The sport most attended is definitely basketball by locals, alumni, and students! Though overall our school spirit is subpar and could definitely be better. Also being a student athlete my sport track and field is hugely underappreciated. The one thing the school needs to work on is advertising diffenet athletic events better and maybe the school spirit would go up.
The university of North Carolina at Pembroke is a small homey school that seems so small when you come to visit it, but when you get here you see a new face everyday. The classes are fairly small and the professors are willing to help majority of the time. They are excited about what they teach and very passionate. If you portray these same qualities through your learning then they will help you as much as they can! To fail on this campus you might have to actually try. You might make a bad grade here or there because of you or the professors mistakes but it is only a handful that will not care about your success for they already have their degree. Even still if one professor isn't willing to help you can go to a professor that doesn't even know you exist and they will help you as if you were their child attempting to do good in the classroom. The only fault of this school is the bareness outside of the campus. We have many food places but not a lot of major stores or recreational places to hangout, but in any college you go to it is what you make it!
If you're an incoming freshman or transferring from another college, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke is a great choice. My love for UNC-Pembroke is remarkable; Even though it's in a small campus in a small town, you can still compare it to other major UNC school systems. It's one of the most ethnically diverse campuses in North Carolina. UNC-Pembroke has a beautiful campus with very nice residence halls and campus apartments. It's easy to make friends because you'll always see people you know and recognize. However, I gave a four star because of the location; if you want to go shopping or do fun activities, you'll have to drive to Lumberton or Fayetteville to do so. I also wish the had more dining opportunities on campus, but overall, I love my school and can't imagine being anywhere else.
