  • The dorms are awesome. They are a great way to make new friends and really feel like a big UArts community. School spirit is at its finest in this area.…

  • Dorms are only guaranteed for incoming freshmen; once you become an upperclassman you either have to find an apartment, which is what most people do, or enter the housing lottery.…

    I was a sophomore when they implemented the dining hall services at UArts. To be honest I am not a big fan of their dining experience. I personally enjoy food shopping in the city, making my own food and eating at local eateries around the city.

    The food was good for the first month, but gets really repetitive and gets really boring. But food is food, and it is better than nothing. I suggest you to not get a meal plan, simply because the food tastes really plain.

    The food is pretty gourmet most of the time. You can never be hungry food is always there. Buy your own food sometimes but use the dining hall to save money. Lunch and breakfast are the bedtimes to eat in there. Late night when your hungry hit up Mangia the late night dining hall.

    The food isn't of bad quality, and they usually have some different options, but sometimes it can get a bit repetitive. The dining staff are all extremely friendly and kind though.

    The Terra Dining Hall is a nightmare. It is hard to be healthy. There is a vegan/vegetarian section, but it is confusing and annoying. There is a salad bar but there are very few options. Breakfast is good. It is hard to be healthy, and usually they just make burgers. Students have petitioned, and there has been some improvement. Then again, the dining hall is brand new so I assume that it will improve.

    Outside of the university itself, the wonderful city of Philadelphia provides many options for dining and exploring unique and diverse cultures.

    Nonexistent. But there is Alpha Psi Omega, a theatre honor society, for any theatre major wanting to have a little taste of semi-greek life.
