What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
UNCW is everything I could have possibly wanted. I love the school, the classes, and I love the teachers. I had a bit of a rough start, but with the help of Advisors and the Intervention program I've gotten my GPA doubled.
Alaina from Mooresville, NC
A noun is defined as a person, place, or thing. The University of North Carolina - Wilmington can be compared to the perfect noun. The instructors who teach there are polite and truly care about you and your grades; Wilmington has an ideal location, the beach; there are always things to do at Wilmington no matter what is of interest to the individual.
