What Students Are Saying

Don't be afraid of the price tag, apply and go for financial aid. It is a great school to attend. The programs are amazing and challenging.
Brittney from Warminster, PA
My advice would be to really be dedicated to whatever you choose. There are those few students who show no care at all towards their education which they are paying money for. Uarts is such a great learning opportunity that should not be wasted. Also talk with your financial aid councilor if you need financial help. Mine helped me with getting through first semester, and they are all really helpful.
Ixchel from Fredericksburg, VA
Come with an open mind and a great attitude. Prepare to learn how little you actually know and to be inspired by everyone from the drum majors to the photography majors.
Alexa from Houston, TX
be prepared for a lot of homework depending on your major... if your a CAD or a Music Student expect a lot of homework, if your a dancer expect a lot of practice sessions.
RACHEL from Newark Valley, NY
Get involved, get out and meet everyone. Connections are important. Go to class, that's where you learn and grow. And most importantly, be yourself! Your art is unique so don't give up.
Rachel from Trenton, NJ
Apply and audition early.
Expect a challenge as well as a unique learning and performing environment.
