The weather can be extreme in the summer (extremely humid) and sometimes get pretty cold, but the winters are mild and the spring and fall are beautiful on campus.

Computers are easily accessible at the William Randall Library. Printers are strategically placed throughout, making printing fast and efficient. UNCW's tech lab also provides assistance with virus protection and other computer issues you may have with your laptop.

Buses and Bikes – Good bus system. Easier to use then to find parking for a car. Bikes are the easiest as you can take them on campus

Life's a Beach – UNC Wilmington has fit me perfectly. There is always something to do on weekends whether you want to go to the beach with friends, hit up the amazing shopping both at the beach or the quaint historic downtown district, or maybe just stroll along the river walk. You must work hard, but professors know you by name and are very helpful with anything you need.

Bars and Clubs – There are many places for students to go. There are bars and clubs for 18+ and also some (especially those by the beach) for 21+. There is always somewhere to go on Thursday nights so whether you are 18 or 22, you will find a great place to hang out.

The Housing on campus is all relatively new. There is an older dorm but in no ways are any of the living spaces less than satisfactory. Not only that but the cost of living on campus is so affordable (especially for the convenience) and very comparable to living off campus. I really don't know why anyone would live off campus unless they really needed to save money by getting a very cheap, not very attractive, apartment. In my on-campus apartment, I have solid wood cabinets, chorion countertops, and soild wood furniture. It comes fully furnished, but there is room to bring your own things to add your own personal touch to it. Also, everything is included. Meaning, water, electricity, trash, wifi, and cable (including HBO and 4 MTV channels) are included in your payments. Overall, it's a great place to live for what you will be paying.

Dining halls suck. Wag is horrible and the other one is mediocre. The Hawks Nest is decent depending on where you go, but expensive and you can only use your meal plan during certain hours and then only on certain items. There's a Dunkin Donuts on campus that people seem to like a lot. Once you live off campus you mostly stop eating on campus though. Too expensive and not great options.

Vast majority are middle class white kids with slightly above average GPAs and test scores. A disproportionately high number of blondes. There are a couple of blacks, fewer of other minorities. "Acceptance" is a little funny. A good number of the student body are pretty "red" and conservative, and the other half are the standard young white middle class college liberals dabbling in hippy-love and obsessed with professing an interest in multiculturalism and political correctness in a vastly undiverse demographic bubble. There is however a brand new LGBTQA resource office, which has been loudly criticized by a particularly inflammatory conservative professor in the Soc and Crim department who likens himself to Ann Coulter. Overall though, it's definitely one of the least politically active or even cognizant university campuses in the state.

Cookout is a burger joint located right off campus. People walk there a lot. It's good fast food, but don't be surprised when you begin gaining weight. Nikkis is a decent sushi place just down Racine right off campus and is also good. Fuzzy Peach is the best frozen yogurt in town and is right next to Nikkis. There are a few other good places in Wilmington but they aren't that close to the university and are frequented more by locals than students.

The computers are fine. A little outdated, a little slow. The network is iffy every now and then but mostly okay. Iprint doesn't work for macs. The computers in the library are pretty much always taken and it's loud now that they made it a "common area" anyway.

The greek life at UNCW is awesome! They are all so involved in campus life and everyone is friendly.

Tons of Options. There are many dining options to choose from around the campus. There is a wide variety of different types of foods and most of them of decently priced.

I love UNCW, it's a great school. I have had teachers and faculty help me with every step. I would definitely do it all over again.
Recent Alumnus 2012-02-16T18:15:24Z
Greek life is not that important to me. I do know that there is a Greek life on campus and the students really enjoy it.

Off campus housing is great. There are a lot of selections and people are very cooperative and informative.

Wonderful and Sunny – Wilmington is pretty moderate as far as the weather goes. Its nice and warm in the summer and it never gets super cold.

UNCW - Fabulous – Great campus, wonderful academic programs well known for excellence, helpful and plentiful student resources, and not to mention the beach!

UNCW Life – The University of North Carolina at Wilmington has a beautiful campus. From the magnificent architecture to the landscape, this college has it covered. The library is one of the main focal points on campus. Everyone goes here to get the quietness and concentration they need for their classes. The fraternities and sororities are extremely active with the communities as well as with the rest of the students. People line up to rush them and it is a fun time every year when they chose their new recruits. UNCW is a great place to further your education and it is only ten minutes away from the beach. This is the only place I will every consider for my education!

Parking passes are super expensive but if you live on-campus the spots are always available, even for freshman.

On Campus Apartments for Upperclassman – After freshman year, most students either live off-campus or in the on-campus apartments. The on-campus apartments are nice and you can generally be guaranteed on-campus housing. The tri-house dorms are the nicest for freshman.

Creative Writing – UNCW has a nationally renowned Creative Writing program. Once you take the specified number of pre-requisites in your desired area of study (fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction) you apply to the program with a portfolio. Many students don't take the application process seriously, and are surprised when they don't get through. Don't make that mistake! It's worth it in the end for the great professors, who really know their stuff.

Guys & Girls:
Southern Good Looks – It's true what they say about the south - the guys are extremely attractive, and the girls are too. Most people are tan, skinny, and blonde - the atypical beach look.

Housing Rocks! I'm in my second year, and I'm already in apartment-style housing. It only gets better from here; next year, I'll have a double bed and a pool right outside my door. For what you pay, the housing options are fantastic if you can get yourself through freshman year!

UNCW- If You Can, Come. UNCW is amazing. It's five miles from the beach, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing, and everyone is there for everyone. Yet at the same time, it provides a solid quality education, with professors willing to work side by side with you, research opportunities for freshmen, a fantastic film department, nation-renowned marine biology department, and manifold opportunities for involvement on campus. I have no regrets about coming here instead of an in-state school like William and Mary, even though it had more prestige.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
