    My favorite part about my experience at UNC Greensboro was the small, community like environment. Everybody knew everybody so it felt like we were all connected. One thing I would like to see change is more compassionate and helpful faculty and staff. During my time at UNCG I have experienced some extremely difficult circumstances, and I've only encountered a handful of staff members who have been helpful and understanding. Other than that I believe it is a quality institution and I have appreciated what my time there has taught me!

    I love UNC Greensboro. I am an undergrad Music Education major at the music school, and I absolutely love it, all of my professors are great and have so much experience in their fields. Everyone there is super supportive and it's overall just a great community. I love that the university as a whole is really supportive and conducive to every student's needs and learning. It's also very diverse, and the faculty is as well, UNCG supports many immigrant students. The attitude of most everyone I have encountered, faculty, and students are there to uplift and educate students to prepare us for future jobs and careers!
    I went to a homecoming at the University of North Carolina Greensboro last year and it was spectacular! They divided us into different group so we could see what it would be like to be in the class of our chosen majors. We were able to talk to the professors and student that were taking that class at the time. Then we headed towards the cafeteria, we encountered many beautiful places on our way there. When we walked into the cafeteria the aroma was amazing, you could smell all of the amazing dishes that the chefs were cooking. There was a lot of spots to chose from but I chose Chinese and my mother chose breakfast. The food was extravagant and had many flavors. After we were finished eating we walked Around the college some more until we found the dorms. They were nice and spacious with great living qualities. We then walked to the meet up spot where the group was at with a big party. They then ended the event for the day. These are the reasons I want to go to UNCG.
