What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
As a prospective student, your main focus should be on excelling in your academics in high school. Also, your primary goal as a college student should be to obtain your degree; therefore, any other personal goals or plans that you have while attending any university should be secondary.
Shantell
I highly recommend to completed their FAFSA application ASAP. This truly helps you if you need financial aid. UNCG is great by giving away scholarships, but the student must show that they want it.
Christian from Fayetteville, NC
The ideal school for a rising musician or actor, also a strong nursing school. Low budget option for undergrad years for someone planning on a grad degree after.
Ian from Durham, NC
Apply for a living and learning dorm. They are a great way to make friends and make the transition into college life easier.
Kiri from Jefferson, MD
As sketchy as they sound, live in a high-rise dorm!! The people there are really nice, and it's a good way to meet other freshman. Most of the hall style dorms are upper classmen, but the high-rises are usually all incoming freshman who want to have fun!
Kasey from Mint Hill, NC
DON'T TAKE ANY ONLINE COURSES!!!
If you live close by and can afford it I would highly recommending spending the extra cash or scholarship on dorming!!! It is a great experience
Javier from High Point, NC
Be prepared to deal with a parking nightmare, one of the first things you will learn should you attend, is that the parking situation here is the only bad thing about UNCG.
Michael from Summerfield, NC
1)If you are worried about making friends join a residential college. There are many at UNCG. FYE, Warren-Ashby, Live Learn and many more. They provide opportunties for making friends and also gives you more access to help for classes.
2)If you are having problems with your roommate talking to them is the best way.
3)If you are struggling there are always someone to help you in every subject. Don't be afraid to ask.
4)Get involved any way you can. It looks great on your resume, it gives you a chance to make a difference on campus and you can make many friends.
Brittany from Welcome, NC
Your study habits from high school are no good in college! Find out what kind of environment in which you study best (ie. noisy and inspiring, quite and dull, a library, a coffee shop, outside, or in solitude). Knowing the environment in which you can concentrate and focus is a valuable tip because it will be where you go when you know you need to get something done! Also, join organizations, club sports, explore academic clubs: they help to point you in the direction of finding out what kind of career, lifestyle, and interests best fit you.
Charlene from Colfax, NC
Generally speaking, if one is planning on attending any college, whether it be UNCG or others, they need to be prepared for the work load. It is not impossible or scary, but it does not take long for a GPA to suffer due to laziness.
