4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While there's not a huge on-campus security staff, it's in a fairly safe area, and staff is always willing to escort students to where they need to go if they feel unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UArts is in a great area, has a great student body, and mostly great teachers. The campus is not in the best condition (many classrooms are fairly old and run down), but there are great creative facilities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most other students seem to get internships very easily; most staff/teachers are willing to help in obtaining one. As for jobs after graduation, I'm not positive because I don't know very many upperclassmen.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Uarts is a great, if disorganized, school. The majority of the staff is knowledgable and experienced, and the facilities are pretty up to date and well kept (although there needs to be more spaces for recording and production). One major issue is that there is a lack of standardization: most teachers have drastically different policies on grading, attendance, submitting work, etc., and it can lead to a lot of needless confusion.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Being in the middle of a city, most assaults are from perverts outside of the school. When anything happens to a student everyone takes major precaution. There have, however, been many acts of theft on campus from students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most classes have around 30 people. There are classes in just about anything artistic or creative you can think of. Most of the teachers are great and are fair graders.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The job fairs at are school are great opportunities for the students.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is really expensive, so most people end up getting their own apartments by their sophomore or junior year. A lot of the rules are very easily broken.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, I love the teachers in my department but have heard discouraging things about other teachers in other departments. The financial aid counselors are not very helpful. The school food is terrible and very unhealthy- one time they made omelets for like a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: When I tried to reach a counselor, they said they would only speak to students who were "in crisis" which was sad, I had to find a therapist outside of school.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was not happy at UArts. The school took the joy out of my art.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's very hard to know whether or not you will be employed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is pretty good because all dorms are converted apartments but the resident life isn't very lively and rules are easily broken.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no greek life at University of the arts.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are no athletics at University of the Arts.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While University of the Arts provides an interesting creative environment for its students, I was left feeling isolated as there is no sense of student body or community. There are no chances to deviate from one's major and while the professors are amazing, the administration doesn't really care about the well being of its students and many students encounter serious personal issues because of this.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's an okay school with okay teachers. Sometimes you get the really great teachers and most of the time you don't but that doesnt matter when you have really get classmates. The people I have personally met are have made this college experience better.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Love a majority of my main professors. However, the additional required courses are somewhat ridiculous. Often the liberal arts professors think we have minimal workloads for our main classes and pile on tremendous amounts of unnecessary work.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It depends on your major really. It's an art school, so your prospects of get a job are already cut in half on that end. But an animation major might have a 3/5 chance of getting a good job, where a ceramics major has a 1/10 chance.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It's in the city, so it's not a closed campus. There are zero campus security guards roaming around the perimeters. They stay in the dorm buildings. Don't be out by yourself too late at night.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Poor rule enforcement. If your roomates a complete nutter, you're stuck with them. And they don't get any reprisals for even being openly caught breaking the rules.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good school. Most professors are caring and helpful. Some not so much. Like any other school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Nothing bad has happened, and there are people around to help if something does. Security is decent, but anything can happen in the city so fend for yourself and be prepared. Overall safe area, nothing bad has happened but use common sense and be aware.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UArts is a great school with plenty to do, see and learn from. I admire the people there and have had a positive experience where I am continuing to learn and grow as an artist.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Careers and the future are always a topic of conversation, especially later on in your years. It is always talked about, explored, made important. There are many ways to get guidance if you ask. There are many seminars to give you an idea about what other have done with their future and what you can do with yours.
