UNCW is a beautiful and asthetically pleasing campus that I have called home for the past year. The professors are knowledgeable and extremely helpful as well as the RAs and people in power. Also being so close to the beach is a huge plus.
Allison from Raleigh, NC
UNC at Wilmington's beautiful campus makes everyone feel safe and welcomed. The professors are excellent and really care about what the students are learning and how they can improve. It was easy to adjust, grow, and experience everything colleges offer.
