I encountered some arrogant professors here, but mostBright
I encountered some arrogant professors here, but most were decent enough. When I attended UNC (detractors call it Univ of No Other Choice), Greeley was a dump and the town smelled from the nearby Swift meat processing plant (They sure didn't put THAT in the brochures!). Nightlife pretty much sucked, except for house parties. Got my car broken into one time and petty theft was common around the university.

I was enrolled at UNC for one academicQuite BrightEducation
I was enrolled at UNC for one academic year where I was miserable. I transferred out and will be attending a new school (CU Boulder) in the fall. Although the people at UNC are friendly and inclusive, the academics is terribly lacking. This school cut, and is in the process of cutting, many foreign language programs such as Russian, German, and French during my one year there. They also cut the History Emphasis for elementary education. The University also offers no religious study courses.I would like to say that I would recommend UNC, because it was a very nice environment and I made life long friends there. Unfortunately, they seem to be more focused on keeping their tuition prices down than the quality of the education they offer.

Greeley is an acquired taste.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Greeley is an acquired taste. A humble town, but full of great things to find. The campus is standard. The education is legit. The cost is effective. The "experience" here is about friends, activities, and studies. Freshman year will be vastly different than years 2, 3, & 4. Don't expect a parade of excitement, just be open minded. It's college.
