UArts Is a pretty great school. I've had a several amazing teachers in the illustration program. The old buildings have a lot of character and are fun to wander around and explore. There's never a shortage of space if you need somewhere quiet to study or draw or nap. The big downside is the lack of a campus and the fact that you'll have to run several blocks between classes on Broad Street if you don't have a lot of flexibility in your schedule. Also, Philly isn't for the feint-hearted and you'll just need to be aware of your surroundings.
Excellent schools with talented, dedicated and caring teachers. Ample opportunity for growth, immersion and first-hand experience.
University of The Arts is a school filled with unsurmountable amounts of student potential and talent. Students are always using the resources given to collaborate and create amazing art to give to the community. Teachers are very passionate about their work but there is a definitely a lack of ethnic representation at the school, specifically African American representation in the staff. We pay an extreme amount of money to go here but I often wonder where the money is going due to the poor conditions of some of our buildings and our dining hall especially. If a little more care and effort was put in to catering towards the students wants and needs and actually listening to our opinion, UArts would be an unstoppable school.
Before coming to UArts, I didn't understand why it was important for me to continue my education if my career interest is performance. Since attending this college, I'm so glad that I chose to continue my education. Aside from gaining amazing performance skills, my view of the arts has been broadened and moulded to help me become not only a performer but involved in discussion about my field and the culture surrounding it. I've learned the importance of strengthening my talent of dance (which is my main focus) and the importance of being active in the arts community. The professors here have helped me widen my scope of thinking in ways that I had not previously known were possible. Since I decided to continue my education, I also discovered through my Liberal Arts classes that I have a passion for social science and other academic areas outside of my major. Many times, this is rare for students in the arts to become interested in academic subjects, but I am fortunate to have learned from professors who have passion for their areas of work and teaching in the same way that I am passionate about dance, and now, learning. I don't believe that I would have the skills to be an effective performer or an be engaged student had I not attended The University of the Arts.

In choosing a college or university the best advice I could possibly give would be to go with your gut instinct. Visit the campus, interact with the student body, spend a night in the dorms. When you find the right college you feel the fit right away. Don't fall into what your peers, teachers, or parents might want of you. In the end, you are the one spending four years of your life there, not them.
The freedom and respect recieved by my teachers and peers which encourages a creative learning environment. Without the boundries of regimented classroom I amencouraged to interpret my teacher's assignments in my own way. Students presents their own creative idea instead of producing the same material an encourage each other's creative process.
Our school is best known for being the only fully accredited university dedicated solely to the study of the arts. There are tons of working and well-known professionals in each field of study that the university offers. Also, the campus is extremely open-minded and diverse, encouraging people from all walks of life.
What makes my school unique is that it is an art school. It is a school that highlights the arts, where most schools highlight sports. It is a place where everyone knowns everyone no matter what major because everyone is there doing what they love, living out their dreams and prepairing for the future.
My school is challenging but very rewarding.
The kind of person who is looking foward to making 100,000 a year coming out of college shouldn't attend my school. THe University of the Arts was build for artists of all fields to build on their respective form of art and passion and make a comfortable living doing it.
The University of the Arts' students are a wide range of different intrests and personalities, in the visual arts program these students can be your stereotypical art kid, average school focused students, and of course the ones that party.
I wish I researched the outside internship opportunities. My fellow students that seemed to do the best post graduation meet great connections through their internships that helped springboard them. As a young, transfer student I did not know to take advantage of these professional resources.
A person with inspiration, drive, creativity, and work-ethic.
There are no meal plans and the cafe that they have closes at 2pm. There are no vending machines. Sometimes it is hard to find food because we are all art students and spend a lot of time in our labs and studios.
The tuiton is quite a lot when we have a lot of stuff that needs replacing or doesn't work properly
Because our school unfortunately doesn't have a student center, there is no sense of community. I think that a student center is crucial in an art university, since many of the art forms that we study require collaboration and I personally as a filmmaker need to know my schoolmates in other different faculties in order to create a good work.
When I brag about my school, I tell people about all the different courses that I can take sch as acting, jewelry making, and photography despite the fact that they are not my area of concentration. I also brag about our different shows in theater, voice and dance that are put on throughout the year as well ast the artsy community that our university is surrounded by.
