5 College Senior

Academics: I don't know about the other departments on campus, but this department has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.

4 College Senior

Academics: I have some very good teachers this year. Very rarely are there any that don't challenge me enough. It's not too hard, but it's definitely very challenging: great for developing skills and understanding a lot more than when you entered.

4 College Senior

Academics: UNCA has a variety of academics and wonderful professors.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Most professors know your name. They also all have office hours so you can drop by and talk to them.

5 College Junior

Academics: It is fantastic to be a drama major. It is very fun.
