Get used to stairs. They're everywhere!
Have an open mind. If you're not from the area, you will come to UNC Asheville and have a culture shock. There are many unique people here that I for sure was not used to.
you should definitely be sure you want to go here. unca is a unique campus with all sorts of unique people. to enjoy living and learning here, you have to have an open mind, and be willing to let it become even more opened than it already is.
Rachel from Roaring River, NC
Be yourself and do not take too many or too little credit hours the first semester. Also, find out how to use the bus and taxi system. It is really helpful knowing how to get downtown or get home.
Amanda from Southern Pines, NC
Don't come to Asheville expecting everything to be tough and strict. The atmosphere is softer and less abrasive than that of a typical college. The authority figures here expect you to look after yourself rather than them constantly telling you what you should and shouldn't be doing. If you prefer to move at your own pace with only the guidance of due dates and your GPA, then UNCA is for you. Expect to walk around a lot, as Asheville is a city of health-junkies, and don't come live on campus unless you enjoy a certain amount of nature and cold winters.
Teagan from Asheville, NC
Be ready to work, but you are certainly getting your money's worth.
Joshua from Waynesville, NC
I would take a tour of the campus to see if it's a good fit. While there, be sure to ask students walking around what they think of the school. Also, try and meet with a professor in your major to ask questions about the curriculum and opportunities they have for students.
Solomon from Asheville, NC
If you're not comfortable with extreme progressiveness, you might want to pass this school by. Also, if you're not white, be aware that the population is rather saturated with whiteness. The saturation is counter-balanced by the progressiveness of general public opinion, but, the lack of racial diversity is certainly striking.
