Posted October 14, 2014 by Michael Fink
There’s good news for fashion students. The fashion industry, like many others sectors, is starting to dust off the recession.

SecureCampus: a new level of safety

By Chris Smith
Posted September 18, 2014 by Chris Smith
SCAD is adding another tool to our public safety strategy when we launch the SecureCampus network, a gunfire detection system. SecureCampus will cover a two-square-mile area in downtown Savannah, Georgia, with an array of sensors  — exterior and interior — that identifies the specific audio frequency created only by gunfire. John Buckovich, director of security for the SCAD Department of Public Safety, says this new tool can give the entire SCAD community more certainty in their safety.

Posted August 25, 2014 by Chris Smith
She was following her dream. She “worked her butt off for it.” Then she was told she didn’t make the cut. When junior Lindsay Dyer (B.F.A. advertising) came to the Savannah College of Art and Design it was because it was one of the few schools that offered a bachelor’s degree in advertising and a collegiate equestrian program. But pursuing both didn’t come easy.

By Travis Walters
Posted August 21, 2014 by Travis Walters
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is the highest grossing film of the summer. So far. “Guardians of the Galaxy” is quickly catching up, and may overtake Transformers’s $243 million domestic haul. The defining characteristics of both films are the blend of live action with entirely animated characters and the many people it takes to make that happen.

Posted August 11, 2014 by Chris Smith
Illegal ivory poaching and vast deforestation has plunged the population of Asian elephants to dangerous lows. Roughly 50,000 of their kind are left in the world, according to several international conservation reports. The outlook on their long-term survival is grim, with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature placing them on the endangered Red List and some predicting the species will be extinct in the wild as soon as 2050.
