Local Area: I love Savannah, even it is disgustingly humid most of the time! It's beautiful and full of history. Everyone should visit Savannah at least once in their lifetime. The shopping and attractions are mostly outside the historic district, so if you don't have a car it's hard to go there regularly.

Local Area: Atlanta is a big city with about 6 million people. Although SCAD in Atlanta may be a smaller school, theres always something to do within the city very close within the area.

Local Area: SCAD Atlanta is in Midtown with the High Museum of Art and a Concert Hall right next to the ACA dorm. During the weekends, the SCAD shuttles also take students to Atlantic Station which has Regal Cinema, shops, restaurants, Publix and Target which are all around 15 minutes walk.

For art supplies, on the other side of SCAD has Sam Flax which is an art supplies store and at the beginning of each quarter, there is a special shuttle which runs to Binders, which is also an art store.
