4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The local food is pretty delicious lots of awesome coffee spots, thai, mexican, and the BEST Mediterranean place I've ever eaten at.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: They spoke to me on a real person to person level that made me feel extremely comfortable in my audition/interview. They ask a lot though, 3 monologues (2 modern contrasting and 1 classical) + 16 bars.

5 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: People have fun thats for sure. I dont go to the club or anything like that though so I wouldnt know

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Winston-Salem. Tons of parks, public art and local restaurants/businesses.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: We only have 1 cafeteria and they keep basically the same meals in rotation all year. Its boring and gross, especially if you enjoy healthier options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Our dorms are not great at all but we have on campus apartments that are pretty cozy best option s to move off campus once your a Junior, the rent in winston is a lit more reasonable then the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe, on campus and in the surrounding area. We have more police with more weapons and security then necessary.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very diverse campus, I was surprised at the large population of international students we have. In terms of personalities it is an arts school, so....a wide variety.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My arts courses in the drama department are amazing, there are registration issues you have to deal with for academic placement but those courses are great as well. The variety of courses you can choose from academically is pretty wide and creative.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every department on campus has major connections to the professional industry and the great teachers of those fields. Our dance and design + production schools for example are a huge feeder for Cirque Du Soleil.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is not strict.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: UNCSA is very diverse in religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and ethnicities. I promise, there are people at UNCSA that will make you feel right at home.

Majors: You can't get any better theater experience than at UNCSA. Period. We have connections with Broadway, Cirque de Soleil, and other large companies who love to work with our students, and credit it to the amazing training we come out of this school with.

Majors: In every program, no matter what department or major, you'll have access to training from some of the most amazing professionals in the business. UNCSA plans wonderful experiences for the students where professionals will come to the school and do workshops, seminars, and work with you one-on-one and give you tips and pointers - not to mention making connections that will help you gain a summer internship and (eventually) have a job waiting for you after graduation!

Campus Housing: Some of the dorm halls still need renovating, but UNCSA is working on them, and some of them have already been renovated. The on-campus Bailey Apartments are really nice, but kind of small (4 people to an apartment), and the off-campus Center Stage apartments are gorgeous (2 people per apartment with washer-dryers included)!

Scholarships: I was so worried Financial Aid was going to be terrible, I had heard so many horror stories from others saying that it was so troublesome. Luckily, Financial Aid went wonderfully for me. UNCSA entered me into Financial Aid Scholarships I didn't even know about, and found me nearly $15,000 worth of free money for school. I only ended up paying about $2,000 out of pocket. I was so relieved!

Overall Experience: UNCSA is a place where people are very accepting and friendly. It's a community of artists that band together for the bigger picture - our productions. The people are hilarious, very outgoing, very random (maybe even a little crazy), but they're some of the most amazing people you could meet. I can say that I know almost everyone on campus, and even if some of them aren't the best of friends with me, they're always very courteous and friendly.

Off-Campus Dining: During the day, you can access anything from Mellow Mushroom pizza, Kings Crabshack, Asian food, Cafes, Bistros, etc. However, late-night options usually include your choice of iHop (24/7), Cookout (open until ~4am), Dominos Pizza (Delivers until 2am), and Taco Bell (varies).

Weather: Winston Salem has it's ups and downs with the weather. The sun is absolutely wonderful, but occasionally you'll wake up to a monsoon of rain -- bring rain boots and a strong umbrella.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: People in Winston Salem are very friendly towards our students. We often walk from the campus to the Washington Perk or downtown towards Camino (both are very tasty coffee shops), and it's always a wonderful experience. Many food establishments and cafes are within walking distance from the campus.
