Rachel Orji ’23 (Dance)


Dance (BFA)

Why did you decide to become a FYG?
I figured if I have experience at a school and can help others navigate through it, why not share my knowledge? I also love meeting new people and look forward to welcoming others to the UArts community!

What's your favorite thing about UArts? 
My favorite thing about UArts is the sense of community. Our campus is spread throughout Center City but we still make the effort to connect with others at events or even on the sidewalk between classes!

What makes you excited about New Student Orientation?
I experienced my own Orientation last year and had so much fun learning about my school through fun activities. I made lasting friendships and know how important it was for me, so I look forward to making it special for others!

What advice would you give to new students before they get to campus for their first semester at UArts?
Make the most of all the resources the school has! These people are here to help you and want to help you—take advantage of that.
