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.

Facilities are very clean! Food is pretty good. But management is below par. The management here definitely needs some work, as they can be extremely frustrating and tedious! Sometimes the people in student services also show very little consideration for the students as well.
Very Diverse! Great little community surrounding school. Engaging and interested faculty who love to become personal and one-to-one with students as much as possible. School provides a "homey" feel and has something for everyone. Many clubs and activities, including yoga and dance classes after school that can help students feel welcome and included.
