Why did you decide to become a FYG?

I decided to become a FYG because I wanted other new students to feel as welcomed into the UArts community as I did when I first came on campus for Orientation! 

What's your favorite part about the UArts community?

My favorite part of the UArts community is how students of all different majors go out and support each other's art! It is incredible how the community shows up to celebrate everyone's projects and performances.

Why should new students attend New Student Orientation?

New Student Orientation is the best way to get acclimated to campus and life at UArts as a new student! You really get to know your peers and how the campus and city works in a personal and fun way!
