ready to see alot of people who hated gym in
highschool. The average male height is somewhere around 5' 6”
and most of these kids look like they've been hit
in the head with a dodge-ball a few too many
times. If you're under 21, theres nothing to do, but
go to a few parties (drink fast, you have approx.
30 min till the cops come) and to try not
to get mugged or shot while in the ghettos outside
the nicer downtown area. Don't have a nice car, it
will get the windsheild smashed and the gas siphoned the
first time you park it any where other than next
to a cop car.
Look, Scad isn't all bad.
I thought some of the professors were really great, the
weather is nice and warm, and if you're 21 theres
about 15-20+ bars downtown.
is basically an empire cleverly designed as an art school.
Paula Wallace has 3 mansions on
Forsyth Park plus another being restored for prospective investors. If
you're in the dorms, you will be paying $700.00 plus
another $150.00 an month for room ( a converted motel
room which you share) and mandatory meal plan. The room
is NOT worth the price. If you're really determined to
go, please, please, don't throw away your money; Get out
there, contact some ppl. and rent a place.
I'm skinny, but I like my eats. The
food from the madatory meal plan is basically cafeteria food
all over again. SYSCO, the company Scad gets their food
service from, is the same company which PRISONS buy their
food servies from. And we know we splurge on prisoners...
Scad claims that you may be exempt from the meal
plan if you show a valid dr.s notice, so in
threory, the crappy meal plan is no biggie. Just get
a notice, and your off. Wrong. I was suffering from
various allergies, got the Handwritten, faxed, emailed and phone-called versions
of my dr. notice, but was turned away by the
officals, because Food Allergies don;t count.
The “Palmetto Bugs"
My first day I saw a guy about
200+ lb.s come shreiking out of his room, screaming somthing
about a 'moving turd'. This was the first of a
long line of aquantances with “Palmetto bugs”. The large, skittery,
brown, shiny, creepy bugs which swarm all over Savannah. One
of the few times you will see the staff laugh
is when one of the bugs takes off after some
student. Despite what they told us at orientation, we knew
there was no way those weren't cockroaches, Big, Bad, Will-Carry-You-Off-In-The-Night
