New Student Orientation

UArts Campus

We've designed New Student Orientation (NSO) to help you make a smooth transition into college life and to the University of the Arts in particular. NSO will be a fun-filled and enlightening time for you and your fellow incoming students. At NSO, you'll learn practical skills for being a successful college student-artist, experience first hand Philadelphia sights and sounds, and get to know your new classmates and faculty.
