This is my second time going to UNCG to earn my degree in the arts, this time with arts education. This university is constantly changing and accommodating to students of the 21rst century. There are green bikes and scooters on campus for students, there are free charging stations at your convenience. There is always something fun and entertaining going on campus, with clubs, organizations, gallery events, sports, music and plays. My professors are amazing! They will engage you with the very best knowledge and push you beyond your standards to achieve your academic high. You will have a great experience here, very welcoming and excel in your classes!

Ever since I first arrived here at UNCG the professors and other staff have all been extremely welcoming, including the students here. The food options nearby here are amazing especially because of the many different options directly behind campus on tate street. The hall I am in is Reynolds which was recently renovated and is very nice! Classes aren't too hard especially because the professors really do care about you, so all you have to do if your not understanding something is reach out. Overall I am really enjoying the school! The only thing I could say I would like to be worked on are the dining hall options.
In the year and a half that I have been at UNCG, I have never felt alone or too stressed (college always comes with a little stress) when it came down to it. Once I started living on campus I felt welcomed by everyone. They hold events every weekend to make sure that students are able to meet new faces and forget about the homesickness every student starts off with. When it came to classes that I struggled with I never had a reason to say "I can't do this." because the school has many programs to help struggling students. The campus overall is gorgeous!
