4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, my overall experience has been great. Most professors and courses here are excellent!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel career prospects and value of a degree from this school are great. I always hear about jobs and internships opportunities!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel UNCA is always doing its best to improve health and safety, which I really value and appreciate. For example, you must have your onecard to enter the residence halls and their are buttons around campus that can be pressed for help.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is quite enjoyable and makes getting to classes on time each day very easy. The rooms are fairly spacious and there are always places to find privacy outside the rooms as well, such as the study rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many students seem very invested in athletics and school spirit. The athletic gym is also very accessible and easy to use for everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of North Carolina at Asheville is a great school that is open to all kinds of people with different interests. Also, the school is relatively small, which gives me a sense of belonging and connection to the other students and staff. Because of this, I would definitely choose my school again if I could do it all over again. I have enjoyed my time here greatly so far and can't wait to see what my future here holds!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our Campus Safety officers are great. They are committed to keeping members of the campus community updated on local crime and other concerns. They will even escort you back to your residence hall if you so desire.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The amenities are good; we get free HBO and cable, but the process to apply for housing is awful. It's on a first come first serve basis, which means that if you don't apply as soon as the application opens, you probably won't get any housing, and then you have to find a place off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit and fan support are okay but could definitely use a boost.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like it because it is small and unique.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Everyone at UNCA is very concerned about the well being of the whole community. One of the first things they said at orientation was "look to your right and look to your left. You have a responsibility to look out for that person, and they have a responsibility to watch out for you."

Athletics: UNCA really gets its students involved in the Bulldog Spirit by encouraging everyone to get involved. There is even an app that gives you points for attending games and events, which you can then trade in for stuff!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone who works at UNCA is so professional, friendly, and welcoming. If you have a question, there are always people happy to help you, and they truly care about you on a personal level. I would highly recommend this university for anyone who wants a top-notch, personal education at a fraction of the cost of private schools. I have talked to several of my high school teachers, and every single one has stated that UNCA is the best public university in NC for undergraduates.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are relatively small, depending on the field and type of class. The professors are very open to helping students individually or setting up study groups. I had a professor that set up weekly study groups for any students interested. It strongly helped us learn the material and our final grades.

Health & Safety: Since it is such a small campus, there are very few sexual assaults. I only know of 1 that occurred last year and the attacker was injured by the victim. I feel safe on campus, but it's always good to keep your guard up.

Greek Life: Greek life is not as large on the campus of UNCA compared to most colleges. I don't always know if someone is a part of Greek life or not. I don't think Greek housing is available.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UNC Asheville is not very known for its athletic department as much as its arts, but the men's basketball team made it to the NCAA this year!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is so much opportunity to gain experience in my field through UNCA while in school. Since it's so small, professors can and will work individually with students who ask for help. I feel very welcomed and comfortable there. It feels like a second home.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life on campus does not affect me in any way.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Honestly, I haven't attended a single sporting event the whole time I have been at UNCA. Much better things happening at this school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNCA was a nice surprise coming in as a freshman. I had been told that my professors would not care about me, and that I would be just a number to them, but that was not the case here. My professors care more about me and my success than most of my high school teachers. I am very pleased with the staff at this institution.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel like in order to keep up the image of being a safe small liberal school a lot of the problems are swept under the rug. I personally know people that have been assaulted or victims of some other crime and haven't received much help except from other students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors I had were all pretty cool and understanding. Even though I didn't have to go to them for an issue I felt like I would be able to approach them with any issue I was having. Most of the classes are small so a lot of the professors like to hear the student's input on the subjects in the class.

Health & Safety: A lot of people complain when they see cops doing their rounds at night in the residence halls (they only complain because they most likely have drugs), but it makes me feel much safer knowing the police are continuously checking up on everyone and making sure the buildings are secure. I also appreciate how there are multiple emergency blue lights located all around campus, and how usually (because there is a little tree blockage) you can see the next blue light from the station you are at. I feel pretty safe at UNCA; I cannot say the same for other universities. I know that crime and assault still happen on the UNCA campus, but it is far less prevalent than on other campuses because of our security measures, and I am confident that if anything were to happen to me, the school would handle it properly and give me the justice and security I deserve.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In four semesters so far of being a student at UNCA, I have yet to have a professor that I absolutely could not stand. I have only had one issue with a professor, and that is just because that professor did not inform any students in the class about their grades for the entire semester, so my final grade was a surprise to me. Other than that, the teaching faculty is excellent. Professors at UNCA are always making sure their students are prepared and understand the material being taught, and will even take time out of their busy schedules to assist a student in need. The class sizes are perfect; I would not change a thing about that. There is a great variety of classes and topics to choose from at UNCA, and that is something I think UNCA excels in compared to other institutions.
