3 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is okay size. A lot of the equipment is outdated. The gym gets over filled with people at time makes it hard to workout when someone's already using the equipment.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never attended a sporting event but the athletes I see seem to work and practice very hard.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's amazing how much they push students to explore new creative ideas.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I have made friends from a variety of sexuality, religions, and ethnicity. I heard more controversy over why an animation/tv show had a horrible plot than anything concerning diversity.

Drug Safety: Honestly, I don't know. I've lived off-campus my whole time at SCAD. So far, I haven't heard any outrageous stories and I've been here for two years.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You will learn a lot, but prepare to stress over some nights and lose sleep. If you are creative, open-minded, and persistent, you'll be fine. If you have horrible time-management skills, you will suffer. So far, most of my professors I have loved and have appreciated. I admit that I have grown discouraged in class many times because I just couldn't grasp the terminology or the software interface. I even grew intimidated by neighboring animators who were creating things ten times better than my work. The key is to not to be afraid to ask for help. Believe it or not, it makes your classmates feel great to be able to provide assistance, and it builds bonds. You also discover that the people that are better were once in your shoes and had to improve along the way as well. Class sizes range depending on what course you are taking (about 10-20 students per class)

Overall Experience: We are constantly having employers visiting the school and offering portfolio reviews. Every year during Winter Quarter, we have the Career Fair where we have over a hundred companies standing by to network with (It gets packed though; prepare for long lines). We also have an online Job Portal to see open positions for internships, freelance, and full/part-time positions in various areas. We have Career Advisers to speak to if you are questioning if you are on the right path with what you are studying. Alumni will even return to the school and present what all it took to obtain a job at whatever company/studio. We also have workshops to help prepare you for interviews, writing a resume, entrepreneurship, how to freelance, and anything else one can think of.

Health & Safety: Our campus is spread across Downtown Savannah, so it can be easy to be targeted. Fortunately, SCAD has buses constantly doing routes around the clock, apps to download to know exactly when and where the bus will stop, security roving around the city, and late night hours in SCAD buildings with security near by. Of course, one should always have a buddy when traveling at night, but overall I'd say it's safe. No town is perfect, but you should be fine as long as you follow safety precautions.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school buildings are spread across Downtown Savannah, Ga. Events are constantly happening that makes it easy to network and socialize. As for the school, the workload can be crazy, but you'll be amazed as to how much you learn within a few quarters. I admit that I lost a lot of sleep some nights because of multiple projects assigned at once. Time management is a requirement at SCAD.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a variety of intramurals for students to participate in. Personally, I have not participated in them, but flyers are normally around the campus to let students know when they can participate and support for games.

Campus Housing: Many times the reality is that it's cheaper to live off campus but if you have to rely on local bus systems and have no car your hands are pretty much tied and you have to stay at your best bet on campus. All freshman dorms are pretty much the same. If you get stuck with 2 other roommates though it can feel kind of cramped. The upperclassmen apartment type dorms are the best option but they are the most expensive. I live in the Terrace and while it's pretty decent and in a nice part of town it's the farthest away from class buildings so unless you have a car expect roundabout school bus routes that take almost an hour out of the day back and forth. The housing process is pretty easy.

Overall Experience: My experience so far has been okay. I really enjoy the classes and the professors are pretty passionate about what they teach. I think this school is pretty unique in that it's spread all over the city of Savannah. Also, that it has people from different types of companies show up and do interviews or portfolio reviews for jobs or internships quite often. An issue I have would be that because the school is spread across the city and mainly downtown it doesn't feel incredibly safe. Even knowing and seeing some security around sometimes it's still weird for me walking around downtown but I guess it could just be that I'm not a city person.
