About

See what students say:

Academics

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a big school yet students “[don’t] feel like a number.” They find their professors are often “incredibly personable” and that they give advice “about finding internships and other opportunities to network.” They’re a great resource for getting “all the information and guidance [students] need to succeed.” The Lloyd International Honors College “has an emphasis on … experiential learning,” including visits to nearby Guilford forest where students “[learn] about the important points of the Underground Railroad.” As standout offerings, students comment on the “superb online programs” offered by the school as well as the “great art, [music], and science programs.” “Many programs are oriented toward student help and health” to make sure students don’t fall behind. “I think the greatest strength of UNCG is that they are very good at [pointing] students in the right direction,” says a student. They continue: “For example, [if] you approach your advisors … with a problem, they will show up with a big list of possible solutions.”

Student Body

The student body at UNC Greensboro is “racially, economically, [and] ideologically diverse.” “The political viewpoint … is [majorly] liberal,” says a student. “What makes UNCG unique is our strong acceptance of the others of society,” the student continues. Students note that the school’s integrated programs “get all levels of students working together.” The student body here is one with a “huge music/theater concentration but also a mix of athletes and fraternity/sorority members.” As a “minority-serving institution, … the culture is rich and eclectic,” and students say that it’s “one of the most LGBTQ+ friendly campuses.” One student puts it this way: “It is rare that I walk into a class of students [who] look like myself.” They don’t see this as a drawback, though, and say that it makes the campus feel “lively” and “diverse in many ways.”

Campus Life

“There is always something to do on this beautiful campus,” boasts a student of UNCG. During their study time, plenty sit in the “Salad Bowl, [which is] a huge garden space with really huge trees canopying over top.” Some get “geeky, fun, and athletic” with the Quidditch Club, which a student calls “the highlight of UNCG.” With “a pool, lazy river, and sauna along with all of the athletic equipment … and group fitness classes,” students call the recreation center “insane”—but they mean that in the best possible way. “People eat on Tate Street, [which has] very popular off-campus eateries,” and take “day trips to Piney Lake for paddle boarding.” Located in the center of North Carolina, “just a few hours east or west [of the school] will take you to the coast or the mountains if you need a change of scenery.” On weekends, “many people go to clubs like Limelight or Arizona Pete’s,” and “there is a jazz night at Tate Street Coffee House…, which is a really fun thing.”
