Describes the faculty as:
Parking is terrible, and SCAD tells you not to bring a car. the bus system doesnt take you to all the places you will have to go for supplies or feild trips, and has a bad habit of not stopping to pick you up to go to or from class. There is a new bus company so it might be better this year, and there enough people with cars you can typically hitch a ride.
Very charming, but with a darker side. Beautiful historic area with really nice places to go, but crime IS a problem and the city smells (paper mill). If you are smart and pay attention you should be ok, but DO NOT rely on the school to keep you safe, unless you are inside a SCAD building they will not claim responsibility (or in my case even if you were).
they will except ANYONE with a check. so, there are some super passionate students who have real talent, and then an equal amount of people who have no talent at all or care about their education.
I have had some of the most helpful, caring , and informative professors here. The majority are wonderful. you get the arrogant ones, but thats true of any school, particularly an art school
Be prepared to work!!!! first year is alot of fluff, but then it gets really really hard. The best advice i could give is to consider the combinations of classes each quarter. I took three studios with heavy work loads and it nearly killed me. Two studios and a lecture is your best bet, but if you have to take three studios (i will end up having to) pick ones that complement one another.Expect break downs, and ALOT of all nighters, but in the end i think it makes you more prepaired for a career in the arts.
Hope this was helpful!!!!
