Great places to eat with tons of variety, all within close proximity to campus.

I love Wilmington's restaurants. There's not a TON of variety, but there's plenty for four years. Indochine and Double Happiness are great if you're into Thai, Vietnamese or Chinese food; there are Italian options like Taste of Italy and Elizabeth's; and there are even a few Indian restaurants. Whatever you're interested in, Wilmington probably has something that'll work.

Health & Safety:
I always feel safe on UNCW's campus because of the sheer number of security boxes available. If you don't want to walk alone at night, all you have to do is press the button and campus police will be there within 30 seconds to escort you. However, there's been a lot of crime near campus lately, so it's always best to take advantage of that after dark if you have far to walk. Or stay in groups! It's safer.

Wilmington has plenty of restaurants and bars, but not much that's open 24/7. UNCW is in the center of everything, though, so that's not much of a problem. It's close to everything--even Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach.

The nightlife is a lot of fun, but only if you are 21 years of age. I am coming from studying in Spain and it is so difficult to adjust here. Do NOT drink and drive because the police with catch you.

The campus shuttle here on campus is free which means you can go anywhere on campus, but also the other buses driving through Wilmington are free as well with your UNCW OneCard.There are buses in Wilmington and on campus that can take you anywhere in little time. Also, there are more than enough buses for the same routes, which makes it easier to get to where you need to go on time.

Transportation is not our strong suite. It really isn't necessary around campus. I've never had to use it , but I've heard it's unreliable.
College Junior 2013-04-27T15:52:11Z
The city of Wilmington is one of the best parts of the school. It's not a big city, but it's big enough. There is always something to do! The beach is only 10 min from campus, so who doesn't like that?!? There is also a historic downtown area by the river and several shopping areas. I love this city!
College Junior 2013-04-27T15:48:19Z
There is hardly any diversity on the campus. With what diversity there is though, students are very accepting and open.

I majored in Communication Studies. Went in thinking I was going to be a Chemistry major and just kind of ended up going this whole new route. It all worked out for the best. I developed a weakness into a strength. I learned so much, I gained an insight into communication on an interpersonal level, in public speech, rhetoric, collaborative negotiation, conflict management, interculturally, and so much more. I believe that these classes should be required for everyone.

Campus buses will take you to certain bus stops near the campus. I only used the one that circulates campus, although the horrible circular roadway design makes it pretty useless because it takes just as long to take the bus from one end of campus to the other as it would be to walk it. The only reasons to actually do this are: you don't have an umbrella (it rains a lot there) or you are lazy.
College Sophomore 2013-04-19T04:22:08Z
There are a lot of options for freshmen to choose from. They are average living areas with their positives (being close to get to know people) and negatives (being so close you feel so claustrophobic).

Health & Safety:
There are so many alarm stations that you know you can get to one in case of an emergency. Also, the response time is very quick and effective.
College Sophomore 2013-04-19T04:01:58Z
There could be more dining options available on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T14:07:40Z
The cafeteria at UNCW it is getting a bit too crowded although you can always find a seat if you look hard enough. Ususally I go at times when I know there are not going to be that many people.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T13:58:45Z
The computar lab at UNCW is always crowded at luch time, midterms and finals, but besides that, you can always find a spot. UNCW uses i-print which allows you to print anywhere on campus with your one card. Your one card is your UNCW ID card in which you can put money into and use it to get something from the snack machines or print.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T13:54:39Z
UNCW is awsome. The science program here is really good especially marine science. Most people tranfer from other states just to get in at UNCW because we have high tech equipment. The school also offers a lot of research opportuniites in different fields and if you have work study from fafsa, you can apply as a lab assistant and get paid. There are also different kinds of clubs you can join like tri-beta. Its a biology club which really looks good on your student resume.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T13:38:57Z
I don't live on campus so I would not know much about how the school is at night.
College Junior 2013-04-16T18:42:32Z
Everyone I know has there own laptop but it's not really necessary. The library has laptop checkouts that lasts 4 hours. Also there are printing stations scattered around campus if there is anything you need to print and at the beginning of each semester the school gives you money to use for printing. The wireless access is protected by a password but everyone gets the password on the first day.
College Junior 2013-04-16T18:31:42Z
I do plan to have an internship this coming summer. The internship will give me an opportunity to see what it's like to be a physical therapist and also will help me knockout some hours required for graduate school. Since I have already secured my internship, I am excited to start!
College Junior 2013-04-16T18:22:50Z
As an Exercise Science, it wasn't hard to find other people with the same career goals as me. The school that the major is housed in is really smalls and all of the professors and advisors are helpful.
College Sophomore 2013-04-11T22:04:32Z
Who wouldn't love having Wrightsville Beach 5 miles away and a beautiful downtown on the water?
College Sophomore 2013-04-11T20:40:02Z
Parking can be a hassle, especially if you live off campus. You WILL get a ticket if you park in the areas you aren't supposed to, but you can look online to see the times where parking is allowed and where it's restricted 24/7. Unfortunately when parking is allowed many places fill up fast and it's hard to find a spot.
College Sophomore 2013-04-11T20:26:31Z
The transportation is pretty decent. The shuttles come and take you around campus on different routes, or out onto the main road, South College, which cuts straight through Wilmington. The only tedious thing is that it's a little confusing at first to figure out which shuttle goes where and when to be there, but once you get that down it's really useful!
College Junior 2013-04-10T18:04:53Z
To be in a specific program at school is very demanding. It requires a lot of hard work and time. Personally, I love the chemistry program I am in right now. I have loved chemistry since high school and I can never ge enough of it, so the fact that is consumes most of my time doesn't bother me. The workload is intense, but the facilites provided are immaculate and faciliate what is needed to be done.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
