The University of North Carolina at Asheville offers a small campus experience. All school building are fairly close to each other and class sizes are about 20 people.
I love how open and connected the environment on campus is. Everything is very inclusive and allows for a more wholesome college experience. The surrounding areas such as the parks and the mountain trails only add to the atmosphere and create both small town and home type of environment for all students. The teachers especially aid in this by helping all students in any way they can.
Considerate and tolerant of all. Faculty/staff are supportive. Campus is breathtaking. Academics seem to be excellent so far. I'm not in any athletic department so I can not attest to that. The campus is easy to navigate and the food is nutritious and balanced.

UNCA is a very diverse and inclusive school, from what I’ve seen everyone is given an equal opportunity to be themselves, unapologetically. Coming from a background in very small schools, I was elated when I found UNCA, which helped me stay true to my small school roots. Although some of the initial getting in proved a little tricky, the staff were always willing and able to answer my questions, providing me with their best answers when they had them, and directing me to others when they didn’t. So far the students have been courteous and gracious and overall super welcoming. All I can say is that for me UNC Asheville is a wonderful fit, and I can’t wait to continue to learn from such a tight knit and caring college community.
UNC Asheville is a great school with everything that anyone could need. The focus on Liberal Arts through all courses is a huge benefit to the livelihood of the college.
I REALLY LOVE THIS SCHOOL. I would definitely recommend it to others. It’s really close knit and everyone knows everyone. The professors are really nice and understanding. The professors are also really easy to access.
University of North Carolina at Asheville is a great school. During my Freshmen year I had a lot of new experiences, and have made many new friends. The class sizes are small, and the professors are extremely fair. I also had a great relationship with my Freshmen Academic Adviser. She really cared, and always took the time to listen when I needed to talk.
Its great for those who love arts and good academics but if your are into a sports scene this school lacks in it. Sporting teams do well with the little they receive also the party scene in non existent but the bars in town are amazing.
The Professors really care about their students. Since the University is small, its easy for students and professors to maintain a close relationship. The clubs are very active thanks to outgoing students and everyone is encouraged to reach for the stars.
I love the openness within the community as well as the community oriented way of doing things around campus.
The people, students and faculty, are not fun to be around and its a really weird environment. I just went to this school because it was close enough for me to commute but I would not recommend it to anyone who is conservative.
This is for the food. The niche rating is too low, trust me. We visited the campus with our son. We've eaten at several university cafeterias in a few different states and this was by far the best for healthy, fresh and tasty food. Why the Niche rating is an A- is mind boggling to me, because the food is most definitely an A+. I've eaten at other A+ rated cafeterias and this definitely meets the criteria. The chicken was fresh and some of the best I've ever had. The salad bar was great and they even had a selection of spices, I put rock salt on my chicken. Knowledge of allergies was also top notch. All I can guess is that the people rating the food on niche haven't eaten at any other universities!
I really love the community between students and professors here, particularly in the Interdisciplinary and Modern Languages departments. However, what I don't see here is racial diversity. The school prides itself on being diverse but demographically the school lacks ethnic diversity.
I would love to see more diversity! The small school vibe here is great. It's close to downtown, and Asheville is an actual city, not just a college town. There are many activities to do on campus as well.
It's a small school that is slowly expanding. You have great relationships with professors and they really just want to help.
The University of North Carolina at Asheville has been a great place for me to experience college. The entire staff has been nothing short of incredible, while the campus itself is absolutely beautiful. I have managed to learn a substantial amount about things not only within my own major, but about others and the world around us. One substantial thing that I really cherish about UNC Asheville is the fact that the class sizes are smaller than the classes on most other campuses, and with that, you get more one-on-one time with you professor which is very beneficial in many different ways.
UNCA is an open-minded small liberal arts college. I've met a lot of good people here and since the campus is so small it's very friendly. Almost all of the professors I've had have been helpful, friendly, intelligent, etc. The campus isn't too big so its easy to get around places and the dorms aren't too bad. The only problem with UNCA is the food but its close enough to many grocery markets and downtown Asheville with many good restaurants.

I am from the Asheville area, so it just made sense that I attend UNCA. I really like the small classroom sizes and more personal interaction with professors and students. The campus is incredibly diverse welcoming people from all walks of life. What I would like to see changed is how at least some of the professors are not very tolerant of political and economic views outside of their own. I would like to see professors actually listen and have a reasonable debate with students who don't share their viewpoints instead of just shutting off any conversation about the difference in views.
I love UNCA! A beautiful campus with diverse, talented, and intelligent students and staff.

UNCA has wonderful facilities that are open to the students for use to help further their studies, or just to relax with friends.

The teachers are wonderful and very helpful, I feel that I have learned so much in such a short amount of time on one of the most beautiful campuses.

The general mood of campus is uplifting, it makes my day to walk on campus. There are so many activities and clubs for students to join. Clubs and activities offered by UNCA were very helpful in the transfer transition to university.
Beautiful local area and campus. Class sizes are good for learning. Resources for athletes are excellent. Food is good. Dorms are above average.
