UNC is a great undergraduate institution. I enjoyed the four years I spent being able to truly discover who I am, what my morals are, and what I would like to do with my life. The challenging factors of UNC include, primarily, the lack of diversity on the campus. While admissions rates regarding marginalized identity based students is on the rise, UNC fails to harbor safe spaces for those who hold those characteristics. All things considered, I would not trade the four years I spent at UNC for anything. I ultimately made magnificent friends, and learned a lot about myself in the process. UNC is on the up and up, and I cannot wait to see where it goes. Go Bears!
Review University of Northern Colorado
So far, I have immensely enjoyed the University of Northern Colorado. The professors have been driven to teach, and the majority(There's always a few who don't!) of the student's are willing to learn. Music can be heard 24/7-much to the neighbors dismay-from the Frazier Hall of Music, and meetings are always in session discussing the current state of the economy during business hours at the Montfort School of Business. The community is always welcoming discussion, and is constantly trying to improve itself. All in all, an excellent campus for everyone!
My best experiences from this university come from my on-campus life and relationships with professors. All professors I've met have been exceptionally eager to help students perform their best, and always make themselves available for providing help. On-Campus housing is pretty great, some of the best friends I'll ever know have come from on-campus living! We are currently experiencing lots of upgrades around campus.
