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.

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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

Overall Experience: I am a rising junior, so I do not have much input on this topic. I will, however, begin discussions with the career center starting in the spring of my junior year, and begin planning for graduate studies or possible career choices.

Campus Housing: I've only stayed in the Ridges where it's mostly quiet and a bit off from the center of campus. But the campus is still pretty small so it's not a long walk to get to class or anywhere you need to go. Plus Down Under in Overlook is fairly close.

Greek Life: Greek Life is definitely not a strong aspect of campus life.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNCA is a pretty liberal small college campus which I love about it. There are many different opportunities to get involved around campus and the surrounding community. However, it's not very diverse and some people aren't as liberal as they like to think.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are ok, but most of them (besides Mills) are pretty far from the academic buildings. It is a hassle going to class on normal days because most of the dorms are located downhill and the classes are uphill. However, inclement weather just makes everything worse and students are more likely going to skip because they don't feel like taking a 10 minute walk through the rain and wind to class. I personally have not skipped due to my dorm location, however I know people that do, and its a horrible reason to skip. Oh, and the Housing Department just sucks in general. I have been booted off campus to make room for the incoming freshmen because admissions admitted way too many students, and housing did not tell anyone about this until the day of housing applications. It would have been nice to know in advance that spots for upperclassmen on campus were limited, and that we should look for off campus housing in the meantime. Luckily, I got one of the last spots in an off campus apartment, but I just barely got it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not interested in Greek life as far as becoming a sorority member goes. However, I am in a couple Greek honor societies. I wish those were advertised more than the actual sororities and fraternities because the honor societies are more meaningful to the average student. I have met some really nice people in the frats and srats, but it is not my thing so I do not see myself joining in the remaining two years I have at UNCA.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really attend games because I am either too busy or just completely disinterested, therefore my input in this section is extremely limited. The few games I have been to, though, were excellent. The fans are great and the fan patrol is even greater. They really know how to get you pumped for the games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love UNCA. It is one of those places where you will always come across new adventures and opportunities. The students can be..."vocal", but they are generally friendly and welcoming. The staff is amazing. I have never had any professor know me by name by the second class, or pull me aside outside of class to see how I am doing until I started at UNCA. It is absolutely fantastic, but like all schools, it is not for everyone. Most of the students hold really strong (typically strong liberal views) opinions or views that may be countercultural or hard to handle if you are not of the same mindset. I have never felt threatened by this; If anything, I agree with a lot of the views and ideas the majority of the student body holds, but I do see how it can be challenging for more conservative or sheltered students. But overall, UNCA always provides a platform for one to speak their mind and be heard, no matter what your background is, and that is something I really appreciate about UNCA.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I know of several sexual assault cases where no charges have been raised. It's bad.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: NCUR will be here next week! So excited!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Had some issues unrelated to academics

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe, being that there is the blue safety posts around every corner that you can press if you need help. Also the fact that they have an app for rocky alert makes you feel even safer with the press of a button at your finger tips at all time, can make you feel extremely safe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Classes they offer are great, but then they don't even have a teacher to teach those courses. Our humanities class is a joke because the people who teach it aren't meant to teach those courses.
