University of North Carolina Wilmington Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Alura

My school has a community vibe to it. We all seem to get along, no matter how different we are from one another. The feeling of unity when it comes to the pride of our school is such a pleasant experience that I reccommend everyone to come here. I've seen people fall off their bikes or skateboards and suddenly several people are crowded around those individuals, checking to see if they are alright. That is an anomaly from the present day college society and I'm proud to see it at my school.

Tyler

Being close to the beach.

Cassidy

I brag about the proximity to the beach and the stong community connection that the school is striving to build, even though it is only 66 years old.

Of course, the first thing people think about when they hear UNC Wilmington is the location. It is awesome being five minutes down the road from the beach! The campus is gorgeous! It is always clean and there are lots of trees and flowers everywhere. The campus is relatively small so you don't have to walk far. The classes are small which makes it a great learning environment.
