    College is an amazing step in your life that I encourage people to take. College at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke has been amazing. It is a completely different environment. It has been a place for me to make new friends and experience new things. The food is better than what I imagined it to be. Classes are a bit hard at first but like anything else, you get used to it the more you do it. They have something for everyone here to do and enjoy. They have events on campus quite often, they have clubs you can join, they have basketball courts and gyms, they even have a game room with a bowling alley, ping pong tables, game systems, and pool tables! My experience at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke has been amazing and I urge any and everybody to come and see what the Braves are all about!

    The experience at UNCP is phenomenal! There are numerous resources on campus and off campus for in-state and out of state students, to be successful. They help you in ALL categories that college students need help in such as, housing, job/money opportunities, tutoring, centers to help with assignments, food banks, plenty of fun activities, & shuttle buses for traveling off campus to local stores. Only thing I would like to see improved, to some point, is just more parking areas. Overall, this university is a well-rounded, filled with diversity & outstanding professors that actually help you.
    I really loved the open and welcoming atmosphere the whole campus held. The professors were engaging and thoughtful of our circumstances and the cost of tuition was great for me! All thinks to the NC promise that the school adopted, I was able to attend college.
