Savannah is full of fun activities for SCAD students to explore between studies. However, given the pandemic and the sheer number of options, many students only find out about all the possibilities available to them when it is too late. This curated list covers a variety of interests, locations and themes. The only common thread is their affordability for the average student on a budget. Below are the times, fares and websites for each of the 1 excursions mentioned in the live video on the District YouTube channel.
