Although I've only been attending for a semester, I really enjoyed the professors here. Colleges employ professors to earn a reputation for the school with their research. Many schools don't even care about the teaching; as long as the teacher's research is getting the school recognized, the teacher is left alone. At UNCW, the students are required to submit evaluations of the professor. In my opinion, this keeps the teachers on track. Each professor made it easy to approach them about questions I had, either by office hours or emails. This ensures learning because it is easy to learn from...

    I love this school! It is currently October and still pretty hot, and the humidity can get pretty bad, but it is a really nice school! I am in the honors college so I am getting the best of both worlds: a great education and a great campus!

    UNCW is the most laid back and beautiful campus I have visited. The surrounding area is amazing, with tons of fun stuff to do in your free time. All of the professors I have met are really intelligent, kind, and helpful.

    I just visited this school with my family and was very impressed. It felt like home walking around. I loved hearing about the academic programs, but really wished I saw the recreation area.

    The campus is very pretty and only 5 minutes from the beach (that's always an added bonus). Being a school of around 14,000 they have plenty of classes that allowed me to be able to attain the schedule that I wanted for my first semester. Also they are even able to offer online summer courses for students like myself who are from a different state.

    UNCW is the perfect place for someone who wants a bigger pond, but not the ocean. The academics are great and you'll get your money's worth for your education. Students here are the best- friendly and outgoing, so you're sure to make life-long friends.

    UNCW is a medium sized school that caters to a population that consists of students more interested at being near a beach than excelling in a college environment. The instructors are varied and skilled. The campus is in a beautiful setting.
