5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I easily found an apartment for next year.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Wilmington is a great city to live in and offers a tremendous amount of restaurants of all types.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I love my teachers and am having a great experience. I feel like I am learning a lot here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I completed the FAFSA last year and there were some headaches but it worked out ok.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I am focused on studying and enjoy the company of a few close friends. I don't really know about the party scene.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I enjoy Chick Fil A and Dunkin Donuts the most.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on the campus of UNC Wilmington has been a great experience for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my months here, met some terrific friends and loved every day.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is reasonable, just the same everyday.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I never joined Greek life and I haven't been a student long enough to give a full opinion.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is no football team and the basketball team sucks so that isn't the greatest, but UNCW has the nicest gym and intramural fields I have come across yet. If you're not a varsity athlete, then athletics are pretty great.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options for off-campus housing in every price range all offering something different.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The only thing that could make off-campus dining better is if prices were a bit lower and locations were a bit closer.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some policies regarding partying and parking are over the top but there isn't anything too unreasonable that you cannot get around.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The key is to go to the financial aid office again and again until your issues are finally resolved. Never send an email or phone call - they won't get back to you.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are definitely parties at UNCW and most are fun but comparatively, they're only okay.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of different dining options and most have at least one or two good items. Out of all the college food i've tasted, I would say that UNCW has great dining.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On-Campus housing can be really spectacular, but at all costs avoid Galloway Hall. It is the oldest of the dorms on campus and is infested with roaches and other bugs. Although it has a great community feel, it is quite gross.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live in Avalon and love my complex. It is not too expensive and comes with a lot of perks.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many places have really good deals such as Islands. Some places offer discounts but there is usually a coupon book handed out in the beginning of the semester that has coupons.

College Junior

Administration: I do not live on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I did not receive as much aid as I needed and I know people who get in state tuition and receive more aid than people who pay out of state tuition.

Party Scene: It is very easy to find parties if you're looking for them. Certain apartment complexes like Progress 910, always have parties going on. But if you don't party, UNCW is still a good environment.

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.
