| If you visit an expensive restaurant, you expect GREAT service, GREAT food, and a GREAT atmosphere. If not, you are being ripped off. Right?|
SCAD is just that. A lot of money invested in public relations, marketing, advertising, recruiting - but that college itself and the quality of education is not of consistent quality.
One fine example of this sub-par service is how poor the facilities were maintained. I could be picky and say there is some littler outside the buildings and the toilets getting clogged. But when I visited the architecture building to use the computer lab and found food garbage on the floor, computers with dirty screens, sticky tables that hadn't been wiped down in months, and a noticeably dirty carpet...
That's when sh*t hit the fan. HOW in the world am I paying such a high tuition for this level of service??? I can clearly remember my PUBLIC elementary school having cleaner facilities than this. Why isn't maintenance a priority for SCAD? And why do people that attend SCAD have such low-standards. I, for one, demand a better experience for the mount of money the school is asking me to pay.
I can't speak for every building, as I'm sure some are more desirable than others. But from my experience as an Industrial Design major, my building was NOTHING to brag about. It is located far from the historic district (i.e., the ghetto), and the building itself has very few windows (thus little natural light going in), and, to add injury to insult, there is NOWHERE to relax, think, or socialize outside. Except for a small bench shoved in a corner which where all the smokers go. It is an oppressive environment to say the least. I DON'T RECOMMEND SCAD FOR INDUSTRIAL DESIGN.On a positive note: there were some excellent professors, the bus system is helpful and reasonably reliable, the food is usually a hit, sometimes a miss (depends how picky you are), and the city of Savannah is great if you love walking. It is NOT a bad school, but for the money they ask for and the way they brag about their school, I expected a much richer experience.

| SCAD comes across as a great school, and it has an ability to be a great school, unfortunately it isn't. The school pumps more money into promoting the school than preserving the relationship with their current students. SCAD provides opportunities for extra curricular trips but you have to be selected for it, which limits the already limited trips that are available. The dorms are terrible and they have terrible maintenance. SCAD is more about the money than anything else. I understand its a business but there is a point where you have to respect the people paying you. The majority people that work in the offices are former SCAD students, so that says something. SCAD is great if everything works in your favor, if not it can be a nightmare. Making friends is very difficult unless you are always partying or doing drugs. Also as a straight male it is very difficult because there are few girls that are normal, and you always have other gay men hitting on you since the majority of guys here are gay. Its a rough school and I'm only here because they have a very specific minor that I am looking for but if any other school offered it I would be there in a heartbeat. |
