Unc Wilmington is a nice school compared toAverageEducation
Unc Wilmington is a nice school compared to other universities I have been to. Let me elaborate on what I mean by nice, I mean the campus is treated very well. The faculty and maintenance do a great job at making sure the campus is well kept. Also the faculty does a great job at helping every student. They make sure to not just treat you like a number. Which is great for me because I am used to the one on one attention I have gotten from my high school and community college. Some things that I have noticed from my time being here is:

The students are not friendly. The only students I have gotten along with are transfer students and that is it. Most of the students that are underclassmen are very snotty and do not want to talk to you if they do not know you.

I also noticed that majority of the school does not stay around on the weekends. I don't know where people go but once it hits Friday night people are gone until sunday night. So I'm assuming people end up going back to their hometowns.

The last thing about this school is that they will do anything to screw you over with financial aid and be prepared to pay for things at the bookstore and not be able to return them.Overall, I love the Wilmington area and my teachers at UNC Wilmington but if it was up to me to go to a more down to earth school, I would.

There are a lot of bad reviews onQuite BrightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
There are a lot of bad reviews on here about UNCW, but I love going to school here. A lot of people have complained about how close minded the people are here, but this is not necessarily true. As a gay individual who stands out more so than others, I do not feel judged or unwanted here. I am only a freshman, however, I have enjoyed my time here so far. The teachers are great and actually care about you, the students are nice and kind, and everything else about this school makes me glad that I chose it over UNC, ASU, and Elon.

One of the good things about the schoolQuite BrightNursing
One of the good things about the school is it's not too big but it's not too small either. The teachers are very helpful and well educated. We're located near the beach which is always nice especially for beach blast. It's a celebration before we start classes with lots of free stuff. One of the bad things is the lack of diversity on campus. There aren't a lot of minority students and the population is mainly white christian students.
