I am a junior looking at going to school at unc wilmington for my grad certificate in environmental studies. i am originally from dayton, oh and am wondering what kind of a difference it is if anyone knows. it wasnt took much of a shock moving to carbondale which is in southern illinois but nc is much further south....and im a northerner. i have visited ocean isle, nc tons of times and really like it.

is wilmington a good choice? im not really a partier so party schools kinda bug me....but i know every school is a party school. is it a pertty nice city? are there a lot of slums or ghetto areas?

Hi,

I will forward this to my son who is a junior at UNC Wilmington. He is very happy at UNCW. We moved here from DeKalb, IL in 1999 so know the turf you are familiar with and he maybe could answer some questions you have at least about his take on UNCW and the area..

ps...I think he will have positive feedback for you.

thanks for the info. i love nc and my boyfriend does too. his parents have a beach house at topsail so the whole family is kinda migrating.

i know what he means about people being typical southerners down there though. one guy got into a fight with me over how to pronounce appalachia because supposedly i pronounced it weird.

i graduate from siu in may of 09 (or dec. of 08 if i take summer courses) and i think i would take a year off to gain residency in nc so my tuition will be massively cheaper.

thanks for the feedback. (or tell your son thanks for the feedback)
