SCAD can be described in one word: excellent. Everything they do is amazing! The facilities are outfitted with the latest technology, software, and supplies, the professors are outstanding members in their fields, and their job connections are better than any other art school. In my first quarter alone, I have seen a tremendous improvement in my artistic ability and have been thoroughly challenged academically. A university unlike any other, SCAD brings hundreds of employers to their students every year and brings industry professionals to events like the Savannah Film Festival and SCAD Fashion Week. My experience so far has been incredible and I would recommend SCAD to any student seeking a degree in a creative field.

Housing depends on where you live. I'm a freshman and I live in Turner house annex. We have bad plumbing but every problem we've had gets fixed the next day. We also have our own pool and basically giants m guaranteed parking. We're also close to the bus lot. Turner annex is going to be for upperclassmen next year. The whole campus is spread apart so the dorms are only close to classes depending on your major and schedule so pick your housing and schedule strategically. Social atmosphere- depends on the people you choose to hang around your first couple of weeks. My next door has literally become my best friend and it's amazing the kind of people you meet at art school because everyone has a lot in common. The housing process is extremely easy. You can contact housing and they'll immediately respond next day with any issues you have with room placement. Cost wise housing is expensive and in some cases more expensive than living off campus but if you're on scholarship then choosing to live off campus will cause you to lose scholarship money. Truthfully Savannah isn't entirely safe so living on campus offers campus security and safety. I've visited other schools and seen their housing and scad provides more space. Plus no community bathroom! One bathroom per room which houses two people. Housing, overall and just like scad, is what you make of it.

The dorms (especially the freshman dorms) are great! There's a lot more space than the average university dorms, but it is crammed due to the art supplies and portfolios of each student. The down side is that the upperclassman dorms don't have a great common area (except for Montgomery Hall). It would be nice to have a place to go besides your hall/library/dorm/dining halls. The dorms aren't super close to any of the halls because it's a city campus. Students bike or take the SCAD bus. Sometimes I walk but only if it's light outside. Once it's dark, I take the bus since Savannah can be dangerous at night. Just use common sense and don't be stupid.
