I am delighted to welcome you to the UNCG community, a special place where you will experience living and learning within an exceptionally beautiful and vibrant campus. We are committed to cultivating a diverse university that promotes student success, provides access to a variety of opportunities, shares your passion for discovery, and prepares you to pursue a meaningful life.
At UNCG, student success is our number one priority. You are offered intellectual challenges, encouragement in your personal and social life, and opportunities to develop new leadership skills through a variety of campus organizations and activities. Here, learning often takes place in small settings inside and outside the classroom. As UNCG’s impressive research and service enterprise continues to expand, professors regularly invite undergraduates to work alongside them in the laboratory and in our communities. I encourage you to take advantage of these and other special academic experiences such as the honors program, study abroad, and internships.
The Undergraduate Bulletin is one of your most valuable resources as you undertake your academic career. It describes the nature of our academic programs and student support services as well as the policies that govern them. Please take the time to become familiar with this important text.
I am confident that you will find faculty and staff who are committed to providing a supportive environment and who will help you realize your full potential and achieve your educational goals. I wish you all the best.
