The Savannah College of Art and Design is making more headlines as it nears its 40th year.

President Paula Wallace tells the Savannah, GA NBC television affiliate the world comes to SCAD when they want their students to learn design. "Countries that seek this knowledge then come to SCAD and they send their students here to learn from the best."

Wallace says design curriculum is a huge part of what they do, and it’s catching the eye of big business. "SCAD is bringing Fortune 100 companies like Google and Microsoft to Georgia specifically for the intellectual innovations that they can accomplish with our students at SCAD... Fisher-Price... Many different companies come to collaborate with SCAD as almost a think tank."

SCAD was founded in 1978. It also has campuses in Atlanta, Hong Kong and France.

There is an IDSA Student Chapter at SCAD. The faculty advisor is John McCabe, IDSA.
