  • Is not bad nor great. The advantage of staying in the dorms is that you get to socialize, make friends, network (SCAD favorite word), with other students with different majors…

    the food on both the atlanta and savannah campuses are great. if you want to get a taste of what food they provide go to the scad days they give you and your family vouchers for lunch. the food is diverse enough that they offer vegiterian/vegan options, home cooked meal, breakfast for lunch and so on.

    The dining is a bit iffy and if sometimes amazing and sometimes not my favorite, but I will admit that it is nice just to walk across the street to the cafeteria when you are feeling hungry. There are also great alternate dining options other than the cafeteria!

    There could definitely be some improvements, the food is usually either hit or miss. The good thing about food at SCAD is that you at least have different options and places to eat at rather than just one dining hall.

    The dining halls are amatively better than an average school lunch, served in a grimy cafeteria. They take their time and allow student to eat in either a choosing of buffet style, take out, or traditional dinning. However, the only flaw to this, is the lines of disruption that sometimes make one not one to eat.

    Meh. It's good the first two week and on SCAD days, but it does get old after a while. I've had some excellent meals where I've gone back for this, and I've had some meals where I had to spit out my food. It's a toss up at the Hive. However, JO's is awesome! Highly recommend eating there. Out and about in Savannah, there are some excellent dining opportunities, like with Paula Deen's restaurant and Leopold's.

    Excellent food! The cooks always have something great whipped up for the day, and the menu changes regularly. There are some steady menu items such as pizza and pasta, but there is always a variety of healthy and delicious food choices. Plenty of fruit/veggies, salads, and sandwiches/wraps for students on-the-go and more hearty meals for students who have time to sit down and eat. All of the dining halls are set up buffet style, so a student can get as much food as they want, and even to-go if they need it to.

    I've read mixed things about dining. Some say that there aren't many healthy food options, which is important to me, while others say that there are an incredible array of options, which would be amazing on a campus. I believe there are three cafe areas, maybe four, and each has their own charm. Looking forward to picking my favorite!

    there is no greek life at savannah college of art and design. which is great for students who just wanted to be apart of the arts. scad does offer clubs- if you want to create a club all you have to get are a group of students and a prof.

    As unfortunate as it sounds, Greek life is nonexistent at SCAD. Aside from those that may have an affiliation either through relatives, the only known way to become a part of any form of Greek Life, is to join one of an outside campus.

    There is no Greek life, which I love. SCAD is what it is because it doesn't have that and many students dislike the idea of Greek like. If you want Greek life, SCAD is not the school for you.
