UNCW Recognized by The Princeton Review and Best Degree Programs Website

Tuesday, August 08, 2017

UNCW has been named a Best Southeastern School on The Princeton Review’s list of "2018 Best Colleges: Region by Region" and its online bachelor’s degree in nursing program is ranked 4th among 2017’s “Best Online B.S.N. Degrees” by the website Best Degree Programs.

“UNCW’s Strategic Plan, in line with our 70-year track record of doing so, in part focuses on providing students an excellent education. In the modern age, this includes applied learning and meaningful academic, social and cultural experiences, as well as strong support for nontraditional and military-affiliated students -- who increasingly take advantage of our online programs,” said Chancellor Jose Sartarelli. “Recognition of these qualities by ranking organizations enables more prospective students to learn about what UNCW has to offer.”

In addition to consistent appearances as a Best Southeastern School in the The Princeton Review’s rankings, the university also was selected within the past year for the publication’s “Guide to 361 Green Colleges, 2016” and “294 Best Business Schools 2017 Edition.”

The Princeton Review does not rank schools by number but lists detailed information about admissions and enrollment, academics, student body, tuition and financial aid and campus life. Feedback from students offers personal insights, and a number of student comments are highlighted in the listing.

One student described UNCW as "a beautiful place full of enthusiastic students and dedicated faculty." Others lauded the accessibility and knowledge of faculty and abundant extracurricular activities: “It's awesome: beautiful weather, beautiful beaches, fantastic people, great atmosphere…basically everything you could ask for in a college experience.”

Best Online Degrees considered recognition by U.S. News & World Report and other ranking organizations, putting strong emphasis on affordability to determine the 30 best online bachelor’s degree programs in nursing.
