SecureCampus: a new level of safety

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.

‘Advocate yourself’: Dyer uses social media, tenaciousness to seek dreams

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.

To help save the endangered, SCAD alumni unite at Elephant Parade in Hong Kong

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.

Updated July 3: Arthur is now a Category 1 hurricane positioned east of Savannah, Georgia. The nearest significant impact to land is expected to occur in Charleston, South Carolina, which is beginning to feel the effects of Arthur’s outer bands. Models calculate landfall on July 4 near North Carolina's Outer Banks, however, tropical storm warnings are currently in place 20 miles off the coast of Savannah, and marine warnings and rip current warnings will remain in place at least until tonight. Beachgoers should use extreme caution due to the potential for rip currents.

The future of preservation: Will a new generation take up the cause?

Growing up, I regularly thumbed through family photo albums. This ritual of navigating the worn, yellowing pages of images, as if I were traversing history, was eye opening. The photos contextualized my place in that history. So I panic when I think that my daughter may not experience that same sense of belonging because these physical signposts do not exist for her to explore, at least not in a form that she can touch or feel, except to swipe at them on the screens of the devices behind which they’re trapped.
