I am currently attending UNCW for my second semester. I was accepted as a spring admit in January 2016 for the spring semester. The transition coming into the second semester was flawless and I met friends extremely easily. Everyone around campus is chill, laid back, and amiable. I immediately fell in love with not only the atmosphere, but everything the school provided. For example, clubs and safety. Also, the education is second to none. The teachers care immensely about their students and provide excellent learning. Overall, I love UNCW!

I have enjoyed my time at UNCW. There are lots of groups on campus that cater to a variety of interests. One of my first club fairs on campus I think I signed up for over 100 club interest emails. Once I joined a club it was fairly easy to make friends with others who share similar interests to mine. The library on campus is a great place to study or simply to just go for a quiet place to read. I find myself constantly in the library and then hopping over to the food court for a quick bite to eat. If I need some school supplies I go over to the bookstore where I have a variety of different colored binders, folders, and pens to choose from. I’m very happy I chose UNCW to finish my education at and hopefully I can come back for graduate school in the future!

1.) The career center is subpar at best. If you are looking to sell insurance, the career center at UNCW is the right place for you! I've visited the career center multiple times and I have not been able to get any connections in any entry-level industry field. The seawork website(a website that the career center runs that includes any job openings) has few jobs and a non diversified job range to choose from. There are 76 full time, entry-level jobs on the website as of 12/7/16 with around 90% of it being in sales and most of it in the insurance industry. There is no help by the career center in getting a full time position after college if you are hoping to stay out of cold-calling insurance selling.
