College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home and this does not apply to me.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus rules are expected to be followed to a t.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I dont party at UNCG, i do not live on campus.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was in honor society, national technical honor society, recieved my gold award in girl scouts, show horses competitavely, dance on a competition clogging team, had a 4.0 gpa, and worked a part time job and I still could nt get any more financial aid besides government loans from uncg.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many different food options all hours of the day!

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I commute.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've been to a couple of frat house parties and I had an amazing time. It was fun and there was music and dancing.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: To be honest, at first it was a real hassle and I got worried multiple times that I would not be able to attend. Currently, I am in need of just one or two thousand more and I wouldn't need to worry so much. Since my family isn't doing so well economically.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food and dining options on campus are fine. Some days are better then others but usually the caf isn't as great on the weekends as it is in the weekday.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The residence hall I live in right now is okay for a freshman hall but I cannot wait to move to a nicer building I have been in. Although the people and the social atmosphere is great here.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have no idea what the school offers in terms of off campus housing so I can't give an educated review.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's great for me because Tate Street is almost around the corner and there's a lot of variety out there. Unfortunately, the cost is a little high and there aren't many student discounts at all over there so that's unfortunate.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is necessary because they are working to protect us. The visitation policy is the only one I've ever had trouble with.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to any parties, nor do I really know where the good ones are. I'm not sure I'd know a "good party" if it hit me in the face.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I need more financial aid then I'm really given annually, but that's due to my declining family situation. The financial aid office here seems to handle things smoothly if not a little slowly with the refund checks.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The flex places are good in variety and seem to have a lot of vegetarian options (I'm really sensitive to that because my roommate is vegetarian). The caf really doesn't have a whole lot of options for people who are allergic or vegetarian. The best places are Chick-fil-a and Taco Bell really. Salsarita's is pretty good too. Jimmy Johns and Chipolte are also great but they aren't flex places yet. You can use your flex to buy Starbucks drinks at the Barnes and Noble cafe, but my favorite thing is that you can buy critical things you need with flex - I bought nail clippers from the Spartan 360 Market. You can also get medicines, chapstick, and phone chargers.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm I live in, North Spencer, is really long and a really nice place to live in some aspects. It's incredibly close to just about everything and maybe three steps from the caf. However, the lighting is kinda dim and the rooms can be small. Plus the building is just older. The quad is gorgeous but there aren't nearly enough rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life on campus is nice I plan to rush a frat next semester and, took the opportunity to go meet a buddy of mines frat. They where a great group of people whose company i really enjoyed

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing is mostly by room, but in my search i have met tons of great landlords and beautiful housing locations

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: For a small town guy like me the options seem endless,but if your from a city or larger area expect to see a lot of the same.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I haven't had a lot of interaction with them, but they seem to be alright

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have friends in a frat and am planing to Rush one next semester. I recommend it to anyone looking for a greater sense of community and belonging on campus. The frats provide both a great night life as well as a life long social group.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I spent a week exclusively in the cafe and compared to the school i attend it was fantastic.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: From everyone I have spoken to on campus the general agreement is that while the dorms can be small, and a little on the strict side they are nice dorms and, provide a great place to start your experiance

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I will admit that they are accommodating when it comes to choosing a place to stay of campus, however it is hard to determine where to stay because the price is so high and sometimes the price doesn't match the quality.

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.
