4 College Student

Health & Safety: We talk about these issues openly.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: They really care about you, and have understood if I have had to miss class for work. They understand (for the most part) that you have a life outside the university.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The theatre is not an easy business, it's always changing and nothing is guaranteed. Being new to the area, its hard to know what steps to take to get where I need to be.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Campus living is convenient and comfortable. The RA's and Student Life staff work hard to create a space, fun environment where students can feel at home.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The University of the Arts is a very special place, where artists can engage in conversation about who they are and what is going on in their world without judgement. The teachers care about their field and care about sharing their passions with their students. While not all of the students commit to assignments, they are all creatively minded.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I mean, its only so good. a lot of the lib arts professors were my absolute favorites.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Don't live on campus if you can help it, hate the obligatory meal plan and the RA's take their job too seriously, and i say this as someone who lived on campus for two years.

1 College Senior

Athletics: we don't have any sports

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's ok, probably wouldn't do it again

2 College Sophomore

Academics: There are very little choices for classes, students don't care about the liberal arts classes.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: UArts is a very diverse and accepting school I would say.

Drug Safety: Because most students live off campus, it's easy to partake in drug use before or after class and go to class under the influence.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The University of the arts is a Philadelphia college. Philadelphia is one of the most dangerous cites on the east coast so you do have to be a little cautious especially walking where very few people go or alone at night. I always make sure my phone is on and charged, walking with a group, and have my on hand to use as a weapon for protection. My residence hall has security cameras or every floor and has an electronic door so only students can get in. There have been a few incidents since i came here but don't feel threatened or unsafe in the least. Philly is pretty awesome if you get to know it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: some professors act just like the typical professors but most of mine are pretty chill. sometimes they are hard to contact but are overall pretty helpful. each class has different styles and different vibes to them. One might be really loud and fun and others make you think "why did i ever take this course"? but there is an unlimited amount of courses one could take and the class sizes range from small to large.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are thousands of internships and jobs that the school provides for students. The administrators and professors host galleries to display artworks and also puts in a good word for companies that my need artists. It is very easy to promote work and get job opportunities here.

Campus Housing: So I feel like my dorm is the best dorm ever and its only my first year. I don't even refer my dorm as a dorm. It's honestly an apartment. That's how big and spacious it is! The housing process only took a few seconds and the cost of lining is affordable and worth it. The only thing about my residence hall is that its the furthest away from terra hall so the walk may take up to ten minutes so i have to leave a little earlier if i wanna get breakfast.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience is absolutely amazing. I've met new and interesting people, my classes are fun to be in and also expose to other things aside from my intended major, and you gotta love the college parties and events! Sure college is a big responsibility whether its balancing money, study time, or sleep. But in the end it will all be worth it!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If you feel unsafe whatsoever campus security can escort you across campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are usually very interesting and explore mediums.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are spacious and all have a bathroom and at least a kitchenette, some have full kitchens with stoves/ovens.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a small school so there are always a lot of familiar faces but a huge variety of talents, mostly everyone is very supportive and creative.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love that the dorms are in the middle of the city.

Athletics: It's an art school. There's relatively low interest in team sports, but the intramurals seem to address that interest appropriately.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While there are glaring faults, I think the university does a good job addressing students' needs and challenging students at a time when the university seems to be evolving.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Uarts really provides a safe environment for all the students and isn't really a concern despite being in an urban background of PHILADELPHIA. There is a safety and prevention courses that is mandatory for students to take in the beginning of their semester which really shows how much Uarts cares about preventing wrong thing from happening.
