The School of Advertising Art has once again been included in a roster of the country’s most prestigious graphic design colleges. Graphic Design USA Magazine chose the colleges based on the success level of the program and annual recognition of award-winning student work.

The March/April issue of Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) magazine highlights the country’s Top U.S. Design Schools. SAA is included on the list with other well-known colleges such as Yale University, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Pratt Institute, and UCLA Design Media Arts.

Since 2010, GDUSA magazine has also included SAA students on their annual “Students to Watch” list. This year three SAA students were chosen. Caleb Ritter (Highland Medina Co. CC), Jake Rhinehart (Waynesville), and Megan Miller (Wayne / MVCTC) were included on the respected list of top design students.

Founded in 1983, SAA has increased its enrollment by 52% since 2012. Due to the enrollment increase and projected enrollment of 200 students this fall, the college is planning a significant expansion of the campus.

SAA delivers a focused curriculum that provides students with the training and skills needed to succeed as professional graphic and web designers and photographers. SAA graduates work with top brands such as Nike, Apple, Victoria’s Secret, Pandora, musician will.i.am, and Journeys.
