SCAD is the WAL-MART of art schools. Plain and simple, that is the best that I can describe a school that operates as a business with unscrupulous practices at the expense of its patrons with disregard to all moral obligation to grab more profits. SCAD has had a shady history with a student revolution in 1991, pipe bombs and all, to the SCAD.info controversy a couple of years ago.

Here is a good history on the early years of the school and the student revolution: http://linguafranca.mirror.theinfo.org/9607/Savannah.html

The SCAD.info controversy included a resigned Professor that refused to accept a fraudulent degree from the institution while teaching, in order to just have a masters. He setup a website for teachers, faculty, parents, and students to p ost their stories of their experiences at the school. For a while, (while I attended in 2003), SCAD had the website SCAD.info blocked on all computers connected to their network due to the dissenting information about the school. Crazy, eh? I wish I could find a cached page of the website, but since then the school has obviously stretched its financial muscle and had the site taken down all together.

SCAD has now exercised WAL-MART like practices by setting up a campus in Atlanta and putting the Atlanta College of Art "out of business" through a merger that didn't include the opinions of students there. Here is an interesting point of view here: http://www.wiredatom.com/blog/2005/07/26/scad-says-resistance-is-futile-you-will-be-assimilated/

If you are considering attending this school. Don't. Go to a state university, get a well rounded education and go to one of the NASAD accredited Art Institutes schools for your art vocation. Because essentially that is all SCAD really is, a vocational school.
