Party time

Friends. Music. Beer. Floats. Cheerleaders. Soccer players. A king and queen. Inflatables. Kids. Food. Fun. Homecoming has it all. Read more about what's in store at UNCG's biggest party of the year.

Aspiring entrepreneurs

Sometimes hobbies have a way of growing into something more. That was the case for Megan Metzger '05, who began babysitting in high school to save money for college. By the time the Greensboro native came to UNCG, she had 50 clients, all of whom she kept track of on a rolodex. Read more about Metzger's story and take a survey to tell UNCG how it can help you as an entrepreneur.

Reading list

Read any good books this summer? Our freshmen did. This year's Freshmen Summer Reading Project included “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini. Read more about the book and how you can get in on the conversation.

Mighty mentors

Everyone could use a little job advice sometimes. And Spartan Village mentors are available to help. Read more about how to find a mentor.

Best of the best

Know someone who deserves UNCG's highest honor? How about an alumnus who's making a difference? Consider nominating them for one of the university's high-profile awards so they can receive some well-deserved recognition. Read more about how you can nominate someone for the McIver Award, Holderness/Weaver Award, Alumni Distinguished Service Award and Young Alumni Award.
