Athletics: UNCW does not have a football team nor is a big ACC school like some in North Carolina. However our sports teams such as Soccer and Basketball are quite good and games are fun to attend. Recently soccer games have become more popular. There is an abundance of intramural and club sports for students to attend. Many club sporting events are popular to go to especially hockey and rugby.

Academics: The academic at UNCW are really great in my opinion. Class sizes are not too big. My biggest class had maybe 120 people. There are plenty of resources if you need tutoring including the Math and Writing labs. The professors are all very nice and care about your academic success and are willing to meet with students during their office hours or by appointment if they need help. Even my professors of large lecture hall classes have made efforts to be very personable. The registration process is good, my academic advisor is very resourceful and helpful! Workload varies on your major and the kind of classes you take. Many people study in the library or in the study areas in the student center. On nice days you will even see many students studying outside; there is an abundance of outdoor seating and tables.

Campus Housing: As a freshman I'm currently living in Belk Hall. Although the dorms are small and it is an older building, the suite style is ideal. They just replaced the floors over the summer, so it is really nice compared to some of the other older buildings. Each hall has a laundry room with two washers and two dryers and laundry is free for residents. When housing assignments came out over the summer there seemed to be a lot of issues due to technical issues and overcrowding. At the beginning of the year many rooms had one extra person living in the common room, however by now most of them have been reassigned to normal living situations. When bringing in someone who lives outside of your residence hall, you must check them in with the desk receptionist, even if they are a UNCW student. It is a tedious annoying process, however it is nice knowing that the dorms are safe. Guests must leave at 12 Sun.-Thurs. but may stay 24-hours on weekends. Over all my on campus housing is okay, and I plan on living on campus again next year, but in an apartment style residence, not a dorm.

Local Area: One of the main reasons I chose to come to UNCW is it's Local Atmosphere. The biggest perk is being so close to the beach. Wrightsville Beach is only a 10 minute drive and several other beaches are close as well. Downtown Wilmington is also really cool. It is a beautiful historic district by the Cape Fear River with a lot going on as far as nightlife and the occasional event or festival on the weekends. The school is in a pretty safe area. There is plenty of shopping around campus and downtown. Wilmington is very much a college town so there is a generally positive attitude toward students. The only problem with the area is that the traffic on College Road and surrounding roads is TERRIBLE. Other than that Wilmington is the perfect place to live and learn!

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is good. I never feel threaten by anyone and if I do there are blue buttons I can push anywhere on campus which calls a police to come to my location.

Majors: I was assigned a total of three interviews for three different internships. It was about a three week process that was stressful but helpful at the same time. It helped with my interview skills and allowed me to learn more about each organization.

Administration: I believe that the campus strictness at my school is great. I feel safe wherever I go which is not always the case when I am else where.

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.
