Bunch of people got scabies and once they sought for help, the head of maintenance Cindy Murray said she doesn't care! She actually said that! It's not SCAD, but A SCAM infested with SCABIES! You're paying 50000 a year, and there is no color printer available on the whole campus for student use! The food sucks! I stopped eating normally... I can't afford eating out everyday and I'm often hungry, but once I get to the cafeteria, I can't eat! I got no appetite.. Local grown food my ass! GMO shit, that's what it is! If you're a first-year student, you are not allowed to park at any SCAD buildings, unless its your dorm. They are trying to encourage you to learn how to use metered parking! Otherwise you'll get a ticket! All they need is your money! Beware!

SCAD seems to place getting your money out of your pockets and into millionaire Paula Wallace's bank accounts above all other considerations. Can you get a good education here? Of course. Is it worth the price? Not really in my opinion and experience. To put it politely, the staff at SCAD were not "up front" with me about certain matters, wasting my time and money. My counselor was clueless and unhelpful. My interaction with the head of one of the departments was very negative, and their interaction with me was needlessly rude and abusive on their part. The resulting complaint to the ombudsman - almost comically complicated to file, and of course with no real consequences to the person who treated me so absurdly awfully. My experience showed me that you cannot trust any of the people you're paying to do what they're paid to do. You have to hound everybody to get anything done or they will drop the ball. My experience with my hometown community college, by contrast was exceptionally professional and efficient. SCAD cost much more, but the service and professionalism amongst the staff was relatively poor. It doesn't inspire much confidence when your community college seems to deliver and your mega-expensive college won't or maybe can't. After talking to other people who majored in the same field at other colleges, I get the impression that SCAD is particularly bad in this respect. The only thing keeping me from giving SCAD one star is the fact that one may actually be able to get an excellent education. But everything else about the college - from the rudeness of the staff, to the ever changing faculty, to the high prices and irritatingly poorly planned campus pull the rating way down. Yeah, I learned, but it was an incredibly frustrating and unsatisfactory experience, and I felt like I was wasting my money every step of the way. If you can get into some place else - get into some place else.

As an alumnus, I love to tell people about my experiences at The Savannah College of Art and Design and hope this helps you in your search. SCAD is a special place, set in a special city. The flagship campus in Savannah has one of the most unique relationships with a city I have ever come across in the history of my exploration of urban spaces. SCAD's buildings are scattered about the historic district comprising the backbone of the urban structure. Great place to study. I have also been to their Atlanta campus and see another unique relationship between the student and school. SCAD Atlanta campus combines the intimate feel of a small campus with the exciting rush of vibrant, large city. Another great place to study. Academically, SCAD is a young school. They have not yet reached the total years of refinement as in other institutions. However, their educational structure seems extremely thorough and diligent to the growth of art and designers. With the foundation set, it will be exciting to see where SCAD is in 10, 50, or 100 years. If I would have to project, they would continue to be the forefront of art and design in higher education. To be frank, when I see negative comments about SCAD I am not surprised. SCAD has the resources and the instruction for you to be great. It is up to you! On how hard you work and how you are going to take advantage of these resources when you are here. When I see these negative comments, I often see the person revealing their work ethic or understanding about SCAD's resources in the comment. So I am not alarmed. I hope this helps your understanding of SCAD and I wish you luck in your search.

Not an "excellent" school. Very much stuck in the past with old-fashioned, southern ideals, and thinking. The progressive, new, forward-thinking, world changing work is being done in the Northeast and West coast. Graphic design and photography schools are especially weak overall. A big red flag is that there are lots of SCAD grads back teaching/working at SCAD because no one wants to work there and no one wants to hire them. Unfortunately, the quality of teachers and quality of teaching is not very high at all. SCAD is a for-profit, non-accredited school, basically anyone can teach here and it shows. The professors are of very mediocre quality, not well known or accomplished in their respective fields, and do just enough to get by. That said, there are occasionally some star students who graduate from the school with impressive portfolios but this reflects more on these individual's inherent talent rather than the teaching being done.
