University of North Carolina at Asheville Reviews
My school is almost perfect! I didn't even tour it, and it is perfect! The food is super healthy, there are plenty of free fitness options, movie nights every Friday, lots of activities on Thursdays from 11-1, and a school that focuses on safety and acceptance. The cops are super nice, and the staff in general is! The only thing I wish would improve is parking. They are working on a new residence hall/dormitory area but we really need more parking for the people we already have.
I graduated from the Classics Department in 2011--now going back for a Teaching License--and had nothing but the best experience with my major. The professors are caring, wildly knowledgeable in their area, and present challenging authors for translation with a depth of interpretation one would expect from a book. As with most, I liked the other departments less. Some of the requirements are useless in a larger view. Many aspects are regulated excessively into administrative quagmire, much to the disgust of the majority of professors (who want to teach, not fill out forms for five different administrative divisions). I would like to see a respectable literary journal begin; money-allocation for the arts and events (as opposed to athletics). The English Department needs work though there are standout professors. I came across an “expert” in Century Modernism who didn't know who Louis Zukofsky was. Which is as bad as an "expert" in the History of Psychology being ignorant of Adler.
Asheville is such an amazing and diverse college. The professors know you by name and not a number in their classroom. It doesn't matter that you're religious, nonreligious, of the LGBTQ community, of ethnicity, or anything else because everyone welcomes you with open arms and has nothing but respect. The only downside is that we don't have a ton of great dining options because we are a small campus. We value farm to table eating so fast food is not a big thing on our campus. We're a short walk from downtown Asheville so there are a ton of great off-campus eating options, and fun activities to do on the weekends. The school offers equipment to go canoeing, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, and a bunch of other outdoor activities. We have beautiful 360 mountain views and amazing science and art programs! Getting a job on campus is really easy and it pays well! Go Bulldogs!!
