If you have lived in a small town all of your life, prepare to have your mind blown when you come to UNCG. Expect to have your beliefs and opinions challenged, and don't be surprised if they have been strengthened or even changed when you walk away from the University in four years. This is exactly the experience you are facing when you meet the vast array of people on this campus—all of whom come from different racial, ethnic, religious, political, social, and sexual backgrounds. While it's true that UNCG has a reputation for a large number of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) students, rest assured that no one will question your orientation based solely on your attendance at the University. All kinds of love and relationships are valued on this campus, which is a perfect example of how diverse it really is.
Whether you are looking for a group of people to fit in with or if you need a political sparring partner to bounce your ideas off of, you will find people to enrich your life at UNCG. Just try not to get too hot-headed if someone takes a strong stance against something you think or agree with—it's bound to happen on a campus such as this.
