SCAD adds athletics to its artistic arsenal

Apologies for the headline alliteration, but the Atlanta campus of SCAD announced today that they have officially been accepted into the NAIA—basically the lowest level of collegiate athletics outside of club sports.

Part of the statement released by the school earlier today:


The Savannah College of Art and Design is proud to announce it has been accepted into the membership of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). SCAD Atlanta joins the 291 other member colleges and universities that compete in the NAIA — a consortium that promotes competitive athletics, academic excellence and character values simultaneously.

During Fall 2010, SCAD Atlanta joined SCAD Savannah’s award-winning teams in competing at the intercollegiate level in men’s and women’s cross country, golf and tennis. The program, initiated as a presidential directive, has the full support of the administrative leadership at SCAD locations in Savannah and Atlanta.

The Savannah campus is already a member of the NAIA and will continue to support its own student-artist-athletes in the classroom or in the art studio or on the playing field as well as their neighbors to the Northwest.

This announcement comes less than two weeks after SCAD Atlanta made its intentions to field collegiate athletics public.
