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...

    A beautiful campus that is very home-y to everyone. Very close to the beach, who wouldn't want to go here?

    Let's admit it- we all are here because of either Wilmington's historic beautiful riverfront downtown, or Wrightsville Beach. Being a Seahawk is amazing, but ultimately you decide how rigorous of socialization you subject yourself to. Although I spent my first semester on the introverted side, I see so many opportunities in the future and like the atmosphere.

    The campus is absolutely gorgeous as well as conveniently located near the beach and anything else you could possibly need. All of my teachers have been great when it comes to helping me through problems and working with my schedule. I have and will continue to recommend this school to all who ask.

    Once you research this school you cant stop. The programs they have here are amazing and the fact that everything is close to campus like the mall, local stores, even the beach makes me feel more comfortable about the town

    The University of North Carolina Wilmington is a great size for someone who wants to see a familiar face walking to class but not know everyone. The atmosphere of UNCW is great, everyone is extremely friendly and helpful in whatever you might need. All of the facilities are great and up to date, you never get bored on campus with the amount of activities it has to offer.

    I have found that UNCW is the perfect school for me in terms of size, people, and location. The classes are worthwhile and interesting and the professors are helpful. There are also so many things offered here in terms of social events/activities, clubs, sports, and so much more.

    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.
