SCAD OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM

Part of SCAD’s appeal is its unique approach to student life. The university’s diverse programming is full of rewarding extracurricular activities that enhance learning in the classroom and promote additional professional preparation. Programs include industry speakers, alumni panels and corporate visits, as well as social, cultural and professional clubs. This adds up to a well-rounded, truly engaging university experience.
