Greek Life: We don't have Greek life

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school! The student community is great, classes are interesting, and most professors care about their job. SCAD and the city of Savannah always have something going on, so you will never be bored on the weekends. SCAD is a big deal here, so most employers are willing to work around your school schedule, which makes getting a job pretty easy.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't have a lot of experience with the job/internship prospects but the school sets you up with a mentor from your field, and will connect you with an alumni mentor if you ask for one. As far as the value of a degree from this school, the school seems to have a great reputation and people have respect for the school.

Health & Safety: The SCAD buildings are really safe (you have to have a school ID to get into most of them). However, SCAD doesn't really have a "campus", it's just a bunch of different buildings in the Savannah area; so if you are going from building to building at night, it can be a little dangerous. The school does a really good job of providing shuttles not only for classes, but for student and faculty use in the evenings and on the weekends. If you are biking from place to place, get 2 bike locks. Bike stealing is a major crime in this city, register your bike with the police.

Campus Housing: I looked into the dorms and felt that they were overpriced for what you get, and the rules were a little strict. No drinking, smoking, pets, or overnight guests. Private rooms are only available to students with a medical issue. I chose to live off campus, and I'm a 20 min bike ride to all the SCAD buildings. A lot of students look on craigslist and rent a room off campus, or find a roomie to rent off campus with.

Greek Life: I personally think that the lack of Greek Life is great, the college is very adamant about not having Greek Life on campus.

Athletics: If you get on the SCAD Athletics website, they will keep you on to date on sporting events and they have scholarships for athletics. However, the arts pretty much rule the campus. There seems to be a lot more money and time spent on advertising for art events.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is an easy school to get in to, however, be prepared to work hard to stay there. Professors expect you to be independent and confident enough to ask for help if you need it.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very safe campus. Plenty of late night ride options for those working late.

Greek Life: There is no Greek life which everyone thinks is wonderful.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Not many students care about athletics at SCAD. It is an art school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: SAD is excellent preparation for artistic students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The students had high school spirit and supported the athletes. They went all out, following the quote, "Go Big or Go Home."

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Fontainebleau High school was not a bad school, but not challenging. I do not believe it helped in preparing students for college as the students were capable of being lazy and passing with decent grades.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: No real trouble in or around campus. Security does a pretty good job and the student body knows all the guidelines set out from orientation.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't really any fraternities or sororities in the Atlanta campus. Not that I know of.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SCAD's pretty good. Facilities are great, students and faculty are pretty nice and hardworking. Classes are rigorous yet helpful in building upon established skills and knowledge and teaching you new ways to utilize them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was located at Turner House and there were definitely some really great food options between the deli and the bagel shop. Rooms are a bit small but I like my roommates so we made it work. The bus system for freshmen is terrible.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really love being at art school. Everyone can relate to each other because we're all artists and have an appreciation for creativity. Being in this environment encourages each of us to grow in our own work.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: SCAD is the best! You have to work hard and strive for your full potential, because that is what is expected of SCAD students but it is totally worth it, and will prepare you to be a professional artist in the real world.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The connections, relationships, etc that you will make at SCAD are priceless and will be the key to finding work after college.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is almost never a time when a security guard is not easily accessible.

4 College Senior

Athletics: SCAD doesn't have a huge athletics department, but we do have several sports for the people who would like to be active. I am glad that SCAD does not put so much emphasis on sports because we are an art school and every other school already has sports under control.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: SCAD is a dream come true. It's not easy, but they provide you with the best professors and up to date resources related to the majors and careers. Plus, the connections you make with professors, other students, faculty, alumni, etc is priceless! In the art world, personal relationships are everything and SCAD is the perfect place to build them. It's expensive and takes a lot of long hard days and sleepless nights but it's so worth it! Your professors will only push you to reach your full potential.
