In my short time at UNCG, I have been witness to the incredible assets this school offers. I have been been placed with well qualified and caring professors who are eager to help me learn, been connected to a vast number of student groups, and have felt welcomed by everyone on campus. Each program offers its students a great number of opportunities to show off their skills outside of the classroom, including art shows, theatrical performances, and recitals. There are many hangouts on campus, such as the Elliot University Center and Jackson Library, as well as many local favorites such as Tate Street Coffee just steps away from the main campus. All of the diversity of UNCG is emulated in the entire Greensboro area, where UNCG students and faculty often reach out to the community to share in that culture. All together, UNCG is an amazing place to be, and there has not been a moment in my college career where I haven't felt supported, understood, and valuable. I am proud to be a Spartan!

When you first come to college, you are worried about if you are going to make friends. At UNCG there are a group of people for everybody. Here you are destined to find your life long best friend. Even though the athletic program isn't all that great, the games are still fun and we still show our Spartan pride! The professors here are very friendly and are willing to help you if you ask them, as long as you put in the extra effort to actually learn the material. The caf serves pretty nice food depending on the days and fried chicken Wednesdays are alway fun with music and greeks doing performances right there in the caf. The tuition rates are raising steadily though so if you aren't receiving some type of financial aid its going to be pretty tough to stay here. Since the university is so diverse, there is always something going on.

This school is absolutely amazing for the arts! Back when I toured, I was thinking about majoring and dance, I automatically fell in love with the dance program! But after I realized that it wasn't the right path for me and I chose a different major, the school lost interest. However, I love the atmosphere the school has and the people are extremely kind! I am still glad I chose UNCG and would recommend it for anyone looking for a great atmosphere at a medium sized college!
