found the years I spent at SCAD to be exactly
what I made of them... Some of the best years
of my life. I learned A LOT and had a
lot of fun in a city that I will always
Once I graduated from SCAD I
was able to hit the ground running in my field
of study (graphic design). I have also found that the
reputation of the school has treated me extremely well, within
the design community and job market.
I honestly feel that
SCAD provided me with a big advantage over my piers
once I began to apply myself professionally.
Although the school does an excellent job, honing it's students
skills and proficiencies for the working world. They do not
extend the curriculum to cover the business side of the
art world (like most art programs).
Also, I have
heard (but cannot confirm) that the staff is underpaid. I
would hope for better for the passionate staff I was
able to study under.
In my experience, SCAD
gave me EVERYTHING I needed to do what I love
for a living.
