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!

The campus is beautiful and small enough to walk to classes in a reasonable time. People are great and there are a lot of resources for furthering your education. I have been here for two years and the faculty are really caring and want nothing but the best for you. As long as you apply yourself and show that you are serious, they are willing to help in any way they can. People might say that the cafeteria food is terrible, but we have it pretty good here. There are other schools out there that don’t have nearly as much as the cafeteria has to offer here. I absolutely love it here and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!
The University of North Carolina is very diverse. On this campus I have always felt welcomed by every individual I have come in contact with. Some of my teaches I have grown close with and all around it is a pretty good school. I major in biology and one thing I would change is the difficulty level. I make great grades in all other departments and classes, however the science department is overly tough. I struggle each yeah with making a decent grade. I know college is tough work but the amount of stress I get from my science classes I believe could be reduced!
