  • 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 variety of food that SCAD's cafes offer are by no means as good as mom's cooking, however the food is still enjoyable. The meal plans are also fairly priced. For those who prefer to eat out some nights, the main campus is centered in downtown Savannah which contains many excellent restaurants to choose from with a very city-like ambiance.

    The different spaces to eat seem unique.

    For a college our food is pretty good. Bon Appetit is a catering company that supplies all staff and meals to our dining halls. Our options change daily. Local farmers supply a lot of our fresh food. The dining hall hours are convenient with class schedules. We have a variety of different dining halls, the majority are buffet style. We also have a Diner and Asian restaurant- style dining halls. There is an option for everybody.

    compared to most other colleges i've eaten at, scad's food options are pretty good. it's not as good as what mama makes back home, but you won't find her cooking anywhere else, either.

    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.

    For the price you pay, the food should be faaaar better and tastier.

    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.

    SCAD does not feature any Greek life; however, students living off campus have been know to create independent Greek establishments.

    SCAD does not have Greek Life and probably never will. A lot of my friends are involved in Greek Life and I though it would be something I would feel left out of coming to SCAD but, I find that I don't. At SCAD you most likely will not have time for anything like Greek Life, you will be fully involved in the creative atmosphere and you will find that you need nothing else.

    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.
