4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses themselves can be very interesting. With some, you can tell that they are classes that people just take so that way they can graduate, but many higher level courses are interesting. Also, I have yet to have a professor that was unwilling to help me when I need his/her assistance.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Honestly, I do not know too much about the value of a degree from UNCW, but I do know that we do have a large alumni base and many people have been recognized that have attended this school.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school is a very safe campus, the police are very friendly, and there are many forms of help if something does end up happening. There are actually police boxes everywhere across the campus, in fact you can stand anywhere on campus and be able to see at least one of those boxes. I have always felt safe and many people would agree.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My freshman year I lived in Galloway Hall, which is the oldest building it has two people per room, a community bathroom, with a common room in the middle of the floor. It was honestly not the nicest building, but I formed a great community with our floor and we all got along together very well. Cornerstone is the nicest freshman dorm with lots of space and it is very clean. Graham-Hewlett is another freshman dorm that is nicer than Galloway but not as nice as Cornerstone it is set up in a suite style where two rooms share a common room and two common rooms share a bathroom. Schwartz has the least amount of rooms but it is one of the nicer freshman dorms, each floor is split up into thirds and the rooms are spacious. Belk is the all girls freshman dorm, which causes some problems from what I've heard, but overall it is not the nicest dorm. For upperclassmen, there are apartment-like buildings such as University Apartments, University Suites, Seahawk Crossing, Seahawk Landing, and Seahawk Village (in order from worst to best). I do not know much about the community for the International House and the Honors House, but the buildings are just as nice as Cornerstone. The housing process has very little stress and don't worry if you have a room with someone you don't know. Most upperclassmen do not live on campus, most of them either live in Campus Evolution, The lofts, or The Quad.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

UNCW offers students a unique, one-of-a-kind university experience, with the combination of its state-of-the-art facilities, well-established programs, location, priority of placing students first, and constant growth. The University is quite young compared to other schools, but it's already ranked right up there along with the best public universities. So much expansion, creation, attention, and credibility has been gained since UNCW's start, and more amazing feats and accomplishments are inevitable for the University's future. Small class sizes, expert professors, and large major varieties bring students of all types to campus. With around 13,000 students total at UNCW, it's the perfect size for those interested in a medium-sized school, and it fosters a unique dynamic. Students have the opportunity to meet someone new every day if they want to, but UNCW is small enough where there is a focus on individual student showcase; students don't have to worry about being lost or overshadowed.

UNCW really gives students all of the tools for success through classes, cultural events, networking opportunities, academic programs, and career developmental training, but it's up to the student to take advantage of these offerings. UNCW can be the perfect fit because of this incredible attention and genuine care for students. The size of the University is right, and the inviting, welcoming atmosphere creates a home for students; everyone can be a part of the University and is encouraged to reach for their aspirations. The campus motto is "Dare to Soar," and UNCW actually means it and follows through with this encouragement. A top choice time and time again, UNCW allows students to go above and beyond just learning in the classroom and makes hands-on, realistic experiences possible. The University is a hidden gem, but is growing every day to gain more national acknowledgement. UNCW is a wonderful place of acceptance and growth, both in the campus and its ambitious students.
