Overall Rating

Coming into the Savannah College of Art and Design, I only heard positive things from other people. However, being a high school senior I didn't know what I was getting myself into. While the workload is strenuous, I have not had one bad experience with this university. My professors always encourage the students and constant give extra help sessions. While most people complain about taking foundation courses, I have already seen the connection between them and my major courses. The facilities at SCAD exceeded all expectations and they have everything you would possibly need to be the most successful student. To enhance the facilities, the city if Savannah always encourages the students and, especially because I am an architecture major, it has enhanced my learning experience. For me, the most memorable experience was meeting the creator of SpiderMan and the Hulk, Stan Lee. While, like I said previously, am an architecture major, I am an avid super hero fan and meeting Mr. Lee was a dream come true. SCAD brings in many celebrities, designers and inspirations which have only enhanced my experience here.
