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 testimony to the unique abilities of the student population.

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. The southern charm mixed with the art SCAD students bring from painting, fashion, graphics, and theatre is what makes Savannah so great!

I didn't go in, but this very nice college is right in the heart of Savannah. You will most likely walk right past when walking around the city.

Working closely with the city, SCAD administration has worked hard to select, purchase and renovate all of these buildings to the exact standards of historical preservation. It is surprising to be walking along the streets in the... More

This was one of our top places visited during our trip to Savannah! We just happened upon it, but we recommend you go there for all is artistic from the paint used on the walls to the tree on which prospective students have written the reason for which they hope to be accepted (very moving!). It is a living museum... More

The campus is spread out through the city. We went when school was on break so it was less crowded. There are so beautiful buildings that are a part of the campus

Loved the way Savannah College of Art and Design worked to solve real world issues - like how to preserve and revitalize some of the best buildings in an old city.
