  • 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…

    Their cafeteria is through Bon Apetite so there is a lot of food variety and it's all very authentic and classy. They have a salad section, grill section, today's choice section, vegetarian section, desserts, cereal, deli, etc.

    My parents and I ate at the Byte Café which we were told was the best place to eat, and they were right. Tons of options and restaurant quality and atmosphere.

    Not outstanding, but in comparison to most college dorm mess halls, SCAD provides lots of different choices and a decent quality.

    The food is pretty good. At the Hive, it's set up like a buffet with different types of food at each station, so you can probably find food you want to eat. The only downside is if you go before they have any food out at certain times. Such as how breakfast starts at different times during the school week and weekend.

    The food in the dining halls is fresh and in some cases you can see the food being prepared. There are lots of options to choose from and there are even coffee bars.

    In Turner House there is a convenience store that has convenient hours on the weekdays. There's also a cafe that would be a good thing if the staff there were friendlier and they stocked up on supplies more often. Finally there's a deli on the second floor. Many many freshmen have discovered it and it gets packed. The cafeteria at the next dorm house over is criticized by freshmen all the time. However, they serve a good variety of delicious food you just have to know what to put on your plate and not eat the same thing every day. The cafeteria is also the best option for vegetarians, like me, or vegans.

    It is not very good for all the money you spend, also the dining ware is not all that clean and the people who work there just don't seem to care.

    Food and Dining at SCAD is pretty good, there are several buffet style cafe's that require swipes from a meal plan, and there are also different shops that carry Starbucks, and snacks. In conjunction to the cafe's there are diners, a sub shop and an Asian restaurant. That is all by the more heavily populated dorms. Each one of these places take Meal Plan swipes, SCAD Cash, and Dining Dollars, besides the normal cans or credit card options. SCAD Cash is an account made with SCAD that either you or your parents load money on SCAD Cash is accepted at multiple restaurants, shops and gas stations throughout Savannah. However dining dollars are an allotted amount of money covered by the meal plan that is exclusively taken at on campus locations.

    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.

    Unfortunately there is no Greek Life at SCAD but if you wanted to create a Greek Life group that is definitely a possibility.
