    We have kids who love the arts, so this college is high on the list. They make a great impression (I would hope so, given the population), but its also a nice visit. The tour is by bus, led by student...  more »

    My son is looking at SCAD and I am continually amazed at the talent of these kids. The influence is throughout the entire city and what a great place to study. The art museum and college tour are a te...  more »

    So many talents live in Savannah and attend SCAD. All over the city you will find where SCAD fingerprints are. So much of the modern artwork seen around is done by the designers and creators at SCAD. ...  more »

    I studied Graphic Design and Painting at SCAD many years ago when it was a smaller school. Although I did enjoy the fine arts environment and made some lasting friendships there—I do not think the school did a great job of providing its students with real world skills that would actually pay off in the market place. My recommendation to prospective students is to talk with industry professionals that are doing the work you eventually want to do and get a feel for the job itself and also the salary it will pay. The high price of this school does not provide a good ROI (return on investment) for it’s students. After I moved to Atlanta and attended a different art school I got the skills I needed to have a productive career, I stayed busy and could not only pay my bills but do much more. I would strongly recommend taking a look at the practical side of the education you are looking for and diligently explore your options.

    SCAD is, in a word, perfect. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to have spent 4 years of my life there. Savannah and the school itself are the opposite of depressing. If you want 4 years of fun and have them result in an actual high-paying career, go to SCAD!

    Dropped into the SCAD cafe for a quick refreshing drink. They serve a variety of juices, sodas and waters with energy vitamin packets available. What makes the place interesting is the double decker bus which serves as the kitchen.

    Really unique and great finds! A bit pricey but nice to see the creativity!

    TL;DR: You can save yourself a lifetime of soul-crushing debt by passing on this school. SCAD is beautiful but hollow, full of empty promises that WILL ruin your life for many, many years to come. Unless you're filthy rich and have time to waste. I graduated from SCAD almost 3 years ago with a degree in Film & Television. To get straight to the point: This school is only out to make money, PERIOD. This school's reputation has clearly been bought and paid for, because as a person that attended full-time for 5 consecutive years (taking classes across multiple departments) I can attest that the education I received was mediocre at best. The ratio of what I actually learned from this school to how much debt I have accrued because of it (SIX FIGURES of soul-crushing, life-consuming, endless debt) is laughable. Don't enable their greedy, soulless succubus of a president/CEO by attending this wildly expensive joke of an educational institution. The campus is beautiful and I love the city of Savannah & the time I spent there with all my heart, BUT the biggest regret of my life was attending this school.
