Wilmington is an amazing locale. Five miles from the beach, the campus is beautiful with its longleaf pines swaying in the cool breeze of a warm day, the scent of wildflowers filling the air... Yeah, it's poetically beautiful. Not only is the campus physically appealing, but the people here are great too. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, everyone is willing to help each other out in true Southern hospitality fashion, and everyone is fun to be with. Not to mention that there is no lack of activities to do in Wilmington, either in the community or on campus itself, with club and intramural sports covering wide ranges, the Cape Fear River nearby, an aquarium, the campus recreation center currently being doubled in size, the beach, Lumina Theater on campus, events like Switchfoot performing in concert, great local restaurants... I could go on and on.» Read More

Everyone wants to be at school at the beach! The weather is awesome. The school even offers a back-to-school bash on the beach before classes start that is tons of fun and a great way to meet new people. On campus, I feel safe and everyone is very friendly. We have an involvement carnival and many other events where student organizations make an effort to be seen by other students. The dining establishments are very clean and updated.» Read More
This campus is so beautiful. There are trees everywhere and all of the buildings are very well constructed. They are currently constructing a new psychology building adjacent to the nursing building and I think it will look very professional and it will be very beneficial. The food is always great here. There is a wide selection to choose from. You can go to the Hawks Nest, which has many different fast food chains, sushi, pizza, pasta, and sandwiches. There is also the dining hall and many other small food court places. The library is always quiet and there are a lot of good resources. The people are all very friendly and it's easy to make new friends here. I think that I am lucky to be able to go to this school. I love everything about it. Plus it's right next to the beach. Who wouldn't love that?» Read More
