First off, I will say that I am a writing major here at SCAD. I know, strange to be attending an "art" school yet taking a class that is not visual arts oriented. However, I will say that I find all the professors I have encountered in the writing as well as liberal arts departments extremely intelligent, kind and helpful. I'm not the greatest at visual arts—but I do have a liking for them more than the "average" student—therefore I got along in my foundations classes quite well. I am also a painting minor, but I haven't explored that very far yet.

My one large complaint concerning SCAD is my fellow students. Expect to meet a lot of people very concerned with appearances, clothes, fashion, and attitude. Most have adopted the "aloof" approach to socialization. It is not popular to be kind here, or to exhibit any kind of school-spirit or camaraderie. I've made one close friend from a class, and one from my first year in the dorms. Everyone else I've met has been either way too into drugs and partying to be friends with long term, or they have been simply too into themselves to become close to. I wish I could say kind people go to this school who are interested in making friends, but instead all I can say is SCAD is making me cold-hearted and bitter. This has resulted in ME getting an aloof attitude toward socialization!

Anyway, I love my major, I adore my professors, and I think it's really a great fit for me—but only academically.

responseHi there I'm a perspective student to SCAD, E-learning, Sequential art I just wanted to say I'm sorry about your current experience. But stay strong ok, I've read countless comments where as its really hard to socialize with school-mates because their self observed and vain, if anything try making friends differently and don't give up. Wishing you luck dear. And continue to stay strong in your studies.
