What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of The University of the Arts (UARTS) is a dream to attend this school for vocal performance. The departments are wonderful and the ensembles, recitals and concerts are excellent to go to if you are a music fanatic. The teachers are always there if you need help with an assignment or something personal. They do not judge, but they do want to see their students succeed in the future. The classes are great and fun. I would recommend anyone to enroll in this institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are wonderful, but the housing accommodations needs major improvement. We lack air conditioning during the summer sometimes and heat in the winter. The buildings are so old and we pay entirely much for these school. The school is focus on teaching you amazing dance and other skills . But the living conditions are overrated.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I did learn a lot here that I am surprisingly using in my post-grad daily life (Even in jobs that aren't in my field). I did not like the political-ness of the school. Some of the teachers were really cool and helpful others adopted favorites within their major. Then, there is a lack of resources considering the amount we pay in tuition. Most of the students here are terrible people, pretentious, and sociopathic bullies. Myself and a few of my friends got bullied really badly by other students for no reason. Even to the point where a couple of us needed time off from the University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The music school has been lacking proper resources to produce great musicians and is just now getting the funding to acquire those resources so it'll take at least 20 years for the school to finish all their projects and start building a good reputation again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the atmosphere, creativity and freedom. The curriculum is extremely art based no matter the major. Every class you take here is beneficial and will help you craft your profession. It's a family environment. Professors are more like your mentors versus your educators. Friendly student bodies, a ton of activities and events on campus. Guest speakers, performances etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UArts is a great school, but I wish they had more funding. Due to our small size we are always in smaller classes which I love. They are very helpful from an administrative side as well. The teachers are passionate and considerate. They really want you to be as excited as they are and most of the time, we are!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore this school, and feel like I'm getting the best education I can be for my major, which is actually Costume Design. It's right in the middle of center city philadelphia, so it's the prime location within the city. There's a lot of outside connections that the school has available. It's always working to get better, as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The overall climate of The University of the Arts is good. Every professor is either a veteran of their profession or more so, still thriving in the art industry. This gives students an opportunity to network with their professors as well as their peers while learning advanced techniques. The location of the campus is along Broad St. which is one of the busiest streets of Center City Philadelphia, which means there is always shops, and resources accessible, such as open the campuses facility buildings, holding classrooms and studios are open until 2 am for students to utilize as a place to do homework or their own artwork at any time, and art supply stores such as Dick Blick in walking distance. However, I gave the school an overall three-star rating because there are two things I think the school has failed by the students. The first thing that needs revolution is our dining halls. The meals are unhealthy, greasy foods such as hamburgers, cheesesteaks, pasta, and tacos. A lot of the meals from the Terra Dining Hall, have given my friends food poisoning, being undercooked and unhealthy. I have experience pale green scrambled eggs and raw chicken sandwiches in my first semester alone. There is also a lack of the maintenance of the dorms. When I arrived, some of our stove tops did not work. Many of my friends also complained about emergency maintenance not responding for hours to leaks and other things of emergency related problems. Other than these two problems, I enjoy my experience at UARTS and will return to continue my education.
