Now, maybe this is kind of a poor analogy, but most of SCAD's student body are the social outcasts of high school who haven't grown up. I really tried to be a mature young adult there, trying to make myself and the school better. But many other students would have none of it. They were content to complain because they felt better doing that. So, after about two months of trying this, I spent the rest of the year drinking whiskey and smoking weed, probably because I was absolutely miserable. I was spending \(22k/year to attend a very good school, but trying to make friends was impossible, because I was "different" from the "SCAD different", or the snooty, angsty, pompous 19 yr old who think their crap doesn't stink because they're in art school and they have \)$.

As for stuff to do, there is very little if you're under 21. Either do what I did and make a fake ID for liquor stores/clubbing, or spend your free time on your computer.
Basically, think about this before attending:
If you answered yes to any of these three questions, look into SCAD further before going full steam ahead. As for me, I left after a year and a half and am very happily attending a cheaper college in Florida
