3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity and everyone is accepted

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After my freshman year at this school, the only way to describe how I feel would be that i had been chewed up and spit out by the university.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved getting to learn new things, explore more horizons and understand myself better thanks to my professors. The classes I've taken have helped me to grow more than I ever thought I could. It has been something worth working and sweating for. I am looking forward to getting more experience and interesting challenges.

Overall Experience: Propel in the career center help students under-graduates and including graduates be more creative, positive, confident and pro-active in their broadening of their skills. The alumni help and assist the school a lot and also get to enjoy a lovely experience at the school with other faculty, staff and a group of students from different places, countries and states too.

Health & Safety: On campus we are given access cards to our buildings this way not everyone can have easy access to our dormitories. This is a way to insure safety in the dorms and it also helps protect students from harm and strangers. The school also has it's own police system and alarm devices. In case of any emergency those people and devices are used to the max.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has it's advantages. Not only does one get to have access to be closer to the learning halls/buildings but also closeness to the dining places. Living in a close knit community provides you with comfort and you feel more secure too. Off-campus housing is so much more affordable compared to on-campus housing. That's the disadvantage.

Greek Life: Sororities and fraternities tend to be way too energetic, loud and disturbing with so many activities going on. It feels like they have a lot of time on their hands to always meet and have discussions. I would not know what that is all about though. But when they do meet I am aware of that. Most of us who are not part of the Greek life do not see it as Big.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports and activities are quite interesting and really involve many students. Who all come from different places, regions and very diverse communities. I love how sports brings all people together in unity and harmony. The sport facilities are really grand and the athletes can train both indoors and outdoors for most sports here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the environment of my school. It has amazing plant life that reminds me of home. I also enjoy my classes and getting to know my classmates or/and interacting with my roommates and professors too. As an international student it has been a great experience getting to be involved in foreign studies and being independent.

Health & Safety: I have not once ever felt unsafe on campus. I know that if I ever were to feel unsafe that there are cops everywhere and that there are plenty of emergency call boxes to keep me safe.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Every sport event that I've been to at school was buzzing with positive vibes from our student section, and even from the fans that don't go to the college.

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.
