The best thing about SCAD is the environment that the school has created for its students. There are so many events, lectures, programs, etc going on every day that are directly related to our careers that its tough to choose which ones to go to. Everyone is so invested in helping us succeed that they have created a place for us to grow and prosper as artists and designers.
The worst thing about this school, which truly isn't terrible is that it is spread out across the city. There is no "SCAD Campus" per say. Each academic building is placed somewhere in the historic district and a bus system is required to get to many of them (provided by SCAD!).
Yes, Because I have learned so much since I got here. If it weren't for SCAD, I would never be ready to go out into the real world. Every project, every paper, and every lecture is geared towards preparing students for the real world. Companies know that we will be good employees simply because we have attended this school.

I wish I knew How much work it really is. We live 20 minutes from the beach and I have been 4 times since I started college two years ago!
