What is your overall opinion of this school?

Visiting the campus was a nice experience. I liked how everywhere we went is was explained in detail. I enjoyed seeing some of the students in action, enjoying their art. I saw some people dancing, some playing an instrument, some doing hair and some just walking around enjoying their day on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is the very best for each of it's five majors. If you want to learn how to do what you love correctly, this is the place to go. As a film student, I am 100% confident in my ability to find a job after graduating this school because of the intensity of training and experience the students receive here.

University of North Carolina School of the Arts is an immensely deep and fascinatingly progressive environment. Everyone, including teachers, take conversation and discovery to such a place of creativity that we develop not only great work ethics but full appreciation for our arts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in the high school program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and it has some great things about it! One thing I really enjoy about the school is how amazing the faculty is, for such a small school that is a really surprising aspect. Another thing I enjoy is all the opportunities to go to performances (for free usually). There is also exposure to many different types of art other than your own which is cool too. However, some of the facilities aren't great and the food isn't good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You will adore this place if you love your art. Speaking from the perspective of a film student (because we also have, design and production, dance, drama, and music), this is THE best place to gain experience before venturing out and starting your career. The school of filmmaking is basically its own production company and in your first weeks at school you start making films around campus and on sound stages. You also interview with upperclassmen to get jobs on the third and fourth year thesis films. Only one month into school I was already getting on set experience. Expect to get jobs as a PA, crafty, location scout, grip, or electric. The more rare jobs to get as a first year are 2nd-2nd AD, camera PA and production coordinator. At other schools, students wouldn't even get to think about getting on set or making collaborative films until their second or third year meanwhile at UNCSA your name will be in the credits and your shorts will be screened in our theaters. The community here is positively uplifting and I can't image going anywhere else and getting the experience and education I am getting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

An above average institution in regards to the faculty. The program is new, so the direction / philosophy needs a bit of tweaking to find the best direction it should take for its students' sake. The campus has been cobbled together in a piecemeal fashion; however, the film facilities are more than adequate, especially considering that it's located in a state that has not been friendly to education over recent years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university. The workload is a bit more intense than I was previously used to, but considering it is a conservatory designed to prepare us for the professional world, it is perfectly understandable. We are currently working on getting a graduate level of our student government going, so mroe students will be represented and have a voice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are in love with the arts this is by far one of the best schools you can attend. Everyone around you is just as dedicated to their arts as you are. It's a friendly campus with great professors. There are so many tools to really get in depth with your arts and learn absolutely everything there is about the art style you love and enjoy. The school might not be the regular college experience, and the campus is small, BUT you will be so busy doing what you love that it won't make any difference. Also, it's not like there isn't regular college experiences. There are still plenty of parties, and college activities. If you love the the arts, this IS the school for you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You will change. You will have experinces you never expected. Embrace them but never loose sight of yourself. This new environment will challenge you. Friends will lean on you and you will lean on your friends. These are some of the best people you will ever have the opportunity to come across. You went to film school because you have been passionate about movies ever since you can remember. You're learning about your first love every day here. Learn as much as you can before you have to graduate. Money will be tight, but always be gracious. Never think this will be the best time of your life, there's still a lot of life to live after. This is the first time you've ever had to pay to go to class, so go! Try to not live off noodles and fast food, take care of yourself and eat as healthy as you can. And most importantly, remember to call your parents. They let you go to art school, they love you more than you could ever know.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Passionate artists that want to be around other passionate artists should attend UNCSA. Though the school has it's short-comings, the student body and faculty are what make the school worth being there. The connections and relationships you make can move your career forward and create lasting friendships that will undoubtly be benefitical as you pursue dreams of being a professional in your art. Of course artists will struggle, and the only ones that will fully understand that struggle are fellow artists.
