I know there are a lot of people out there
who are speaking negatively about this school and trust me
I could give you an ear full.
But let me
say this. SCAD is a business first. They
need to make money just like the rest of us.
Is the money you spend at SCAD worth it?
It is expensive I will give you that but
you get a good education but it is up to
you to make the best of it. The professors
will not spoon feed you materials, information or jobs.
If they feel you are qualified they will recommend
you for a job and trust me when I say
it is possible to get work with a degree from
As far as safety is concerned I
don't care what other people say. This town has
it's dark side but it is also beautiful and if
you take proper precautions than you will be ok. For
example don't walk alone at night, don't leave stuff in
your car where people can see it. Be smart.
Do your research and take your core classes at another
school like a community college. You will SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE money by doing that and possibly get out
a little sooner.
Utilize the resources they give
you. If you can, work late into the night
when the labs clear up. I am tired of
people blaming the school for the cities problems. It
is not SCAD's fault that there is no parking.
There really is no place to build parking decks.
Face it if you go to SCAD you are moving
to a tourist town first not a college town.
I would recommend this school and trust me when
I say I have every reason not to but I
felt I got a good education from it. The
departments and the school are still young and they are
learning and with each year it get's a little better.
My final thought. Contact alumni. That is
what we are here for. If you don't trust
the school to hook you up with one then look
it up on line. FACEBOOK is a good source
or you can even get a one on one lunch
with a student from the major you want to major
in. Ask questions.
Good luck and have
