3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The buildings have an appealing artistic quality to them but the classrooms are usually too small to accommodate ally he students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have any "Greek life" at my campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't heard about anyone getting raped or anything like that on campus, but there have been incidents where students have been mugged or bothered by people of the city outside their dorms or on a street nearby.

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness isn't that strict at all. The only thing the guards are strict about is showing your id card at all times when entering a campus building.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's great because of how spacious some of the dorms are in the housing buildings. They aren't the nicest or cleanest but the are decent and better than more dorm buildings.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had a great experience with the school. It's a great school to focus on the arts and be surrounded by other artists in varying fields. It gives you good experiences and connections. You get out of it what you put in. UArts is awesome if you dedicate yourself and get out there.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: CAMD CORE studies suck. It's not too hard though, just tedious. I don't know much about the CPA (performing arts) classes. But in the CAMD program (visual arts) things are cool. You get what you put in. You could get away with slacking off, but what good is that doing you? Some classes are tougher than others, depends on the professors. Overall, it's enjoyable and you do actually learn. Illustration program is the s***.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: General art school curric. Liberal arts requirements. Mostly art and studio classes, it's good. Workload varies.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Be careful drinking or using drugs in dorms, they're strict and it's easy to get caught. Off-campus, cops only care about noise and complaints. They usually won't bust for underage unless you're obviously obliterated and being obnoxious or rude.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Many students who begin school in Philly, stay in Philly. There are so many colleges in this city which is nice to have access to. It's a thriving city full of art and opportunity, you're smack dab in the middle of all the action which is great for a college student. You're already in the real-world setting. There's a ton to do, a ton to shop for a waste money on, great food, a ton to get involved with. There are festivals and college events and everyone seems to just want to enjoy life. I've have nothing but good experiences with people here.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's like an financial aid program. They do what they can to help you.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: UArts and Philly seems to be an extremely diverse area and it's very accepting. I never saw or experienced much discrimination here. Everyone is unique and the city encourages you to be yourself, it;s great.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Certain majors seem to have better programs than others. I'm impartial to the Illustration program, which I'm in, which is amazing. The teachers are awesome, and it really challenges you and gets you ready for the real world.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It's easy to change majors. Submitting a portfolio or auditioning is standard. Just be yourself and you'll hopefully get in!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: After seeing friends go through the process, I think there's much opportunity to find off-campus housing. The more roommates the better because less rent you have to pay.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Depends what you want, but there's definitely variety.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. The dorms are bigger than most schools because they're apartment-style living. If you don't have an oven in your dorm, you'll still get a mini-fridge and microwave and kitchen with cabinets. There's so much storage space.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In the winter, it's rough walking around. Rainy days can make it hard to transport art from building to building, but you make due. Buy umbrellas and put garbage bags over art projects!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much variety for food around Philly. Almost every kind of food you can imagine at varied price ranges. It's too great of an exposure to food, you'll go broke fast!

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Street parking is hard to find sometimes. Parking in a lot is really expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation is everywhere. The SEPTA subway and buses are pretty cheap and easy to use. Gets you anywhere you need when walking isn't the best option.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Center city and South Philly are both FANTASTIC places to live. Prices are affordable and often times cheaper than a dorm. The school has a website for UARTS students to look at housing, and students online also have facebook pages where we can look for roommates and find openings in apartments/homes.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The school is very helpful with on campus jobs, internships, and networking. The facilities are kept the best they can be, with monitors on duty to make sure students are using equipment properly. There are a ton of student life clubs and activities such as slackline club or dodgeball Wednesdays. There's always a movie night with free food and fun.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Since we're a city school, we don't have things like a gym or big centers. But each dorm has a lounge, the studios are always open, and the underground pool (which is a bit of a secret) is a very cool experience.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone is extremely open, alternative, and just different in general. We're all very liberal people being our age group and what's going on in politics. But other than that everything is accepted and therefore seen.
