3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I am not fond of the campus dining. I am a relatively picky eater and like to cook my own food. I also eat very healthy and like options that are more vegetarian.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: UNCSA is an all arts school so there are no sports.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There is wifi offered throughout the campus. There are also many labs to work in and many printers to use.

Off-Campus Dining: Winston-Salem offers the best food in the country! I have never been so impressed by the variety of restaurants and the quality of the food served.

Parking: This school does not have a good amount of parking. The only parking lot that is available to students is extremely far and is most of the time not worth the walk.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UNCSA has a very low crime rate. This campus is one of the safest.

Academics: UNCSA has a small pool of classes to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Academics: UNCSA offers many literature classes. This school really likes to focus on creativity, and artistry.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is very high. UNCSA has its police force riding around campus 24-7. This school has extremely high expectations of its students and expects us to be on time, and ALWAYS in class.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Being that UNCSA is an all arts school the type of students that it attracts are not of the typical college crowd.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in North Carolina is absolutely beautiful! Although we receive some snow in the winter I absolutely love the breezy and sunny weather we have!

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus living options for students downtown and around the city. There are many apartments, townhouses, and regular houses available.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I am unaware of the night life that happens on the UNCSA campus or off campus.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: UNCSA offers campus transportation to students who do and do not have their own transpiration. UNCSA schedules weekly trips to target, Walmart, Hanes Mall, and many more places in Winston-Salem.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: UNCSA was the first arts school created in the U.S. As a result of this, it is in many ways, old. Although this school has beautiful studios, it could use some work!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: This school does not offer the typical college experience. The hours that are expected from us students are in many ways exhausting and tiresome. UNCSA has a high expectation from its students so they believe that it is important to stay focussed and always remain working. This school functions like a conservatory rather than a regular university.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of North Carolina School of the Arts is a school that is dedicated to the prosperity of its students. This school has the highest percent of graduates working straight out of college, doing what they love. UNCSA is a school that not only focusses on talent and skill, but also academic integrity, artistry, and well-being. This school is truly the best in the nation.

Transportation: You'd better find a friend with a car, or be prepared to wait a half hour for a very expensive cab.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Very focused majors and departments, the best facilities and faculty you're likely to find. But also extremely demanding- they won't hesitate to assign you more than you think you can possibly handle- although that's part of the fun!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus is great- gates close at night and are only opened with a swipe card, you can't walk or drive for 3 minutes without seeing a cop car. When late night crew shifts get out, there's always an officer parked in the parking lot then and for about an hour afterward in case of stragglers. The area around campus does have a fair amount of break-ins though. Particularly over Christmas break.

Computers: I live off campus, and have never needed my computer when on campus. I can always pick up a wi-fi signal on my phone though.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: If you know you want to be in the arts- you can't find a more focused major. For example, most schools have a degree in technical theatre/design, or just theatre with an emphasis on technical theatre/design. If you do find a school that has majors in more specific things, it's most likely going to be set design, lighting design and costume design. We have a whole school of Design and Production, and majors as specific as props, scene painting, or wigs and make-up. We also have the only MFA program for scenic art in the country.
