4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am living off campus next year, and I can't wait! 60% of the undergraduate students live off campus and most of the dorms are freshman only/prominent. There are wave buses that stop around each apartment complex within a mile radius to pick students up and take them to campus. The apartment variety and prices vary depending on what you want.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of options from fast food, and chain restaurants to local and family owned restaurants and dinners.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The dorms are extramley strict on visitation and who can and can't enter to buildings and go past the lobby area.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarships are very competitive and there aren't many options for help but they do provide a list of other scholarships that come from outside sources.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't attend many parties because i'm not big on drinking but from what I have heard and seen they are okay.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food choices are always the same and they get boring after a while. There are healthy options to choose from, but the food is not the best quality/tasting. I would recommend getting a plan with more food dollars because you can get chick-fil-a, subway, go to the local market and other options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus my freshman year because it gave me a chance to meet new friends and I have friends all down my hall. I was able to join Area Chapter and I now help put on programs around residential area. I have been able to meet many different people. However, it is a dorm so you do have to share a bathroom and stuff but I only have to share it with 3 other girls so it is not so bad. Overall I have enjoyed it and it is not a bad experience. I would definitely recommend living on campus your first year no matter where you go.

Campus Food: I love the variety of food uncw offers. The new dubs is amazing and offers many new healthy options. At times it can seem overpriced.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in galloway. Though the amenities were not the best or cleanest, the social life and involvement was great. I made some of my best friends in college here.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much of anything about off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Wilmington has a lot of great options for food: healthy and not so healthy but that's your choice.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I feel safe at my school although I don't like the checking in policies for the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't get much financial aid, but with the help of my mother, we figured out how to get what we had.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties. I have a job, so I don't have much time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining on campus gets old after a while especially Wag, but I think UNCW has a good variety of places to eat on campus. If you don't have a good amount of food dollars, you might not get as many options though. It's nice to have the Market and places like that on campus even though they're overpriced.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a great experience to be able to live on campus at least for the first year of college. You're able to get use to living on your own in a safe environment, and you get to meet new people and make friends. Although I've enjoyed my stay on campus, I am ready to move into an off campus apartment next year because it is cheaper.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the dining options in the immediate vicinity of campus are fast food. However, hit Market Street and the Front Street area, and there are even more options to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: There are organizations set up that can positively affect a student's personal life, career, and the lives of others. The school is very strict on alcohol and drugs, especially since most of the students are under the age of 21 in the campus apartments.

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.
