Victoria - 07/30/2020

UNCG was a fun school to be at. Greensboro is small (i.e. not very much going on), but UNCG makes up for it with the RAs trying to keep everybody involved on campus and then the off-campus house parties. Campus was really safe, very walkable and compact, just watch out if you venture off campus as it can get kind of sketchy in the surrounding areas. The School of Music was GORGEOUS. New, beautiful with a bunch of practice rooms, soaring ceilings. If you're a music major, that school feels like you have MADE it. Campus life always had a bunch going on, whether it was snowball fights when it snowed or playing soccer on the lawn. Starbucks in the student center was life. Great school, very artsy.

ZaNaiya - 07/10/2020

One thing I love the most about UNCG is how involved the students are with their academic lives. We strive to be some of the best students and will continue to strive after graduating. I also love how we all celebrate the history of Greensboro and the school.

I love it here!!

As a rising Junior in the Bryan Business School at UNCG, I could not be happier. The professors are willing to help you if you show that you are driven, class sizes are small enough you can ask questions, but big enough that you could miss class and not too many people would care. There are plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved in that can help you professionally. If you are passionate about your major, going to class and doing well should not be a problem for you.

  7. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    The best thing at UNCG is the suitcase campus. Greensboro is almost in the middle of North Carolina and UNCG's location is close to students homes. I remember my first year here, on weekend nearly the entire freshmen body living on campus would go home for the weekend just because home is very close. Now this is what is best and worst for UNCG. The campus looses its school pride and spirit. UNCG spirit is very low compare to similar universities. Some might say is because we do not have a football team, but that should not be the excuse for not having school spirit. I love UNCG because its not too small or too large, it is just perfect as far as size and what is being offer. All type of student can benefit from choosing here. The business program is top in country, our nursing program is very challenging, and finally our music program can match up with any university in the United States.

UNCG also has a reputation of have very pretty girls. So for the guys coming to campus single, you will have girls that will have something in common.

  13. What are the academics like at your school?

    At UNCG, professors care about your education. They truly want you to do before. Yes some basic requirement courses might have over 100 student, but professor will encourage you seek them out if you need extra help and take time for questions to explain something you do not understand. Then after you get into your major courses, you practically have a one on one relationship with the professor. In class, your professor will call you by name and ask you what can be done before in order to succeed in the course. Course work is average and as long as you stay on top of your assignment and get them done early and also see the professor before it is too late, there is no question that you will pass with flying colors. I am graduating in May 2012 and I made sure i did my work on time and ask question when i was stuck. emailing my professor was my secret, they truly respond to your email with more than you ask for.

  14. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    Coming out of high school, I had no expectations of what would be required of me upon entry. I assumed it would be like high school where there would be an abundance of teachers to help if needed. My experience in college has not been that at all. I have found that the professors treat us like adults and not children. I have had to adjust to this type of enviroment but it has been a good adjustment. It would have been nice if I had some type of communication with professors prior to the year beginning.

    The students are extremely diverse! From hipsters, "gangsters", jocks, "nerds", you name it! UNCG is also LGBT friendly, so there is a population of gay and lesbien students, which is awesome! I love that everyone is welcome and accepted here. Honestly, I can't say that there is one stereotype. Everybody has a place at UNCG I feel.

  19. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    Students at UNC-Greensboro usually get a reputation for being flowery hipster kids who endlessly haunt the music/art buildings. Needless to say this stereotype is true for a good number of students here, but there's enough diversity of thought on campus that all social groups are represented in a more or less equal fashion. People resembling stoners can be found in the College Ave dorms, Psuedo-geeks can be found a bit farther up in North Spencer, a dormitory for the honors college students. Jocks are usually found on the quad near the sports building and greek organizations, and hipsters are abound in the Music and Art building. UNCG is good for having a laid back atmosphere from semester to semester, and doesn't promote one social group above another.

    Depending on the subject, the professors varies. My communications course, the professor were fantastic, they truly care about the success of the student.

The dorm on campus have study areas which are very inviting and its has tables, desks, and a flat screen TV just in case you want to take a break.
