"I loved attending UArts. It was one of the most important times in my life and college changes everything for me as an artist. The only negative comment I have is that I wish I had more access to scholarships, or that school was somehow not so expensive. I got so much out of it on a personal level but just have never been able to come out of my burden of student loan debt. To any young people out there: please graduate college with as little debt as possible because you cannot enter the world already behind the eight ball. It is not fair."

"The University of the Arts is a great institution depending on the major the student goes for. For the performing arts, it's incredible and it has brought out wonderful performers, some alumni have even danced with Beyonce and worked with other famous performers. However, for the visual arts, it is not as strong as it could be. UArts has some very inspiring faculty, but on the undergrad level sometimes there is not enough attention paid to its students. In the Illustration department I was constantly pushed to have " a style" but at the same time every time I tried to explore and find it, they told me I was all over the place and discouraged me from doing it. We also had to take a typography class that was a total joke and did not teach anyone anything about typography. On the other hand, the printmaking department (I minored in this) was the complete opposite, they encouraged experimentation and learning new techniques, giving me the ability to think outside the box and push myself. Some majors are better than others, but I'm sure that is true for every institution."
