This school is so awesome because it a small, art-based school that appreciates quirks and individuality. I love the city of Asheville too; the town is so eclectic and colorful. The student-teacher ratio is great, and I am close with about 75% of my professors.

unca is a wonderful place. the environment is friendly and conducive to learning and the people are great. attending here will give you as many opportunities to learn outside the classroom as it does in the classroom.
