hufflepuff-hippie asked: Thanks for the follow! Is Savannah really all that bad of a town? I was accepted to SCAD and thought about going. Always seemed like such a pretty place to me.
It’s a personal preference thing. Plenty of students find Savannah to be the best town to attend college in and there are way more students and majors there. The library at this campus is larger (it’s one of the best things ever), more students and majors means there’s more talks/workshops/activities going on around campus. The other side is most everything closes at 6pm (and doesn’t open on Sundays), you see the same sights and faces repeatedly after a certain point (a car, bike, or the CAT can change this). These might not be down points for you though if you like close-knit communities.
Across the board, most who switch to Atlanta do so for the bigger city feel, more unis around so not just fellow art students, more activities constantly going on around the city. Less students/majors means the campus doesn’t offer as many events, but there are so many art galleries and museums outside of the school that there’s no lack of inspiration. From people watching, if you stick strictly to “campus,” it’s very much a fishbowl in that you quickly recognize every face, yet I have yet to witness the slightest hostility between any students.
For me, sticking to one place is difficult; 3 years left me antsy and drab.
Basically, both campuses are good and the one for you depends on your personality and preferences. Starting at the Savannah campus tends to better serve students because there’s little outside interference so quick immersion into college life is easier. This is a very jumbled response and for that I apologize.
Someone is setting off fireworks outside.
It’s 1:15pm on the 23rd of December what the actual fuck are you celebrating?
My bad it wasn’t a firework, apparently my next door neighbours toaster exploded.
Update: apparently he got a crumpet stuck in it and he decided to use a metal fork to get it out and instead he blew all the fuses in his house, mildly electrocuted himself and blew up a £30 toaster.
One of those things keeping me hesitantly hung up on deciding if I should be excited to go back or not.
A good look/read.
