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.

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

Campus Housing: Me and my roommate had a great experience in our room. It has plenty of space, kitchen bathroom and enormous storage space (closet drawers desks, ect.).

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.

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.

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.

5 College Freshman

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!
