What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
To do well in your classes make sure you don't get behind. Read chapters before, attend every lecture and review afterwards. Procrastinating and waiting a week before a test to study is a death sentence. Try to find a good balance between socializing and studying. Make sure to do both, but not only one or the other.
Brittany from Greeley, CO
My tips for prospective students would be to prepare ahead of time for what may come, and to visit the campus, as they may be able to feel the community vibe that UNC carries.
David from Parker, CO
When attending UNC, focus on your L.A.C. classes. Remember that as an incoming student majors don't have to be decided yet. Once on campus, learn the buildings, and where they are located. ONLY USE THE TUNNEL DURING THE DAY! Make friends that are the same age, but also make ones that are older, because they have already spent loads of time trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle together that you are only beginning to sort out. Finally, have fun, but be responsible, and only do things that you are comfortable with.
Alyssa from Burlington, CO
The Denver campus is nice if you don't want to live in Greeley or away from home but still want to major in ECE, Elementary Ed, or Special Ed. You work in the morning and go to school in the afternoon. Compared to most colleges and Greeley, you will be way ahead of the game, already working in schools, knowing if this is for you or not, having experience, and knowing how to write a full IEP.
Samantha from Centennial, CO
Do not sign up for 8 AM classes that take place across campus.
Sarah from Westminster, CO
If you are looking for a medium size college with great classes and variety and awesome people, the University of Northern Colorado is the place to go. The campus is the perfect size and it is beautiful.
Jessica from Greeley, CO
--At orientation, make sure you plan your classes somewhat close together. Make sure the buildings your class are on the same side of UNC.

--You will be told this over and over, but do not take 18 credits your first semester, unless you might have had lots of AP/IB classes. I am taking 18 credits as a first semester freshman, and I am surviving only because I've taken IB and AP classes.

--Get involved with the community! Volunteer work is always the best thing on resume's and this is especially true well into college and beyond.
Female, Biology/Secondary Education major
Try to take any AP or IB classes or any concurrent enrollment courses because they will accept plenty of credit! It can get you out of the first 2 years of your LAC's. Look into it! Also really research where you want to live. Decide which side of campus will suit you more, which accommodations each dorm has that you like/want and which is financially better for you!
Elicia from Westminster, CO
If you are looking for a school for performing arts, teaching, or nursing, look no further. That is not to say that the other programs are not top notch as well. UNC is a close-knit community that will help you reach whatever your goal maybe.
