I joined the tennis club this year and have absolutely enjoyed it! I have made so many friends and love keeping up with the sport I enjoy playing. Find what you're good at or enjoy and JOIN! There's nothing to lose.

Job? During College? How will I manage two time consuming things? First of all, having a job you get to meet so many different people of all ages. You kind of grow up being around these people. I have made great friends through my job. It is hard to balance a job with school work, but make sure your hiring manager knows what hours you can work. Plan for maybe just working the weekends or a few days in the week. Nothing too much that will overwhelm you!

This is one aspect of college that I wish I experienced. Living in a dorm you get to meet people so fast, and it's so easy to connect with other people because chances are they want to meet friends like you.

I have found it EXTREMELY helpful to study with peers. I just started doing this in my 3rd semester and have improved my grades and overall understanding of the material we were studying for. You can just say hey we should go to the library to study for our midterm. It all helps!

What do you think the pros and cons are of living on-campus as opposed to off campus? Is there an experience with this you would like to share?
Also, does anyone know of any off campus apartment complex's that allow large dogs?

Here are the steps I followed for my Study Abroad application:

  • Attend a general study abroad meeting that are found on the UNCW home page
  • Schedule a meeting with the study abroad office
  • Schedule a meeting with your academic advisor to discuss classes
  • Review the books with your parents to decide on a good location for you to attend
  • Start the application process for UNCW and for the program you choose. This application for UNCW is found online under the international studies page.
  • Start picking your classes you think you would like to take over seas.
  • Once you have a general idea of the classes, schedule individual meetings with each department chair to sign your transient study.
  • Get your official transcript
  • Bring all your money and papers to the Study Abroad office when both applications are complete
  • The study abroad office will sign some of the papers your program will ask for
  • Apply for your student visa
  • Finally, most of the stress it out of the way!

I know it is a really long process, I just finished mine. I will be going abroad in about four months! Good luck!

I have one other recommendation for studying abroad. The earlier you start thinking about it in your college career the better! You are given so many more opportunities on where to study if you start the process early. Just go to an information session to help you start somewhere. You can find the times of the sessions online at the UNCW website.

I completely agree, this is how dorm life is. I also lived on campus, and my best friends are the two girls I lived with. It is easy to get around campus, and if you are ever running late to class it is so easy to get there. One thing I recommend is to have food in your dorm. It is much easier to have a bowl of cereal or oatmeal in the morning before an early class instead of going to the dining hall. Also, try and become friendly with your roommate before you move in, it makes the move in process so much easier! Enjoy your dorm life, it is worth it!

Fun Or None ?! by shadymohamedshadymohamed, 03 Jun 2013 16:03

Do:
- they are putting you, them, or your place in danger
- they are not treating you or your belongings with any respect
- they take your stuff (ex. food, beer) but never contribute any of their own
- when you ask them to treat one of your belongings a certain way, and they refuse, or tell you that you are wrong

Don't:
- they have people over and you can't have people over because there's no room
- their habits of doing things that don't effect you tooo negatively
- prety much most other stuff besides what is written above

On Campus Housing by Melissa MccMelissa Mcc, 16 Oct 2012 00:14

As a student, finding the right place to live is vital. There are multiple decisions and choices that need to be taken into consideration when searching for a place to reside. From my living experience here in Wilmington I've learned that location is one of the most important aspects. Like mentioned in the post different locations around town will vary with price and finding the right place to fit into your budget as a student is very important. It may be nice to live at the beach or downtown but is it reasonable? Some areas in Wilmington are also much safer than others and this is a major factor when finding somewhere to live. I have had my house broken into due to the lack of knowledge about the area I decided to reside in. Make sure you consider all your options and don't be afraid to ask questions to relators or rental companies.
