3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know much about the off-campus housing but I do know that there are a few nice places to choose from but you just have to be careful in those same areas on the weekends because some of the house parties can get out of hands and the cops don't tend to be all that friendly when busting a party that contains weed and alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I think the party scene is okay but it gets old after a while. The one thing I dislike the most is that a lot of the frat parties get shut down within 2 hours of starting and then for the club scene in order to get in for free you have to show up so early (mind you, you're wearing heels) and then by the time you get into the club you're tired. The club scene is really a hassle.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love the fact that a lot of the food off campus is either within walking distance or only 5-10 minutes away from campus taking the bus. It's so nice being able to say you don't want anything to eat on campus so you can just hop on the bus and go wherever your little heart desires.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I think the campus strictness is pretty okay. I do know that students do/will get in trouble for drug use if they are underage, that is of course a no brainer. As for academics the teachers do take that very seriously especially in the science department and they are not afraid to fail you for cheating. On the other hand, I do know that the dorm Moore/Strong is the most strict when it comes to noise violations and they will discipline you if you do not abide by housing rules.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: At the beginning of the year I definitely went to the cafe a lot since I was on a meal plan and I was working on saving my money. Although after a while the food started to become the same and I got tired of it, when spring semester came around the cafe started implementing not only a new layout, but new food options as well. I like the fact that you can take surveys about how to better the cafe and what kind of food options we would like to see more of. Overall, I really enjoy the atmosphere and the variety of foods that my school has to offer.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not have much of a problem with getting financial aid since I followed all of the necessary procedures. The only thing is that financial aid may take a while to upload your scholarships to your package but other than that, it was a smooth process.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I absolutely enjoyed my first year on campus. I was lucky enough to be placed in the upperclassmen dorms called "The Quads" and I have to say it was an amazing experience. As for those incoming freshman who have to choose from freshman dorms I would say the best ones by far are Weil/Winfield and Ragsdale/Mendenhall. Moore/Strong is a nice dorm and all but the RA's are not the best, and you get in trouble for the smallest things. As for Phillip/Hawkins, those dorms are nice as well but they're extremely far. For the housing process, as a graduated senior the process for freshman dorms was kind of like survival of the fittest, but once you are able to choose you housing for upperclassmen dorms, the housing process is such a breeze. I love my school!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I only met one person last semester who was in a sorority, and she seemed to enjoy it and be proud of it. It's difficult to tell who is a member of Greek life and who isn't.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are not a big part of this campus life. You never hear students talking about the games, though one time I heard a bus driver talk about a baseball game.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus but have heard varied reviews on the convenience and cost. There seem to be many options and variety for off campus housing, and the cost is at least cheaper than on-campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a fairly decent variety on Tate Street, which is in convenient walking distance, but the prices aren't very fun. Coffeeology is a great place for both coffee and food.

3 College Junior

Administration: Academic policies seem to be pretty strict, especially those regarding attendance, but the policies effecting or limiting social lives don't seem to be very strictly upheld.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I just usually fill out the fafsa, get the grants that are offered to me, and have to also take out the offered loans. I would hope/imagine that people with worse financial circumstances than me have more grants and aid offered to them through the fafsa. The only tips for getting additional aid would be to apply for departmental scholarships and any others you can find.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Prices are great and most places are all inclusive.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's great parties around especially near A&T.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness isn't too bad at all. The police isn't the most reliable at capturing criminals.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It could be a lot better.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an awesome experience.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: As with any on-campus housing, the cost is too much. Some dorms are in close proximity to classes, but the more pricey apartments are not close enough for convenience, especially if you miss the bus. Amenities are generally taken care of, and RAs dedicate a lot to cultivating a welcoming social atmosphere, even if their efforts are sometimes futile.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: More variety than campus but still gets tiring

4 College Student

Administration: Very nice and helpful people

3 College Student

Scholarships: It's had to get them if you don't get them from the start

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Some old buildings but nice new ones for upperclassmen

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am looking forward to the off campus housing next semester. When my roommate and I went to check out the rom we loved the location and how close it was to the campus. It was such a nice building and the people that were moving out at the time greeted us as if we had been friends for a long time. Such friendly communities, I am ready to move right in.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties were decent, I am not really the partying type. But when my friends and I went out we preferred clubs downtown. Just to meet more people from the city rather than just our school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

While there are always a few students who are critical of the University, you will find that most students are very happy with their experience at UNCG. After all, it isn't like high school—students actually pay to be here. They wouldn't stay at UNCG if they didn't think it was the best place to spend their money and the next four years of their lives.

In the end, that's really what a college experience is all about: life. Sure, you're paying thousands of dollars to further your education, but you will actually end up getting a lot more out of it than that. Living and learning in the UNCG community will enrich your life. You will make friends that will feel like family, and you will keep in touch with them for years to come. You will learn to love Greensboro and all that it offers. Your mind will be broadened, both with things you learn in and outside of class. You will listen to inspiring speakers, watch amazing stage productions, attend awesome parties, and discover more about yourself and the person you want to be. Students love UNCG because it encourages and enables them to have the time of their lives.
