4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors that I have had have been the best teachers I have ever had. However, the science lectures have 100+ students. That being said, the professors still took individual interest into the students who showed interest in them. All of my professors knew my name.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of North Carolina at Wilmington is great. The students, along with the faculty, are more than amazing. Professors will go out of their way to make sure that the students understand the topic being taught. The student body has an amazing feel to it. There is always an event going on on campus that gets other students involved. Being close to the beach as its perks also. If I had the chance to go through college selection again, I know for a fact that I would pick UNCW again, based on the vibe that the school as, along with the fact that they have a great business program.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I entered UNCW almost finished with my degree. I could not be more happy with it, as everyone in the Spanish department is extremely knowledgeable and professional with their subject area. I would definitely recommend UNCW for anyone wanting to major in Spanish.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think this school was great for what I needed at the time. There is an exceptional campus and staff as well as great courses available. What makes the school unique is the students who attend. There is such a wide variety of people it is a great place to make relationships and build networks. I would chose this school all over again because I have met incredible people, attained great knowledge and information from professors, and gained real world experience loving on my own and working in an eclectic town.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending school in Wilmington has been an incredible experience so far and I wouldn't change my decision for my undergraduate school. I've found my professors are helpful, the courses are challenging and the Wilmington community is a great place to live. Riding my beach bike or long boarding across the flat campus to classes has been an experience I've come to enjoy. Playing on intramural sports teams and joining a college ministry on campus have been highlights my freshman year.

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.
