"I do NOT recommend this school. Everyone is so liberal and the teachers do not even test you on material they cover in class. In botany, my teacher accused me of buying my plant that I grew for four months. I mean, how ridiculous is that? My house has a lot of light due to all the big windows. I received a D in class just because of my plant. A D............. That was my tipping point when I decided to quit this college and transfer. Also in guitar class, my sister was always late and missed class when I attended every session and he penalized me for her absences, When I went to resolve my issues he told me that its fine and it wont make a big difference on my grade, which dropped it from an A to a B. The classes are way harder then they should be and their grading system is not fair."

"The Sociology program at UNC Asheville provides invaluable attention to individuals and their wellbeing. Professors know every student by name, and class sizes are never larger than 30 students. Furthermore, the liberal arts curriculum allows you to get a holistic perspective, and to approach all disciplines from a more open-minded lens."

"The MLAS program at University of North Carolina Asheville is great for full-time professionals looking to broaden their skill set. I was a teacher at the time and the program gave me great insight to new ways I can bring content into the classroom. My writing skills improved and I learned how interdisciplinary studies can be successfully executed in a classroom setting."

"UNCA offers an outstanding education for a small handful of dollars. The members of the faculty are highly qualified and extremely interesting. Set in Asheville, you cannot find a better education in a more beautiful place. Be prepared to be uplifted!"

"I think attending the University of North Carolina at Asheville has had many benefits to my life. I studied Anthropology and Sociology. I believe that the class material and discussions has allowed me to be more open to learning about other people and other cultures. It has inspired me to travel and to go to graduate school. I am now attending Roosevelt University so that I can get my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I believe that the skills I learned at UNCA has helped me to be empathetic to those who are different from me. This is how I hope to be a more effective counselor in the future. UNCA has a beautiful campus and since the school it is so small, it creates a real sense of community and closeness. It is nice to have some kind of connection with most of your fellow students. Although I do not think Asheville is ethnically diverse, I think it is diverse in may ways. I was able to meet people with different backgrounds and what struck me most was being about to learn about peers who had different views of sexuality and different sexual orientation. I was able to learn so much about gender and transgender issues, topics that are still important in society today. The class sizes are very small as well. I'm glad my classrooms weren't in a big auditorium - we were able to have open discussions and learn about other perspectives and opinions. I highly recommend UNCA to anyone who desires learning in small classrooms and who has a desire to learn about other people."

"College was a great experience. My professors and other students opened my eyes to new opinions and ways of looking at things. I grew a lot during my college years and began to form the opinions that make me who I am today. I developed a lot of my core beliefs and political views during college."

"I loved my college. Class sizes were small and the professors were intellectual and made sure information was conveyed in the easiest and most comfortable manner for students. Unca offers an assortment of really great classes that touch on a diverse of majors and subjects. I chose Sociology. I feel after graduating I was not only a equipt with an universal understanding of the chosen field, but also inherited insight and knowledge on other fields connected to the a sociological realm. I have my professors to thank, myself for pursuing and obtaining a huge goal, and Unca as a whole for giving me the opportunity to exceed and be one step closer to a fulfilling life."
