Review University of North Carolina at Asheville
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.
The University of North Carolina at Asheville has a unique, diverse community. Classes are challenging and rigorous. Professors across campus, especially in the Psychology and Health & Wellness departments, are brilliant. There is plenty to get involved in on campus from literary clubs and political groups to sports and academic organizations. On campus job and research opportunities are vast. In fact, UNCA has a service-learning curriculum meaning all students will participate in some type of community service as an amendum to certain courses. I have enjoyed the service learning projects I have been a part of. The food on campus is good too. I prefer Rosetta's Kitchen. There they have scrumptious organic and vegan selections. UNCA is a small school with about 3,800 students. I personally love the small classes and community atmosphere that come with that. Just walking around campus I always see someone I know whether it be a student or professor.
