SCAD is an awesome school. IGNORE the negative comments, they are from lazy useless people. If you take advantage of all the school can offer you, you WILL have an awesome experience here. HUNDREDS of top industry professionals pick SCAD to teach, and HUNDREDS of incredible places come to SCAD to recruit. There is no bad departments. There are certainly some professors that aren't quite up to par, but if you complain guess what, it gets taken care of. My Drawing 1 professor was completely insane. So I taped on of the classes, showed it to the Head of Foundations and she suddenly wasn't teaching anymore. If you are pro-active you can make anything happen. The school wants to be the best, they have a lot of investors and strive to gain popularity and status. To the people complaining about having to take Drawing when they're here for film, or some other non-traditional form of art: are you high? Seriously? Drawing well is a still ANY artist MUST have. How can you expect to make good films if you can't even layout a drawing in a pleasing way? Drawings don't move, film does. Foundations are NOT a waste of time; they teach you basic skills that every artist needs. So stop complaining you lazy piece of garbage. This is not a school for lazy people. It's true, many students come in and many students drop out. I am currently a senior and only the most dedicated students are still in my class. You have to work hard, be pro-active and embrace challenges with a good attitude. The food is also perfectly fine. I've lived on campus all 4 years with no issues. If you treat people kindly and with respect (this is the south ya'll) they will help you out. There are TONS of places to eat, not just one. And they improve the quality of the meals every year. Equally, food should NOT be a deciding factor on where you go to school. Unless you suffer from an eating disorder... My only qualm with the school is the newly added Equestrian Department. It makes NO sense whatsoever. Maybe if it was being headed up by a well known figure in the "Horse World" I would be inclined to agree that it deserves a place, but no it's headed up by a SCAD grad who has zero qualifications and a bad attitude to boot. I picked SCAD out of many different schools because of the horses (and the scholarship helped too) and I was treated like dirt by this woman. I am not wealthy, I haven't gone to big horse shows, I don't own a nice horse, therefore I wasn't worth her time. And on that note, this is The Savannah College of Art and Design. I don't see any reason why the school has dumped so much money into a ridiculous horse department. It is just completely illogical.
Responses
responseLOL the horses were added around 2003 when Paula Wallace used school money to buy her daughter horses, but then had to explain that. SCAD has 100% gone downhill since I graduated in 2005, including the firing of the founder of the Sequential Art Department, and them trying to get him arrested for bullshit reasons the cops laugh at them about. The politics that ruin the school are there and getting worse yearly, don't pretend they're not. I wouldn't recommend it at all now. When I went there it was better, but it's bad now.
