UNCP has a small-college feel with connections to a larger university system. The campus is expanding and growing larger, but the personal touch that you receive as a student hasn't changed. The professors learn your names, as class sizes cap at about 30 for popular general education courses. You feel a connection to your classes, your campus, and the community. There isn't much to do outside of the campus activities, but there are plenty of ways to get involved on campus and to volunteer in the community. The rich history of the Lumbee tribe is proudly displayed, and UNCP is home to the Museum of the Southeast Indian, which features artifacts, art, and cultural programs on the Lumbee tribe as well as other tribes living in the American Southeast.
UNCP is a great place to get a solid and personal education.
