<< Back to Life @ UArts

Your transition to UArts will be one of the most exciting and thought-provoking times of your life. We have created Orientation for new students around one simple idea—to help you transition so you will be more likely to succeed as a student-artist.

NSO will be a fun-filled and informative time for you and your fellow incoming students. At NSO, you'll learn about the campus resources available that'll help you be a successful student-artist, experience firsthand Philadelphia sights and sounds, and get to know your new classmates and faculty.

The UArts NSO experience is particularly exciting for students thanks to the wisdom and enthusiasm of our student staff. The First Year Guides (FYGs) are a group of our best and brightest upperclassmen who work around the clock to make the NSO experience stress-free, fun and full of useful insider information.
