I LOVE UNCSA! Getting to work with some of the best teachers in the country and forming great relationships is part of what makes UNCSA so great. They truly care about your development and well being, and will do anything to help you accomplish your goals. Not to mention the equally talented students that are incredible to collaborate with. The academics are lower than the standards of most colleges, but then again it is an art school so you're there for a specific art.
While some people think going here lessens the typical college experience, I would actually disagree. We get free tickets to performances, movies, concerts, which all add culture and exposure. I have learned so much about other arts, which enrich my own performances and will help benefit my future career.

This is an amazing, diverse campus filled with like-minded artists focused on their respective crafts. It is a true community filled with encouragement, acceptance and drive! The faculty and staff are so supportive of you as both an artist and individual. It felt like home the first time I stepped foot on campus!
Knowledgeable faculty and plenty of resources. While it’s hard work, you won’t find another place quite like it!
