The University of North Carolina Wilmington is known for its Marine Biology, Education and Nursing schools. Our athletic teams like baseball and basketball are one of the best in the conference. Even if you are not on an althetic team, you can stay fit at our incredible student recreation center, which is one of the biggest facilities in the nation. UNCW is a very safe and friendly environment. And, of course, we can't forget the beach which is only 15 minutes away!

My school is best known for its Marine Biology, Business Administration programs, and the National UNCW Surf Team, who won first place at Nationals a year ago. The Business program is highly respected thoughout the state, and the Marine Biology program has made incredible scientific advances while working right here on the water. When people think UNCW, they think the beach, sunshine, and hardworking students striving to make Wilmington and UNCW a better place to be day in and day out.

I think anyone who wants to come to UNCW should be able to, why should one person have favoritism over the next? All people deserve to have a good education in order to better their future.

The beach, and marine biology.

Emily

I believe my school is best known for a lot of different programs, but whenever someone thinks of UNC-Wilmington, they think of the beach, then their thoughts automatically go to Marine Biology. I admit that when I decided to go to this school I would look into Marine Biology as a major. It is a great place to study a subject like that because we are so close to the beach and a lot of marine life. UNC-Wilmington is a very prestigious school that will challenege students in whatever they want to learn.

Ranked as one of the top public universities. It is close to the beach. It does not have a football team so, basketball is their sport. They have a great Marine Science program. The people are friendly. The majority of the students come from North Carolina.

Jac

Marine Biology, every major here is good though and there is plenty of opportunity. Film is also a huge major here, many shows and movies are filmed in Wilmington and this town is predictably going to become the third biggest in the film industry in the U.S. There are many clubs here and activities to participate in, and many opportunities for internships and jobs.

Christopher

UNCW is special because it has something for everyone. From campus, the beach is a ten minute drive down the road, a nice river front downtown is a 15 minute drive away another direction, and a fancy shopping center is a ten minute drive another way. There is plenty to do on and off campus to keep any student happy. The weather isn't too shabby either.

I think the UNCW Swimming and Diving?! ONLY being 10 minutes away from the BEACH! Great ways to be INVOLVED on and off campus! Good help on financial aid! Huge campus and definitely in need of a BIKE!
