Student & Graduate Reviews (17)
This was an amazing school. I double majored here and loved both departments, who became like family. I was invited to go to Istanbul with my religious studies department and they were able to help finance the trip through scholarships. Without it, I would have never had the opportunity. UNCG was the best experience of my life. The campus is friendly. People are laid back. It was a feel good place to be.
Hello, I would like to begin by saying attending the University of North Carolina at Greensboro has been an experience that I would share with anyone. In May of 2018, I will be graduating with a BA degree in Sociology concentrating in Criminology. I intend to further my education and earn a PhD in Forensic Psychology. Has UNCG prepared me for this goal? First, as a student you must recognize that you must be self-productive and actively involve yourself in the curricular opportunities to get the best out of your education. The UNCG Sociology department has professors who are genuinely passionate about their classes. The support from the professors is evident, however majority of them challenge you to be active and learn outside of class settings. I transferred from a community college after one year and all of my credits transferred perfectly. I recommend that you routinely meet with the advisors in the sociology department and career services for greater support of your pursuit in a degree in Sociology! -Good luck
UNCG is a very diverse institution with excellent faculty, plenty of research opportunities and a vibrant student life. Faculty care about their students and are very interested in their well-being and academic progress. Not only does UNCG offer excellent undergraduate and graduate programs, it also has a great sports community.
I greatly appreciated and enjoyed the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for many reasons. Working in the psychology department has been absolutely amazing because of the constant support from all of the faculty and staff. Everyone at this college is very respectful of everyone else and is truly willing to help others without fuss. I have greatly enjoyed the environment because it is a very diverse college.
The Sociology program at UNCG is full of caring, compassionate, diverse, and intelligent professors. I've learned so much about how the world is interconnected globally, the social interactions that underlie all social change, and gained great research, analysis, and sociological writing skills. The professors are expects in their particular field of study and constantly try to get students involved in the community. They also push you to travel abroad, whether it is a semester or summer program, professors at UNCG know how important it is to travel and experience other cultures. It greatly enhances your understanding of how social structures shape life and the global society as a whole.
UNCG was a wonderful choice for me because of the proximity to my home, and for the wonderful campus. I was able to work a full-time job while receiving my degree and continue to live at home, the next city over, in order to save money. Being a part of the UNC college system is great because all of these schools are widely known and accepted as giving a great education. I would definitely choose UNCG again based on price, the level of education given, and the layout of the campus. It's very approachable and is easy to navigate on foot. I actually didn't drive to school and just rode buses to get to all of my classes. I spent $25/month on a PART student monthly bus pass, which in turn probably saved me over $1,000 on gas and parking at school. I definitely suggest this as an option if you are commuting.
UNCG was a great environment for growing and learning. I felt a sense of community the entire time I was there, even when I lived off campus. There are tons of student groups, so everyone seemed to have a place that they fit in. The campus is beautiful and Greensboro has most of the benefits of a city without being overwhelming. I had a wonderful experience and would definitely make the same choice again.
This program helped to facilitate my official capacity as an art educator k-12. I am a firm believer in what I am doing as an art educator in specific, as well as a childhood educator in a more general sense. As a matter of fact, I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in New York City. I am a licensed and certified Art Educator in Brooklyn. I am currently teaching art at a middle school here in Midwood. As a matter of fact, I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in New York City. I intend getting a dual certification and licensure. What, you may ask, is my main focus for this, my second degree? Why Childhood Education, of course! See you in the classroom! Sincerely, D.H.L.
I was able to receive a full scholarship for the time that I was at the school through a combination of academics and need based merit. As for working with the financial aid off, NEVER call them. The call lines are always busy, but if you email, they get back within an hour usually and solve whatever problems you have. As for professors, they challenge their students to really think about the material, and if you go to them for help, they really take the time to meet with the students. Not only that, but they will also go beyond to help with internships, future jobs, etc. If you are in the club for your major, you often get the opportunity to do a monthly hangout with your professors whether it's bowling, beer tastings, or afternoon teas. Movie nights are a popular activity for the major-associated clubs, and often the professors like to join in. As for social life, there seems to be a club or organization for everything. The campus itself hosts free events every weekend for the students and several throughout the week. UNCG has a lot of access to entertainment. It is across the street from the Greensboro Coliseum where big name singers and sports teams visit regularly. I graduated back in 2013, and I worked in my major field for the past few years. However, now I have decided to return to UNCG in order to pursue a higher degree, and I still have no regrets with my choice.
Rather small university in the UNC system, allegedly not as good as Chapel Hill. Easy to establish personal relationship with professors who are in general available for office hours and out-of-the-classroom consultations. They should invest more in Liberal Arts if they truly believe, as they say, that a career in LA pays off.
