3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's hard for the administration to be in charge of safety throughout the campus, seeing as though our campus is center city Philadelphia. They try their hardest to have plans, advice and guards to protect students while walking around the city, but it is not a regular college campus. I have to cross S. Broad Street multiple times a day to get to different campus buildings.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Huge variety of courses in the Arts!! The teachers are all hardworking and care about the students at the school. I feel like i have learned so so so much in just a year. The upperclassmen are inspirational and talented. I look up to the staff and the upperclassmen and the talented people in my class as well. My experience here has been beyond amazing. This is the school I was meant to be at and I wouldn't change my decision for anything.

Overall Experience: The value of the degree is important, but networking is very important. For these careers networking is mostly everything. This school brings many great faculty as well as guest artists and speakers to increase networking for the students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school gives me everything I wanted, needed and more to be a well rounded artist. I came to this school to become a better dancer by the time I graduate, but I never realized that in only one year of attending this school, I have a deeper understanding and education for art in general. In only one year I have learned that it is not enough to just be a talented dancer. Anyone can learn to move their body in certain ways, and anyone can train their bodies to perform with grace and athleticism. I have realized that in order to be a true artist, I have to be a true person. I have to be educated about the world around me and I have to have strong and smart views on current relevant topics. I have to understand other art around me in order to be a well rounded artist. I feel as thought this school has the tools and the environment to create and guide well rounded and credible artists.

I have never felt so supported by fellow classmates, upperclassmen and teachers in my educational experience so far. The first time the freshman class ever performed as a whole was during dress rehearsal for the spring POD performances. The upperclassmen in the audience were truly our biggest fans. They showed us constant support and appreciation. When we finished the piece and the curtain came down, the small amount of upperclassmen in the audience literally went crazy for us. They did the same on the first night of the show when we came up to the balcony seats during intermission after we were on stage. These two moments have stuck to me as a strong support and appreciation for dance. There is a constant competition in what we do, and in most environments dance doesn't have an immense amount of support. This department and program at the University of the Arts is made up of a unique and supportive group of educated and skillful artists and mentors who 100% believe in each and every student they have. It truly shows through the amount of hard work and hours they put towards students.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I love my experience with each of my courses thus far. The professors are great and very helpful. It actually surprised me how helpful they were. One thing I recommend to all students is to have great communication skills. Any time that I have ever needed assistance with something, my teachers were very caring and I used that encouragement to do great. I love the diversity of the curriculum. The requirement of extra curricular activities were my favorite because it allows students to possibly discover a hidden talent. There is always an average amount of students in each course.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The career prospects at Uarts are one of my favorite qualities about the school. I am an acting major and I love that I am trained to do so many different aspects of my craft other than performing. The work study program allows students to work the box office, usher for shows, participate in office work, etc. Also, in the acting department you can study other areas such as tech crew, lighting, sound, etc. There is so much to be trained in that I feel that if I wanted different jobs outside of acting, I will have enough experience to do so.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: My college experience so far has been glorious. I am very grateful to be there after having such a difficult time getting there. My favorite experience so far has to be getting the opportunity to take as many different classes that I do. I love to act and dance and The University of the Arts has provided me with the time to dedicate myself to both fields. My school is unique because when you think of college when you see it on television or in films, UArts is the complete opposite. Uarts has redefined my idea of what college is. I feel as if I'm in a magical place with wonderful abilities and I get to express myself all day long using those abilities. My school makes me feel like a superhero. I would choose this university over and over again because I always think about why I wanted to attend others schools. Then when I compare those desires to my experience here, I feel blessed to attend a university that is like no other.

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.
