Sofia Marchese ’23 (Musical Theater)


Theater - Musical Theater (BFA)

Why did you decide to become a FYG?
I decided to become a FYG because of how welcome and loved my FYGs made me feel at orientation last year! I want to be able to make all the new students feel as accepted and at home as I felt.

What's your favorite thing about UArts?
My favorite thing about UArts is our incredibly supportive school community! Our school is full of artists who support each other's work and inspire each other to get out of their comfort zone to create new forms of artistry. 

What makes you excited about New Student Orientation?
I am so excited to meet all the new faces of our school! I can't wait to show everyone around our campus—beautiful Center City Philadelphia!

What advice would you give to new students before they get to campus for their first semester at UArts?
Take everything one step at a time; try not to stress out too much about all the change that is about to happen, instead, try to embrace it! Enjoy the ride and know that there are people who already have your back!
