    My experience here is like nothing I could have imagined. Being a dancer here is such a great privilege. All the teachers here are so helpful and resourceful. They are currently working in their field of art and this makes them a good tool for students. There is such a mix of students from all over America and the globe. The city is a great place for art students to live and be creative. Philadelphia offers a lot of opportunities for Uarts students to show their work.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    You definitely have to like living in an urban environment if you attend UArts. It's in the middle of Philly without a typical college campus.

    its an easy atmosphere to work in, its usually easy to get along well with your classmates! i transferred in from another school and didnt know anyone, but it was easy to make friends in my major and other majors too! and your free to take classes that arent your major, for example if you draw you can take a yoga or karate class!
