Describes the faculty as:
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.
BUT, Scad 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 cockroaches.
