    • SCAD homepage - don't tease me like that!

      I just landed on the SCAD homepage, after reading a discussion thread that said one way designers can pursue a better seat at the table is through experience and accreditation. I've been toying with going to SCAD. And so I go to your site one more time to see if this is something I should pursue, and I see this gorgeous climbing photo.

      I don't have enough time for climbing in my life. I go three times a week, but it's not enough - it's mostly indoors. It makes me a better problem-solver. It gives me the calm mind I…

          • Swarm not represented here

            Could we add a link under Savannah to the Summer Swarm information? This page should naturally lead you there.

            Thanks,

              • Search should yield better results

                The previous site yielded better search results. If I search for ESL or Language Studio, many student profiles come up. I want to be taken to the area on the site where I can learn more about ESL or Language Studio, and how to apply.

                Also, the ESL only application should be describes somewhere, probably in Other Types of Admission.

                Thank you

                  Yes, yes it should.
                  You’re completely right.
                  We’re actively working to improve upon the search functionality. We wanted to offer faceted search, which is proving trickier than simply embedding a Google search, which is what the old site had.
                  We will improve upon this in the near future, thank you for your patience and your feedback.
                  Best,
                  Ian

                • nice!

                  the course page for graphic design has blue dots behind some of the course names...but there is not a legend on the page telling what the blue dot means. would be nice to add.

                    • The site looks great – wondering about the icon in the web address

                      the different colored boxes on the top and bottom of the SCAD logo make it look like we have a new identity. What about reversing the SCAD logo on a gray box instead (see attached)?

                        Please provide Atlanta contact information (I just noticed that it's not listed on the Advising page. Thanks!

                          The event for Children's book illustrating is repeating every day. It is not supposed to do that. I know, b/c I designed it. ;-)

                          • It's classy but could use some spice.

                            I enjoy how well organized it is. However, this is a creative college and the web design is well, simple. Think interactive page transitions, colorful accents and other things of that nature.

                              Looks awesome! Navigation is easy to follow and I get exactly what I am looking for, where I expect it to be... one thing though, the site map at the bottom of the page seems like its in the wrong position... maybe double check its alignment..

                              • The site is lovely. Nice work! I have a suggestion regarding the admission calendar.

                                I have concerns that when you select "visit" on the left it takes you to a calendar with dots above only certain days. I am afraid some guests will assume those are the only days they can visit. When you then select "admission calendar," it lists all upcoming admission events with the exception of our dialy tours. While I know it doesn't make any sense to list tours since we have them every day, would it instead be possible to put a note at the top before the events are listed? The note could serve as a reminder (or indicator)…

                                    • PIxelated background image - not a cleaner design

                                      would be better to have a slideshow, especially to display current students work, otherwise would suggest a new image as this one is overused and isn't even a good display of the work that is done here.
                                      I would suggest an overall color scheme, such as the one found in the MoA with its use of gray and cyan. Why are some of the subheader's squares red, this could be fixed with an overall color scheme.
                                      There's just as much non-utilized white space as the current site.

                                      • Color block dots don't match legend/Program page too busy

                                        The programs page is extremely difficult to follow. It's just a long list with busy location dots and the location legend doesn't even have the same color blocked dots. I am very familiar with these programs and associated locations and even I got lost.

                                          Thank you for your feedback, Erin.
                                          Could you let us know what you mean when you say the location legend doesn’t have the same color blocked dots?
                                          We do know that the location filter on the left should be static (or rather stay in place while you scroll down the page,) which would make it easier to navigate.
                                          Also we will gray out dots when they’re not applicable when a location is selected.
                                          Thank you for taking the time to review the site.
                                          Your feedback certainly is valuable to us.
                                          Best,
                                          Ian

                                          With most colleges there is a link to the library website under the "Academics" tab.

                                          Also, I think the SCAD logo should be more prominent
