Student & Graduate Reviews (20)
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.
UNCG was everything I could have asked for as a first-generation college student. I entered in on a full ride scholarship which supported me throughout. Coming from an extremely small high school, the thought of college was intimidating; the UNCG Guarantee Scholarship Program helped minimize these feelings by introducing us to a family of students from similar backgrounds. This program also provided wraparound support throughout my undergraduate journey, and I even worked as an Office Intern which opened the door for numerous opportunities. As a UNCG undergraduate, I was given the opportunity to study abroad in Mexico and Costa Rica. The exposure to different cultures vastly broadened my understanding and amplified the importance for diversity in everyday life. While on campus, I served as the treasurer for the student led Human Resources Management Association and was nominated as the Sergeant at Arms for the renowned honor society, Beta Gamma Sigma. These were all life-changing experiences in which I owe all credit to the wonderful university that offered them. While many encourage students pursuing their graduate degree to diversify their education, I cant see why I would when I have such a great school right in front of me. Being a graduate from the Bryan School of Business I know the weight that the name holds and I am confident that my skills will be sharpened even more so by returning there. The support that I have always been given by the staff gives me a sense of security that I do not foresee finding at any other university. As clich as it sounds, the phrase Once a Spartan, always a Spartan, comes to mind and although I am already a part of this wonderful family I hope that I can remain there as I pursue my Master of Business Administration.
I attended UNCG as a transfer student, and completed my undergraduate degree in communication sciences and disorders within a two year time-span. I really don't have anything negative to say about the program. Most of the professors are fantastic, and are usually willing to help with any concerns. The program is challenging, but is definitely doable if the student puts in their own fair share of time and effort.
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.
