Student & Graduate Reviews

"The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is excellent if you are seeking a Bachelor's degree. Nestled in southeast North Carolina, my university was founded by Native Americans in hopes of training teachers to better educate their youth. The University of North Carolina at Pembroke had purpose since her initial establish date and she carried purpose with her through her current years. A Minority Serving Institution (MSI), the minority is the majority at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Along with this, my university is known to be the most diverse university in southeast North Carolina. This is a fact that is most prized within the university community. The community that surrounds the university is one that is strong. The Lumbee Tribe, whose origins are traced to Pembroke, NC where the university was founded, is that strong community. The Lumbee Tribe graces the campus with their spirited dances and noble story telling during different points of the academic year. The Lumbee Tribe reminds the university community of the importance of embracing history and culture.Putting the history and basics of the university aside, academically the university is great at providing the necessary tools needed to help each student succeed. As a biology major I was worried about the course load and the interaction between student and professor but my worries were alleviated once I had set foot inside a UNCP classroom. With small class sizes and intimate one on one time with the professor, the university sets a perfect atmosphere for academic achievement. The University of North Carolina at Pembroke sets the standard for where a university should be: strong, brave and unwavering."

"It was a good experience. If you're looking for that large school feel, this might not satisfy. But, overall, I enjoyed my time there. The professors were well qualified and the facilities were great. I was a commuter student, so I can't really speak to the dorms."

"You will be just a number, and apparently not an important one. Good luck, you will need it. It took six months of constant effort to be contacted by the school. The contact was less than sufficient. It was clearly evident that there systems are severely lacking from admissions to follow up."

"UNCP was a great experience for me. As a commuter student, the professors were gracious and accommodating. All of the classes were small, and it became a family environment for us, many of us are close today. Attending UNCP opens your eyes to the Lumbee culture and the varying cultures around the country. No one is discriminated, and everyone feels connected."

"UNCP was one of the most diverse universities I could have attended. Along with the small class sizes and personal attention it was a great school."

"The campus is beautiful on any given day, even the muggy and rainy ones, the dorms are okay, the newer ones are obviously nicer than others. The theater and psychology departments are amazing both in curriculum and with the instructors way of relating material to the students. The political science (also advanced) and math departments could use some work with the instructors as far as their styles and how personal they are. They felt like robots reading off their scripts all the time. There is an Indian female professor for chemistry (forgot her name unfortunately) that is beyond phenomenal. And the band will constantly play in areas of study (such as right next to the library), but hey, they're technically studying their work that way. In all honesty, I wouldn't go back for the price but I would go back for the memories. Especially if you intend on joining clubs, living on campus, or participating in athletics, Greek row, etc"
