This school really pushes you to create pieces of work that you can be proud of. The professors are amazing and really help you become the best artist you can be. In SCAD, you have to work hard in order to get where you want to be. It is really up to the students to take the professors critiques and to become a better artist. SCAD is a great school because they give you the tools you need in order to make your work better.
