Parents and Families Information

The transition to college life is a big step, not only for you, but also your family. UArts considers family members to be partners in your growth in becoming an adult and full-fledged artist. With that in mind, the University will be offering opportunities for families to attend their own orientation and learn firsthand about the University.
