"Not academically rigorous or intellectually stimulating in the slightest. The professors are nice, but the information is a joke. Everything is shallow. I suppose some 7th graders might struggle with the material and some of the project assignments, but by 9th grade, most would be capable of getting a B. The monetary value is really good compared to other schools. But what you get out of it is significantly lower value. If you just need a diploma and don't care about potentially regressing your intellect, this is the school for you."

"Terrible school. Definitely do not waste the time or money. They claim to 'help' their students. They don't. The professors are unprepared for class, take forever to respond to your emails, and the classes are chaotic at best. Financial Aid office is rude. Online classes were a joke. They were at early hours in the day which conflict for those of us who work. Just, overall, a terrible school and horrible experience."

"- [ ] If you have any health problems, “physical” or “mental,” do NOT attend this school. UNCG will not be able to help you. One student felt ill and went to the Student Health Center. He was told to sleep it off. He died in his dorm of breathing complications from bronchitis. My friend reported hearing voices. The Health Center did not provide any assistance. My same friend struggled with addiction and begged for help. The Center did not help him at all. (My friend is now free from addiction but with absolutely no thanks to UNCG. UNCG did NOT even attempt to help). I myself was struggling with Bipolar Disorder. I went to the very misleadingly named “Students First Office” every day for a week crying and begging for help. I also went to the “Office of Accessibility and Resources and Services” almost every day the same week. I received no help and subsequently suffered a major manic-depressive episode that was horrific. If you value your health and happiness, do NOT attend UNCG."

"UNCG offered their art students a variety of courses to choose from and although at the time I was not interested in taking that variety, I am glad I was required to. In the end I completed drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and ceramics classes, as well as art history courses. Through this multi-pronged approach, I was well-prepared for my MFA in Photography and confident in my career to respectfully speak my mind and foster collaboration and innovation."

"UNCG is such an amazing school! With so many opportunities with staff and administrators that are truly invested in the students. UNCG is also well connected in the Guilford County community which allows students to have access to jobs and other networks. UNCG also has faculty that do amazing work abroad and with collaboration with other schools. No matter what your major is, there are opportunities in your department to do so much more outside of the classroom. As someone who graduated from the school of social work, I have been able to study abroad in Malaysia, I was a research assistance, teaching assistant, AmeriCorps Member, and 2016 election fellow. All of these opportunities came from being at UNCG and I couldve done so much more if I wanted too! Not to mention the administrative processes of financial aid or registration. UNCG makes it so easy to navigate. The people there are truly there to support students while helping them focusing on their education. I was able to fund my education at UNCG mostly through grants and scholarships. UNCG also continually invests in themselves without giving the burden too much to the students. They are always renovating dorms and building new ones. Constructing new buildings and adding facilities all while tuition stayed pretty consistent. UNCG is also very diverse, as a person of color the last thing I wanted was to feel like other during my undergraduate experience. There is a group for everyone at UNCG and the sense of belonging is for everyone. I absolutely loved my experience there and Im proud to call myself an alumnus."

"I completed a majority of my degree online at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I felt that the coursework was challenging and the professors had very high expectations of students. I thought that the online classes were set up very well and easy to follow. I would recommend their online program to anyone. However, when it comes to dealing with any office on campus, good luck! I know that it has been a couple of years since I had to deal with any of with their on-campus staff, but they all seemed to be very disorganized and unkind. It was difficult to get responses to emails and professors were not understanding of the difficult circumstances I was going through outside of school. One example I can provide dates back to when I initially transferred from ASU to UNCG. I had questions about the credits for the Spanish classes I had taken at ASU because I wanted to minor in Spanish at UNCG. I felt as if I was pushed around from person to person trying to get the right answer, and when I was finally put in contact with the head of the Spanish department, she had hardly any information to give me. I was so fed up with the whole ordeal that I chose to not pursue a minor in Spanish just so I would not have to deal with the headache. I attended Appalachian State University my freshman year of undergraduate school and would recommend ASU before I would recommend UNCG"

"University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a great school! I greatly enjoyed my three years at this school. I transferred there my sophomore year and immediately fell in love! I knew that transferring to the school was the right decision for me. The professors that I had were all great, the school is very diverse, it's the perfect size, and the programs are great! I wanted a school that was not too big and not too small, and UNCG was the perfect amount of people. They offer many social activities and clubs for people who want to stay involved on campus. I loved all the classes that I took and all the friends that I made. I would highly recommend this school to any other person!"

"The campus of UNCG is very diverse. The university is beautiful and located relatively close to popular spots around town. All of the staff Ive encountered during my time there have been nothing less than knowledgeable and super helpful. The gym is beautiful lol and campus living is really good as well."

"I enjoyed my education at UNCG. There are a lot of services available to students to enrich their experience and help them further their career. If you want the support it is there but don't expect someone to want to help you if you're not excited about your own education. Put in the effort and seek out the support services to help you get a head start in your career."
