    Know what you're getting into with art school. Many freshmen drop out their first quarter because they are unprepared for foundational courses in drawing, design, painting, and literature. Also, apply for as many scholarships as you can, and get to know other students who share your interests.

    A helpful strategy that I have recently taken up is doing my homework the night I receive it. My homework load in the first semester was stacked and the main reason for this was because I didn't do my homework until the night before. Doing it the day you receive it gets it out of the way so you can go do other things. Plus, if you notice a mistake, you have an extra day (or a few, depending on if it's the weekend or not) to fix your errors before submitting it. It's a great way of staying on top of things.

    Art school may seem like an easy route to many, but let me tell you, it's not all arts and crafts. The work at SCAD is especially rigorous and requires endless hours of hard work and talent.

    Keep your ID card on you at all times. I keep mine on a key chain with my flash drive, room key, and bike lock key. Double check that you have everything before you leave for class. You have to carry a lot of supplies usually. Too many times I've forgotten something and wasn't able to properly participate in class. Don't go to Tybee every weekend, there's no way you can have time for that and still get A's. Don't skip class for no reason. You'll miss a lot and after 4 absenses you fail the course. Save those for when you're sick. The bus systems annoying but necessary as foundations courses are about 15 minutes away from freshman dorms. Get to the bus stop at least a half an hour before class. Don't go to Ex Libris all the time. Blick has better prices. Just take the purple or silver bus and get off at Jen library. Take up a minor. It is worth it and manageable. Even if you don't end up doing that, try at least one course in a different major. See if you can take some gen ed courses over the summer at a community college. It'll save you a lot of money. You'd have to apply for transient credit first. If you're going through the application process and have lower than a 3.3-3.4 GPA, submit as many things as possible even if they're not required: statement of purpose, a strong portfolio.

    From the moment I saw SCAD, I knew that it was the place for me but, part of me was afraid that I was not good enough. After my first day of Freshman year I realized the "I'm not good enough" feeling was mutual among almost all of my peers. I was worried that the workload would be overwhelming and my talent would not be up to par. Don't stress it, just remind yourself that you will meet friends that are in the same boat as you. The professors here at SCAD grade strictly of effort and progress, I recommend staying motivated and you will excel far beyond what you could imagine.
