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:
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.
