5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have really liked most of my professors thus far. All of them are so enthusiastic about their subject that it makes the class more enjoyable. Class sizes are nice, not too big and not too small which leads to a perfect learning environment.

Overall Experience: The campus has a lot of job fairs and involvement fairs which help people in the networking process. They make it very easy and available for people to connect with others.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are a part of the college experience. They have a lot of dorm options for freshman but need more options as the school is growing. Galloway holds the most students and it a lot of fun, but the rooms are tiny and the bathrooms are not too clean. The newer dorms are more spacious and cleaner.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life plays a big role around campus, but is not necessary in order to enjoy college. The only available Greek housing on campus are sorority suites which hold ten girls per suite per sorority.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Due to the fact that there is no football team school spirit is not that high. However, during basketball season fan support is present for their home games. The facilities, especially the basketball stadium is very nice.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I attended college far from home and never expected to find a home so far away from home. I would come here again if I were to choose schools all over again. I feel as if I am becoming who I am because of the people I met at school and it is turning me into the person I am growing to be.

Health & Safety: Police often patrolling, lots of preventative measures are taken

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing has changed so sign up is a free-for-all. This is the worst possible system because many students do not get the housing that they want/need.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life isn't necessarily a big part, a lot of people involved in Greek life are friends with non-Greeks, etc.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports tend to not be a large part of the school. Occasional advertisement for baseball, basketball or soccer can be found around campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The academics at UNCW are one of the best quality when compared to other state schools. Most of the professors and students are helpful and encouraging. However, the school tends to suck money out of my pocket at any given chance.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my experience so far and have felt that my time here has been worth while. I have learned so much, been involved with so much, and have grown to love my school and community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our school provides great opportunities for networking and learning about different careers in our degree program. There are tons of opportunities to be involved in our program and allow us to get experience, such as the Wall Street simulation lab that gives us an authentic, but fake experience of Wall Street.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our campus really tries to provide as much information as possible to prepare students and educate them on all things regarding health and safety. I have personally been to the health services and felt that they knew what they were doing. It is easily accessible and convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live and which community, the options can be small and dirty, but there can also be options that are nice, clean, with lots of perks.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am pretty indifferent about Greek life, but the influence is still there on campus. It is not as influential as other schools, but there is not a pressure to join a fraternity/sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our recreation center is one of the best on the east coast and our facilities are clean, taken care of, and accessible for all students. They are open good hours that fit a student's lifestyle.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have grown a lot as a person while my time in college, I have grown in my opinions, in my knowledge of topics and of my identity. I have felt encouraged and well prepared for each class due to the extensive help and academic resources available on campus. There is something to do always, I am never bored and I feel confident about my future and my opportunities in the future.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UNCW has now become quite a prestigious university throughout the south east. As for the Physical Education degree, it is does have value; one reason being that there are only a few schools in NC that offer Physical Education.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a variety of courses offered each semester. I really enjoy Physical Education because we are a tight knit group and everyone knows each other. I have ranged from having 7 people in my class to having 35, so it just depends on the class.

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.
