The Savannah College of Art and Design is a private university founded by Paula Wallace in 1978. It is a professional art school with two locations in Georgia, one in Hong Kong, and a study abroad location in Lacoste, France. According to The Red Dot Design Rankings, the university is the #2 best design school in the Americas and Europe. Digital Communication, Animation, and Illustration are among the top majors at SCAD.
The facilities are fantastic and abundant, the professors are always willing to help but give you enough freedom to roam on your own, and the college gives students all the benefits of a college campus in a city without an overwhelming city feeling. The city community welcomes students to reach their goals and to try new things, including local cuisine and night life. The food is great, the resources are amazing, the community is welcoming, and it makes moving away from home a little easier with how many services there are that are available to students.

SCAD is such an artistic and focused community to be in. As a student I am constantly surrounded by inspiration from my fellow classmates, my professors and my environment. It is a wonderful school for students who are focused about their particular field and are determined to find jobs after college.
