my auditions.BTW: I found out they never viewed my audition when I saw the envelope in my admissions folder unopened. SCAD is a very dishonest and evil place.

| Sure, I went to this college not only for the art programs but to meet my future wife if possible. Good luck with that because you cannot date any women at this University. Reasons why it's nuts to get a date are: Lesbians(granted it's an art school), No one knows how to communicate without a face book, and being stereotyped. Ask any REAL student at SCAD if they know what I am talking about and they will agree. Other then the dating scene let me get to the point. This school is way over hyped, it's dorms are basically all run down for a 150 k degree you should have the best. Imagine section 8 housing but replace it with a huge SCAD sign in front of it. Food is ran by the same people who feed the prisoners in GA. Nothing but busy work in classes instead of actual learning. Scad is extremely unfriendly for a college and cult like. |
