5 College Freshman

Academics: Perfection from the part of professors, workload is normal, lots of study options and an amazing curriculum

1 College Freshman

Diversity: No diversity, low acceptance of the few diverse students- in all aspects: ethnic background, racial diversity, political views, religion, sexual orientation, economic background, "style" of dress, etc

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Average amount of usage, not excessive except at fraternity parties then it gets extremely out of hand and you feel unsafe due to the level of fights and alcohol poisoning, etc. UNCW has a zero tolerance policy so it makes it really hard to have fun parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many options, not very "big" or popular, I honestly do not know much about them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are all amazing, helpful, wonderful humans who are completely qualified and go above and beyond to help their students succeed and to give us every opportunity to advance our knowledge. The campus is beautiful, the programs are intensive and invigorating and classes fair. The students are very unfriendly however, and campus dining and housing is atrocious. There are not enough words to explain how unsatisfied and disappointed I am and have been with campus housing and dining and the meal plan options. Racial tension exists along with discrimination.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not a huge thing at UNCW. I am not a part of one and I do not feel the need to.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have only been to two events: A soccer and hockey game. Both were great, but I am not a huge fan of sports.

Overall Experience: Love the school, but as a freshman, I do not like living in a dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are emergency call boxes all over campus and campus is well-lit at night.

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.
