5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school. I have had so much fun and interesting experiences and have met great people and teachers! Plenty of places to get food and other essentials that you need. The buses can take you almost anywhere! Food Deliveries go until like 2 or 3 in the morning (I love food).

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My first year housing was not the greatest building on campus, but we made the most of it. All the other resident halls are extremely nice and renovated! The housing I lived in is said to not be renovated until 2017 and I feel sorry for the freshmen who have to live in Cone their first year, but I will tell you that I met all my best friends there.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of fun events and free stuff! A very spirited school when it comes to athletic events.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Have a great diversity with the Greek organizations. I have yet to decide which one I would like to join, but I do get to explore and see how each Greek organization functions and the activities that they like to do.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We do receive emails and text of alerts that alarms us when something is going on near or on campus and are concerned with keeping us out of the area of harm.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: For what I'm going to school specifically for, this school is so incredible, challenging, and creates so many opportunities for music education majors.

Diversity: We are full of minority. Mostly members of the LGBT community. That's why people also call my school "UNC Gays-boro."

Drug Safety: To be honest, drug safety at my school is not really talked about. We all had to take an education course on it to be accepted into the university, but other than that it's kind of mute.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The university take everything serious when it comes to sexual assaults and rape. UNCG has a email warning system that lets the whole campus know crime happening through email and text. Also, they respond to crime events that are close to the campus (off campus). In my opinion, this was a good feature. Also, there is a health center that can help people going through the horror of rape mentally and spiritually.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The internship availability in Greensboro, NC is the best if you are a business or accounting major. However, if you are a history or biology major then there are some struggles finding an internship or a good job that is in your field. Finding a job within the area through the alumni network is the best way instead of going to the career center. The more network then the more available opportunities outside of Greensboro, NC.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I like the on-campus house. Majority of the housing are renovated or new, so there are very few problems with the condition of the building. There system for the housing, such as repairs in the room, are fast and friendly staff.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics program is for the average to the above average athlete, if they are coming straight from high school. I don't think athletic programs are the main focus of the school. UNCG is more focus on the people who want academic benefits or career change in their life. This is one of the positive side of UNCG than the other UNC schools.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) is bike friendly campus and welcoming to international students. The diversity of the campus is not by race, but by age. I have been to UNCG since 2009 and now I will try to get my master's in biochemistry. However, there are some hurdles to jump over, especially if you trying boost your experiences in the resume. There are many great opportunities that are hidden way from the main sphere.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is average.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere of living on campus is great but the quality of the dorms are not good considering the high rates that we are paying.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is big on campus, and the fraternities and sororities are very involved on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: My favorite sporting event to attend at my school is basketball considering that I played throughout my life, play on my school's club team, and referee in the intramural league.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel very comfortable at my school because it allows me to be myself, have a social life, and provides an environment in which I can get my work done.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The new security app helps notify police quickly.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The small class sizes help with communication.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many career programs on campus.

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.
