What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is fine, most people are only there for the beach and leave after their first year. There is little to no diversity and that royally sucks. The school is big and they are currently building in recovery from the hurricane so there's that. Overall it's expensive so if you don't have money or have scholarships set sail for somewhere else kiddo.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to this school because it is the only public university in the state with a stand-alone creative writing department. I am also double majoring in film. Both of my majors have incredibly good programs and amazing staff. I am very happy with my choice to come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of North Carolina Wilmington is an overall fantastic school in all aspects. The campus hosts brilliant professors that teach in small to medium classroom sizes. Professors are eager to help students succeed and offer availability at all hours. Aside from academics there is a wide array of clubs, activities, programs, and sports to be found through UNCW. Off campus the city of Wilmington is not short on recreational fun activities. Located close to Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach the weather here is almost always sunny and warm. UNCW in my opinion is the perfect school for students who enjoy an active life style, rewarding academics, and getting involved on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of North Carolina Wilmington is an excellent school for extracurricular involvement, academic growth, and a school in the perfect spot. It is right by the beach and in town so shopping and relaxing is convenient. The staff are very deep into their projects and continued research, yet still manage to find the time to give students the most opportunity to take everything they need away from a class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a fun college and has great academics and sports. The teachers are very understandable of your schedule with sports and school work balance and that really helps athletes perform their best. Coaches are also mindful of schoolwork and jobs, and adjust their schedule accordingly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The spirit of University North Carolina Wilmington is to have no school spirit. It is a relaxed environment where you see students barefoot on longboards and soaking up the sun on the beach. The chill vibes of the campus create a safe environment where I could walk back to my dorm past a hazy field at 4 am from the library without any concern. Living on campus for the first year created the best experience to make close friends. Everyone jokes about the housing conditions of Galloway but it is all part of the college experience. Walking up the stairs to my room past slices of pizza thrown on the floor. Living on campus is so convenient I decided to stay for my sophomore year in on-campus student apartments which gave more freedom but much more space. Meal plan was necessary freshman year which was great for Dubs at every meal. Even the other dining hall, Wagoner or "Wag," was a good breakfast stop. I love the staff at UNCW. I either lucked out at having the best professors or there is quality in the education. I was able to study abroad for a semester and found the staff at UNCW to be helpful even while I was away. If I could start over and pick where I wanted to go again, UNCW for certain.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great school for psychology. I was in the class of the 2017 APA president, while he was president. It was unreal that the top person of psychology in America, and top neuropsychologist of the world knows me by name. The professors really made themselves available and most classes I took, apart from the gen ed core classes, were small. The downside is that the university lacks diversity. It’s not uncommon to find that you are the only Hispanic in the room. There was both subtle and blatant racism among students. It also is common to see that there were next to no black students on campus. It is a great university for military members, vets, and their families. And financial aid was the best of all 3 universities I went to as an undergrad. They not only got me in state tuition the second they could, but they also got me the North Carolina lottery scholarship as well. This cost less than my university in my home state. I also was only forced to purchase one book a semester at full price, all other books required could be rented on amazon from $20-30 a piece. The games were fun to go to but the school isn’t ncaa . And the basket ball court is so small, it was hardly bigger than my HS basketball court. Although fans will show up in support, games are not nearly as big as state schools. Sororities and Frats are EVERYWHERE and very popular ( at least among the white students).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus is beautiful and located near the beach. The class sizes are good and the research opportunities are vast. They do tend to focus on Marine Biology but there are still many other programs. The food on campus is usually good and there many optioms to choose from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to UNCW is the best decision that I have made thus far. I was terrified coming to UNCW, but the community has made it to where I am valued, appreciated, and welcomed in every sense. People are never afraid to strike up a conversation with you. Professors and instructors always make sure to check up on you and there are a large variety of programs for students to access.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like UNCW. It was my first choice and I am so happy with the campus, the students, and the faculty. The classes are challenging but if you study, you can get a good grade. The campus is very nice and you can get anywhere on campus within 15 minutes. The party scene is super fun too, and you can find a party anywhere since the fraternities put them on every weekend.
