I went in thinking it would be a lower tier school but was surprised by the level of attention the faculty pays to you.

UNC- Wilmington is a huge campus with a diverse populous of students and teachers. The environment of the school is very warming and beyond a shadow of a doubt, it takes itself serious. Many of the healthcare related programs offered here are highly bragged upon, but you can expect to get the best experience where ever you go into studying. The dorms are a little sketchy, but I don't expect anyone spending to much time in a room with all of the activities available to students.

After my freshman year at this school, the only way to describe how I feel would be that i had been chewed up and spit out by the university.
