    Come to the school and take a tour of campus. SCAD is a little different from typical colleges, so make sure you like it here before you commit. Don't worry about making your portfolio professional level quality...they're looking for potential, and then its their job to turn you into professionals.

    Apply early and find as many scholarships as you can because it definitely helps. Also keep everything up to date (if you have great grades) because it will increase your scholarship amounts. When you apply you only have to submit 2 things, but definitely submit the recommended materials as well.

    Make sure you have good time management skills because there is a lot of work. If you can come in with credits for English or art history or math from AP scores I would do it. I took AP art but didn't score high enough for credit, which is actually ok with me because I love my drawing class. The more credits you have, the sooner you can register for next quarter classes which means you can pick good professors and times.

    Listen to the safety tips and try to always stick with a buddy especially when walking far distances. Pay attention in your First Year Experience class you might learn something very valuable about navigating your personal page on the schools website. Try to volunteer for the Film Festival in the fall or other opportunities and attend some lectures they give you good experience and knowledge for future jobs and they're fun. Watch where you walk, this may sound arbitrary but look before you cross streets and squares Savannah is a tourist city and sometimes even the locals get a little crazy. If you're bringing a bike be confident you can ride it up and down hills and on the road. That's the law here. Have SCAD Security's number and app. If you ever feel unsafe they will help you.
