4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is different at this school. We have a mixture of athletes, hipsters and much more. Everyone is friendly and the social life of this school is great.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Greeley is a big city but doesn't really have much to offer. The mall is fairly small and there are no professional sports team that play near Greeley. The nearest sports venue is Denver.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University of Northern Colorado is a great school. The campus is beautiful and everything is fairly close to one another.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The nightlife in Greeley is ok. Greeley isn't really catered to college students but it is getting there.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I thought it was pretty difficult to find off campus housing that was affordable, safe, and of good quality.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of cheap places/fast food but needs more variety and better student discounts at the more expensive places.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The academics at UNC are great. I was very satisfied with the education I received here. As a psychology major, I enjoyed nearly every class I took. I only had a couple professors I didn't like. Class work was extremely manageable.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol use is pretty well monitored on campus especially in the dorms. Pot use has increased a lot especially since legalization.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: The campus really promotes diversity but is very liberal as far as political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation go.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Weather in Greeley is typically very pleasant. Plenty of sunshine. There's a few days in the winter where the snow/wind/ice makes walking on campus undesirable but it's not common.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I don't know much about athletics at UNC which may say something about their prevalence on the campus. Hardly anyone attends football games. The gym is nice.

Parking: Permits are really expensive and ticketing is very common. The campus isn't very big so having a car on campus isn't a necessity. Finding a parking spot is usually fairly easy if you have a parking pass.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: UNC has a very strict policy about alcohol use in the dorms. Everyone who has a car on campus is very aware of how strict the parking policies are. If you don't have a parking pass, you can expect to have a ticket when you get back to your car even if you're only parked for about 10 minutes.

2 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The on campus bus can be pretty convenient but transportation and night and downtown especially on weekends is either expensive for taxis or unreliable. UNC really needs some form of transportation for areas around campus on weekends.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Nightlife in Greeley isn't great especially in comparison to other schools. If you're looking for a party school, UNC probably isn't the best choice.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't really hang out with the people who do drug i try to stay away from them. I think that the drug scene are seen some time but not very often on campus

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Greeley is a great place to live because there are many different schools in the area and therefore many students. I personally have attended both Aims (during the summer) and the University of Northern Colorado and have enjoyed interacting with many different groups of people. People are overall very friendly in Greeley. I also attend Christ Community church and was surprised in the beginning at how welcoming the community (that are not students) was.

5 College Junior

Weather: I love rain, snow, and sunshine, so living and going to school in Colorado suits me well. I love the trees on campus when it snows and when the leaves on the trees change colors in the fall. I love walking through the snow on cold days on my way to class and just taking in my surroundings.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Getting to class if off campus you normally have to drive. On campus the Bus system works wonders when in a hurry.

2 College Senior

Computers: The wireless around campus sucks, especially in butler Hancock.

4 College Senior

Weather: I love Colorado weather when it wants to be normal at least. But for the most part our days are sunny, and semi warm.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is a variety of personalities and dresses on campus. There are really no two people alike.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: The only place that was really worth something was Whiskey River, but it closed down last year.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The area around campus is fine but some of the outskirts of Greeley are not the safest.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I never really did the party scene so I wouldn't really know.
